True Perez scale

Winners and Losers

As ever, after every race, we bring you our round-up of the Winners and Losers from the weekend that was.

Gasly's claim

Fortunately for Kevin Magnussen, some of the heat from his accident with Perez was taken off of him by Esteban Ocon's clumsy move on Alpine team-mate Pierre Gasly at Portier.

It put Ocon out of the race and earned him a furious rebuke from boss Bruno Famin, with Ocon apologising soon after the riot act was read.

But Gasly has revealed how Ocon appears to have broken a pre-race agreement between the team and drivers.
