Finn Valtteri Bottas is in pole position. He starts well and has managed the race excellent after the start.
The first important moment was in lap 11 when the Red Bull car driven by Max Verstappen ran into problems with the gearbox, the Dutchman being forced to give up. A few laps later, Daniel Ricciardo-Renault is in the same trouble. The safety car appeared on the road after Kevin Magnussen-Haas ran out of brakes and his car was in the scenery.
After the restart, Hamilton put pressure on his colleague, but from the speakers, both were given the task of adapting their driving, because on both cars, a sensor from the gearbox was in a critical condition.
The race was calm until lap 51 when the safety car re-entered the circuit after George Russell-Williams abandoned due to technical problems. Immediately after the restart, the right front wheel of Kimi Raikkonen's car gave way, the "iceman" pulling next to the speaker line. Once again, the Safety Car returned to the circuit.
The restart with number 3 brought a lot of agitation in the platoon, the critical moment being the one between Hamilton and Alexander Albon-Red Bull Racing. The world champion touches Alex, the latter being twisted in the gravel trap. Unfortunately, Albon would give up a few rounds later. After that, Hamilton received a 5-second penalty.
