Having endured several traumatic race weekends of late – not least of which when his front suspension spectacularly collapsed in practice for the Chinese Grand Prix – Buemi had a faultless race en route to 8th place, including leading the race for a single lap!

“I am super happy to have scored four points because we did not expect that much,” a thrilled Sébastien beamed after the race. “The team did an excellent job, especially during the pit-stops, and also the strategy was spot on.
