René Binder stalls on the grid during the formation lap, the Austrian will have to start from the pitlane. Good start for Alex Palou who gets in the lead after turn one, closely followed by Orudzhev, Fittipaldi and Isaakyan. After the first lap completed Palou seems to have a small advantage, with Orudzhev and Fittipaldi fighting for P2, René Binder finally rejoins the field, 1 lap down on everyone.
In the back we also see a battle for fifth, between Alfonso Celis Jr and Roy Nissany. Fittipaldi completely misses the first corner, locks up big time and goes straight in the wall. Orudzhev, who now has a clear way in front of him, puts in a fastest lap setting the chase to Palou.
Alfonso Celis Jr is the first to pit, Roy Nissany and Konstantin Tereschenko are the next to pit, keeping their battle for position even in the pitlane. Alex Palou pits from the lead, while Egor Orudzhev decides to stay out on track a little longer.
Orudzhev still on track, seems to be pushing hard to get the overcut on Palou. Palou already back up in 2nd position 27 seconds behind the leader. Orudzhev finally pits, the Russian getting out just ahead of the Spaniard to keep the lead. From here both will be in a thrilling battle for the win.
Further back we see battles between Isaakyan and Menchaca for 3rd & Celis Jr and Nissany for 5th. With 11mins + 1 lap to go, Nissany finally finds his way past Celis Jr., while Isaakyan has to fight to keep position. The Russian will eventually lose the position and Menchaca moves up into 3rd.
The battle for 5th is still on as Celis Jr gets closer and they are joined by Tereschenko. Later they also catch up on Isaakyan, which makes it a four-way battle for fourth position. Tereschenko and Isaakyan touch in their battle, with Tereschenko losing most and ending in 7th.
