Hamilton stretched 1.5 seconds from Bottas in one lap, but the British were soft, the Finn and behind him Verstappen were driving moderately. However, it has no advantage compared to being penalized twice (!) For five seconds for what happened before the start!

Meanwhile, Norris and Albon fought a great battle for the penultimate place.

There was no change in the lead after the reboot, with Räikkönen alone overtaking 15th.

The safety car left the track at the end of the lap, the race resumed.

The job is in the scoring places: Hamilton, Bottas, Verstappen, Ocon, Ricciardo, Perez, Gasly, Leclerc, Magnussen, Grosjean.

Russell, Albon and Norris also went to the box for hard tires.

Bottas walked past Verstappen, but Hamilton could not be overtaken by the Finn, though he had been ahead of him for some time. Verstappen and several behind him widened the two turns, including Sainz, who broke down McLaren when he returned to the track. Stroll Racing Point also ended up in the wall, so the safety car was sent to the track.

Magnussen had a hard time coming off the grid, he was the last to come after the field.
