A pit stop strategy worked well for the Red Bull team to leap ahead of Hamilton, during the first safety car period - trigged by Massa at lap 30 who managed to replicate a crash similar to Saturday’s practice after a left hand car failure.

Kimi Raikkonen's race was disrupted at the closing stages by Perez after a overtaking move by the later ended up in contact for both cars. A late pit stop to rectify a puncture saw Raikkonen dropping down the trail - but managed to fight back to 10th by the end of the race.
