In the race, Hamilton kept the lead at the start. Valtteri Bottas made contact with Kimi Räikkönen as the latter made a move past the former at the second corner, giving Bottas a puncture and damaging one of Räikkönen's bargeboards. Bottas came into the pits to change his tyres and front wing, but was already lapped by some of the runners. Daniil Kvyat's car stalled on the side of the track on lap 10, eventually bringing out the safety car. Moments after the restart, the safety car was deployed again, after debris from Räikkönen's car spread out across the start/finish straight. At the second restart, as Hamilton bunched up the field, Vettel made contact with him twice. The two Force Indias collided at the second corner while Räikkönen received a puncture, deploying the safety car for a third time, then bringing out the red flag on lap 23 when there was more debris on the track. Soon after the race was restarted, Hamilton was forced to pit from the lead at the end of lap 31 when his headrest came loose, and had to have it replaced, while Vettel had to later come into the pits to serve a ten-second stop-go penalty for what the stewards called "dangerous driving" against Hamilton earlier in the race. However, Vettel emerged out in front of Hamilton, and was able to hold him off as they fought their way through the field to come into fourth and fifth place respectively. Daniel Ricciardo, who started tenth on the grid after hitting the wall during qualifying, inherited the lead after Vettel pitted, and went on to take his and Red Bull's first win of the season, while Bottas, having to fight through the field after the safety car periods helped him unlap himself, overtook Lance Stroll just before the finish line to take second. Stroll finished third, earning his first ever podium and becoming the second youngest driver to finish on the podium.
