In the round-up: Carlos Sainz Jnr says it is getting harder for McLaren to compete in the fight for third place in the constructors’ championship.

What they say

Sainz and Norris finished seventh and eighth which moved McLaren ahead of Racing Point, but Daniel Ricciardo’s third place meant Renault jumped both of them.

Ricciardo got a lot of points. The fight for third keeps getting tougher and tougher.

Our qualifying wasn’t great but our race pace actually was really good. I felt like I was quicker than all the guys in front of me. It’s just that for some reason today it was very difficult to overtake.

I could only overtake Lando. And then after that I couldn’t pass Kvyat and the guys in front of me. But I think it was the same for everyone.
