The safety car was deployed soon after the start following an accident involving several cars. Félix Serralles (Team West-Tec F3) retired on track after losing the front wing of his car and Roy Nissany (kfzteile24 MÃ¼cke Motorsport) had to turn into the pits with a damaged rear wing. Gustavo Menezes (Van Amersfoort Racing) also had his car attended to during a brief check in the pits. Meanwhile, Esteban Ocon led the race from Tom Blomqvist (Jagonya Ayam with Carlin), Max Verstappen and Antonio Fuoco.
Racing resumed at the start of lap five and Ocon remained in the lead. Soon after that, three drivers received a drive-through penalty. Due to jump starts, second-placed Tom Blomqvist, Santino Ferrucci (Eurointernational) and Sean Gelael (Jagonya Ayam with Carlin) each had to take one detour through the pit lane. Thus, Max Verstappen moved up to second place, 2.5 seconds down on race leader Esteban Ocon after seven laps.
A few laps before the end, a collision between Lucas Auer (kfzteile24 MÃ¼cke Motorsport) and Jordan King (Carlin) brought the safety car out once again. Racing resumed again with less than one minute remaining, leaving only one lap to be completed by the young drivers. On this lap, Verstappen initially overtook Ocon, but then lost his lead again to the Frenchman following a driving error. Ocon eventually took the flag as the race winner with Verstappen in second. For Antonio Fuoco, third place was his second podium finish of the day. Jake Dennis (Carlin), Felix Rosenqvist (kfzteile24 MÃ¼cke Motorsport), Dennis van de Laar (Prema Powerteam), Tom Blomqvist, Tatiana Calderon (Jo Zeller Racing), Hector Hurst (Team West-Tec F3) und Antonio Giovinazzi (Jagonya Ayam with Carlin) rounded out the top ten.
