2018 Bahrain Grand Prix
Today’s race offered a welcome final result after what was a difficult day for the team in qualifying yesterday. Starting in 13th and 14th, both drivers had opposing fortunes – Fernando made a strong start and was able to push forward to make up ground to the cars in front. Stoffel, conversely, had a slower than anticipated start and was 20th after the first corner. Nevertheless, he fought back in impressive style to finish just behind his team-mate – the pair finishing in seventh and eighth positions respectively.
Strong performances from both drivers, and executing a successful strategy which included four strong pit-stops between them, rewarded the team with a second double-points finish in as many races.
Fastest lap 1m34.168s on lap 47 (+0.428s, 3rd)
Pit-stops Two: laps 14 (3.0s)
