In fourth position came the Spanish Roberto Merhi (Zeta Corse), who now occupies the seventh place in the general.
The race was also conditioned by the fact that the first three of the general classification were blocked on the grid. Thus, Carlos Sainz Jr’s anti-stall system failed, standing still and being forced to leave from the pits.
After the start, with no options to score, Carlos Sainz Jr has begun to come back, until an incident with one of his direct rivals in the general classification, Oliver Rowland, has sunk him again in the classification, finishing in 14th place. .
This race launch has meant that the stewards have penalized Carlos Sainz Jr with two positions on the starting grid tomorrow, in the second Moscow race.
Despite this, Carlos Sainz Jr continues to be the leader in the general classification, as Oliver Rowland has abandoned his two most direct pursuers, while Pierre Gasly finished eighteenth.
