Pierre Gasly, Fernando Alonso and Lando Norris started the Qatar Grand Prix consecutively, from second to fourth respectively. But all had rather different afternoons.

While Alonso finally scored his first podium finish of the year, Gasly failed to score from the front row of the grid and Norris was struck by a late puncture which ruined his race.

Gasly and Norris were possibly disadvantaged by the dirty side of the grid but that wasn’t where either driver lost time. Alonso moved ahead of the Alpine with a superb pass for second place on the outside of turn two as the race began.

As the lap time chart shows, Gasly was slower than the McLaren and the Alpine in the first stint, with Alonso having an additional edge over Norris. As Gasly’s pointed out later, even on fresh tyres he had no chance of keeping pace with the Alpine, which was easily able to out-pace him on older rubber.

Norris began to edge towards Alonso in the second stint. But as he admitted, the McLaren would have been hard pressed to challenge Alonso, whose lap times remained consistent. This was despite Alonso taking particular care to avoid the kerbs, particularly once Valtteri Bottas’ lap 33 failure put everyone on notice. Indeed, Norris stopped gaining on Alonso a few laps before his puncture and pit stop on lap 49.

A Virtual Safety Car was triggered as other drivers also encountered tyre troubles. Until then, Alonso was being caught by Sergio Perez at a tremendous rate – up to two seconds per lap at times. Had it not been for the VSC, Perez would have been on Alonso in the last couple of laps, fighting for the final podium spot.

After the VSC, Max Verstappen took a fresh set of rubber and further lowered the fastest lap time which he already held, ensuring a vital bonus point.

That stop made Verstappen the only driver to do a three-stop strategy. Most teams aimed for single stops though the title contenders made two each as they had the luxury of time over their rivals and a strong desire to avoid tyre problems.

Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz Jnr ran the longest opening stints: Ferrari double-stacked them in the pits after 27 laps. It worked, keeping both their cars in the points and ahead of Daniel Ricciardo. They finished ahead of both McLarens thanks to Norris’ puncture.

The longest pit stops of the race, unsurprisingly, belonged to those who had punctures. Valtteri Bottas had to switch the front wing on his Mercedes, as well as the tyres, after his lap 33 puncture. Appropriate for car number four, Norris had the fourth-best and fourth-worst pit stops.

Here too the title contenders showed they are letting no opportunity for an advantage slip. The three quickest stops of the race were all performed on the cars of Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton.
