A lot of cars started on the tyre purple Ultrasoft compound that has the most grip at the start and the first lap when the tyres aren't at their optimal temperature. From the front runners only Sebastian Vettel started on the Soft compound.

At the end of lap 1 it was Charles Leclerc who was the first to retired his Sauber with a technical issue.
In lap 6 it was the unfortunate Verstappen who's engine failed to perform and had to retire his Red Bull RB14. His retirement caused a VSC.
Kimi Raikkonen was the first to make a pitstop with his Ferrari to get the yellow Soft tyres in lap 15. In lap 25 race leader Hamilton pitted to also get a new set of yellow soft tyres on his Mercedes W09 and returned to the track as race leader.
In lap 51 Belgian driver Stoffel Vandoorne also retired his McLaren with a gearbox problem.
At the end of the race a lot happened to Valtteri Bottas. He was trying to keep both Ferrari's behind him. But with a few laps to go Sebastian Vettel overtook Bottas in turn 1, but in turn 2 Bottas hit the back of Vettel's Ferrari,. He was able to go on and lost his position to Vettel and Raikkonen.
