Notes

  • ^3 – Fauzy and Král had their finishing positions swapped after post-race investigations: Fauzy passed the Czech driver behind the safety car but was ordered to let Král through. Then the stewards determined that the Malaysian was within his rights to pass Král, because the Czech had slowed too much, so they switched their positions.[3]
