He had a clear victory as Mercedes-AMG's Valtteri Bottas crossed the finish line in second place 8.894 seconds back, while Ferrari's Kimi Räikkönen claimed the third spot on the podium after crossing the line 9.637 seconds behind the winner.

The race started with Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel on pole and Räikkönen by his side, followed by Bottas and Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton in the second row and Ricciardo and his teammate Max Verstappen in the third row. The battle was set.

Vettel was in control and looked set to win his third race in a row but just after the midway point Toro Rosso’s Pierre Gasly crashed into his teammate Brendon Hartley at a hairpin after a bit of failed communication. With the safety car out, Red Bull called in both drivers for soft tires, with Verstappen third at the time and Ricciardo fifth.
