Lap 29/58: Leclerc finally pits, and opts for the hard tyre. It’s now Bottas leading Hamilton at the top, with the champion struggling to reach his teammate’s pace. Vettel is third… for now – Verstappen is all over the back of him.
Lap 28/58: Giovanazzi into the pit. Finally. He’s a long way back but will be powering back into it. Bottas still the man to beat.
