Russell dropped to last with a pit stop to replace his tyres at the end of the first lap, but drove an impressive race to fight back to fourth place, underlining what might have been possible for both cars had they not collided. By the final stint, Norris was up into third place and closing on Piastri when the team told the drivers to hold position.
