Max Verstappen took over the lead from Carlos Sainz after ten laps. The Spaniard made a mistake and the Dutchman could take P1. However, Verstappen suffered an issue a few laps later, forcing him to make a pit stop.

Verstappen slowly came closer to Sainz's Ferrari. The Spaniard felt the pressure, as he lost his car and ended up off-track. This allowed the Red Bull driver to take over the lead after the restart.

However, a few laps later, things also went wrong for Verstappen on the same stretch. The Dutchman suspected he had a flat tyre and immediately entered the pit lane. He is currently in sixth place, but the Red Bull driver suspects there is more to the story. Verstappen still experienced problems after the pitstop and Red Bull confirmed he had bodywork issues.
