Alex Albon drove so well he may end up replacing Pieree Gasly in 2020?
In wet weather the teams had no data to use from any previous race this season so they had to wing-it, make the calls on the fly, not all of them, including the top teams made that work to plan.

Sebastian Vettel from 20th to 2nd was the racer of the day for Ferrari.
