    Lap 28. Now Sainz and Perez change tyres. Verstappen leads, followed by Leclerc and Sainz.

    Lap 41. There’s contact between Pierre Gasly and Lando Norris. Virtual Safety Car followed by the real Safety Car.  None of the top three pit, but Perez does, going from Hard to Medium tyres. 

    Lap47. The race resumes. Charles tries to pass Verstappen but cannot manage it, even though the pair are incredibly close in terms of pace. 

    Finish. Charles keeps trying until, with two laps to go, he decides to bring home the 18 points for second place, while Carlos put up a heroic defence to fend off Sergio Perez and his new Medium tyres. Verstappen wins from Charles and Carlos. Scuderia Ferrari and Leclerc keep the lead in their respective championships.
