The fact that Bottas managed to claw his way back onto the podium after a disappointing start in Baku, whilst neither Ferrari driver did, means Mercedes have pulled more of a gap at the top of the championship standings. They now have a 24 point buffer to the next team, which isn't quite a race win, but is the furthest the gap has been all season.

In the midfield competition, Williams jumped ahead of Toro Rosso thanks to Stroll's hefty points haul from third, whilst Haas also moved up a position. They now have three points over close rivals Renault, who suffered a double DNF type of afternoon.
