Perhaps the unseen drive of the day was that of Jean-eric Vergne. Confined to a back-row start thanks to a sixth engine change, JeV drove through the filed to score points, in an impressive ninth: "I was very happy about my race until I was informed about Jules' accident. Getting some news about him is all that matters at the moment. As for myself, starting from the back of the grid and ending up in the points at the end is a great achievement. “Today, in such racing conditions, it was really difficult not to make mistakes, while driving as fast as possible, trying to be quick, but I believe that myself and the team did an excellent job." Team Principal Franz Tost summed up the day: "Our drivers' performance in the Grand Prix seems secondary today, as we all await news of Bianchi's condition. “We scored another two points, which is quite positive for the team. Jean-eric Vergne started from the back of the grid because of our sixth engine change, which meant for him a 10 grid positions penalty. “However, he showed a very good performance, driving a fantastic race, catching up and finishing in the ninth position. Without the red flag I reckon he would have finished in an even better position but nevertheless to score points is really a great result for him and the team. “Daniil Kvyat was also always within the points but unfortunately we called him in just before the safety Car was deployed, so he lost some positions. even though he managed to overtake Raikkonen, this was not enough to score the points that he deserved.
