Championship standings after the raceEdit
- Although Brendon Hartley made his Formula One début in the race, he received a grid penalty because power unit components are assigned to the car rather than the driver. Hartley thus received the penalty because the car's previous drivers, Daniil Kvyat and Pierre Gasly, had used up the quota of power unit components.
