His lap count raised to 169 at the close of your afternoon, which had been sufficient to head the mileage rankings also, although his margin across the field was paid down while his laptime did not enhance in the afternoon.
With an overdue lap on the c 3 noodle over the last half-hour snatching next spot, the advantage of Vettel decreased to under another.
But, McLaren driver Sainz stole back it with a 1m18.558so to trail Vettel by just 0.397s.
