Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc, who originally started from P2, gained an advantage with a free pit stop after Williams’ Nicholas Latifi crashed.

Leclerc made up a position and led the race for a while.

On lap 42, Max Verstappen pulled forward with DRS on the backstretch, but Leclerc came back with DRS and kept the lead. Verstappen aimed for another move on lap 43 but was locked into the last corner along with the Ferrari, with the Ferrari retaining P1.

A temporary dip followed and early on lap 47 Verstappen tried to make sure he had DRS and took the lead from Leclerc who failed to cut him this time. Leclerc set the fastest lap in the closing stages with a second wind but Verstappen held him back by 0.549s and overcame fear of a late Sector 1 yellow flag to win by 0.549s.
