Vettel, starting from the third position of the starting grid, after Leclerc, in pole position, and after the British Lewis Hamilton from Mercedes, managed to reach the front of the platoon due to the strategy to change the tires.

In the 7-10 place were British McLaren-Renault’s Lando Norris, Frenchman Pierre Gasly from Toro Rosso, German Nico Hulkenberg from Renault and Antonio Giovinazzio from Alfa Romeo.
