The first-lap collision in the Spanish Grand Prix presented an opportunity which several teams seized upon to score big results.
First among them was Force India. They claimed fourth and fifth places thanks to Sergio Perez and Esteben Ocon, who dodged the unfolding chaos.
Nico Hulkenberg did even better, gaining six places in his Renault. He picked up one more position by the end of the race to finish sixth, albeit a long way behind the leaders.
On the other side of the coin Felipe Massa lost nine places due to his first puncture. He managed to recover and passed his team mate shortly before the race finishes.
