Race

The start of the race was a tricky one with the track still being wet from the rain. All the drivers started with the Intermediate tyres except Sainz who started with the Super Softs. In the first laps we had a Virtual Safety car for the crash of Lance Stroll and then a Safety Car for the crash of Giovinazzi. While under the safety car Bottas lost control of his car and droped down to 12th. Vettel after being stuck behind Riciardo and Raikonen he managed to overtake them both and then chased down Verstappen who he managed to overtake aswell. At the end of the race things have settled down in the first two places but we had a fight between the redbulls for third place. In the end Hamilton won the race, Vettel came in second and Verstappen came in third.
