Background[edit]

Track changes[edit]

Ahead of the race it was announced that a third DRS zone would be added between turns 13 and 14, down the Esplanade Drive, to aid overtaking.[2]

Championship standings before the race[edit]

Entering the round Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes lead the drivers and constructors championships by 63 and 154 points respectively. The size of their leads mean that both will still be leading their respective championships after the race regardless of the races outcome.[3]

Entries[edit]

The drivers and teams entered were the same as those for the previous race with no additional stand-in drivers for the race or practice. Towards this race, Haas enters without the Rich Energy title sponsor due to the termination of the sponsorship agreement after the Italian Grand Prix.[4][5]
