Vettel scores points, ends up just outside of the podium.
Stroll DNF on his 'home' course.
What do you mean by 'home' with quotations??
I personally do not believe that any track is an actual 'home' for any racer. They were not born at the track, they were not raised there, they do not live there, and it is unlikely they have particular superiority of track knowledge more than any other experienced racer. It is not 'home' for anyone. There may be a fan-bias towards a racer from that country where it is being held, and that's great for them. Perhaps other people can call it a 'home' race for someone, but I choose to put it in quotes, both acknowledging that some people call it 'home' and it actually is not. I see tracks as just another location, each with unique properties, in this global sport.
