Vettel started the race from pole and stayed in control through to the end to finish some 7.0 seconds clear of Mercedes-AMG's Valtteri Bottas, the second finisher. Red Bull Racing's Max Verstappen crossed the line 8.3 seconds after Vettel to claim the third spot on the podium.

The race started off with a first-lap collision between Toro Rosso's Brendon Hartley and Williams' Lance Stroll, which brought out the safety car. When being passed by Hartley on the outside of a turn, Stroll lost control and came into contact with Hartley who was then sandwiched between Stroll and a wall.

The race was over for both drivers and Hartley was taken to hospital though fortunately was given the all clear from doctors. Stewards later determined the crash to be a racing incident.

The race resumed four laps later and from here Vettel, on a one-stop strategy, didn't have any issues so only had to manage his lead, the tires, the fuel consumption and pay particular attention to the backmarkers.
