BackgroundEdit

Championship standings before the raceEdit

Heading into the race Lewis Hamilton held a seven point lead over team mate Valtteri Bottas in the Drivers' Championship. In the Constructors' Championship it was Mercedes who held a 96 point advantage over Ferrari.[2]

EntrantsEdit

The drivers and teams were the same as the season entry list with no additional stand in drivers for either the race or practice.[3] This race saw Alfa Romeo driver Kimi Räikkönen celebrate his 300th Grand Prix entry.[4]

QualifyingEdit

It was Lewis Hamilton who got pole position with a new qualifying lap record ahead of teammate Valtteri Bottas equaling the record for most front row lockouts. Max Verstappen qualifying in third, his highest qualifing of the year.[5][6][7] The biggest shock of the session was local Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc, whose team Ferrari held in the garage late in Q1 to save tyres. Ferrari later admitted this was a team mistake.[5][8]
