The only night race of the season kicks off with a good start for everyone as well as a good Turn 1. After that the Force India's crashed because Perez pushed his teammate Esteban Ocon into the wall. That meant the end of the race for Ocon.

Right after that Vettel completed a pass on Verstappen for 2nd.

But as Ocon's damaged car was still on track the Safety Car was deployed, but fastly came in on Lap 4. Restart went all okay for everyone with no contact. Some Laps after the Safety Car with DRS is enable Hamilton, Vettel and Verstappen all were in the DRS window with Bottas in P4 1,6sec behind.

Fastly on Lap 14 Hamilton starts to create a gap of 3sec to Vettel and right after that the Ferrari driver pitted for Ultrasofts to undercut Hamilton. But that didn't worked for him as Hamilton stopped for Softs a lap later and came out in front of Vettel.

At first McLaren reported light spots of rain in the pitlane, followed by reports from Red Bull with drizzle from Turn 8 to Turn 11. But was nothing serious as it was dry the whole race.

Verstappen also pitted for softs and was fighting Vettel at pitlane exit to secure himself the 2nd place.

After the action on Lap 1 nothing exciting happened just Alonso and Grosjean fighting for P8 and Leclerc passing Gasly for 9th.

Perez, who pitted quiet early, still stuck behind the Williams ( both on Softs ) since his stop which costs him a spot in the Top 10.

As they were halfway through Alonso and Sainz, on P7 and P8, still have to go to pitlane with most of the field having their one stop. This strategy is most likely to give them both points because some of the drivers chasing the Top 10 stuck behind Sirotkin.

With Perez' nerves seemed to go down he tried to get Sirotkin but instead they touched and Perez had to pit again for a new front wing and even though there were debris on the track the Safety Car wasn't deployed this time. For this move the Force India driver received a drive through penalty, which puts him last again.

On Lap 38 the first cars got lapped by Hamilton which gave Verstappen the opportunity to pass Hamilton for 1st after he was 5sec behind while Grosjean ignored blue flags.

Because of this the Haas driver got a 5+ sec time penalty. Also a 5+ sec time penalty was handed to Sirotkin for forcing another driver ( Hartley ) off track.

With 7 laps before the checkered flag Kimi Raikkonen, who is on P5, taking time from Bottas in front and now is in the DRS window.

But at the end Bottas stays in front and secured him 4th and with Hamilton winning this race the podium will be completed by Verstappen on P2 and Vettel on P3. Also a great race from Alonso and Sainz who finshed 7th and 8th.
