Pre Race: Charles Leclerc was unable to start the race due to a driveshaft issue. As a result, pole position was left empty.

Race Start: Max Verstappen had a really good start and was able to keep Valtteri Bottas behind.

Lap 31: Disaster for Mercedes as a wheel gun got stuck during Valtteri Bottas' pit stop, so they had to retire the car. Meanwhile, Lewis Hamilton said he "lost three places" due to strategy.

Lap 68: Lewis Hamilton (P7), having a big gap to Lance Stroll behind him, emerged to the pits to switch to soft tyres, and managed to set the fastest lap of the race (and a new track record), marking a 1:12.909.
