Finishing next was Carlos Sainz Jr of Ferrari who progressed from 12th on the grid to take sixth place after multiple overtakes in the initial laps including passing Lance Stroll on Lap 45 by using D ₹ Teammate Charles Leclerc finished right behind at P7, in what was a rather adventurous outing for the driver after making contact with Pierre Gasly of AlphaTauri on the opening lap. The incident damaged Ferrari front wing, while Gasly suffered a left-rear puncture. Leclerc made two pitstops as he made his way back up to the midfield.

He ended up finishing 13th, ahead of Esteban Ocon in the Alpine.
