Romain Grosjean was relieved to score in China, his first time inside the top-ten since Monaco last season.
Starting the grand prix from eighth on the grid, Grosjean made up one place off the line and spent most of the 56-lap grand prix running inside the top-ten.
Two pit stops later, in which he went from a soft-medium-medium strategy, the Frenchman was on course for his first points of the season.
And with a late Safety Car meaning the drivers had to take the chequered flag in formation, Grosjean finished seventh, scoring his first six points of the season.
"It's the best we could do and it's satisfying to have achieved the team's first points of the season," he said.
"I'm proud of everyone at Enstone and at the track.
"It wasn't an easy circuit for us, with a lot of front limited corners that we don't particularly like, but we had a strong start, and most of the stints were good too.
"We've made a good job improving the car race after race and it's great to finally score points. The next race could be promising too."
