Because 75 percent of the race distance was not completed, half points were awarded for the first time since Malaysia 2009.

The race start sequence was halted for many hours as rain continued to pour after a delayed start and a few formation laps behind the safety car. Red Bull had the chance to repair Perez’s vehicle during this period, but he had to start from the pitlane, costing him a seventh-place finish because he was classified last.
The race was begun behind the safety car with an hour on the clock due to a brief respite in the rain, although the weather remained extremely wet. The race was red-flagged after two and a half circuits as the rain became more intense, making the event official for half points.
