Coming into the race from Berlin a fortnight earlier, Nelson Piquet, Jr. was leading the championship on 103, with Sébastien Buemi second 2 points behind. They had both jumped Lucas di Grassi, who was disqualified from the Berlin race for having an illegal front wing. Di Grassi sits third on 93 points. The win was inherited by Jérôme d'Ambrosio, who sits in fifth on 77 points, one point behind Nicolas Prost.

It was the first for di Grassi since the season opener, and the first time the top 3 in the championship took the Fan Boost advantage.
