Michael was the big mover this round, and regained the overall lead, thanks to the performances of Daniel Ricciardo and Valtteri Bottas taking 1-2 from outside the front row, and Lance Stroll and Marcus Ericsson moving up from the back of the field. Evan has moved with help from Nico Hülkenberg, and Ian’s consistent picks have kept him near the top in third.
