Although the Suzuki race should last 53 laps, the light indicating the end of the race has been lit up a lap earlier. Due to the rule that the end of the race flag is irrevocably over, the end result will be so 52. which means that Sergio Perez will retain 9th place despite the collision.

Sergio Perez collided with Pierre Gasly at the start of the last lap and collided with a guardrail, but because of a systematic failure to announce the end of the race, Mexican will be able to retain the 9th position he occupied before the incident.

The FIE rules stipulate that the race at the checkered flag is irrevocably completed, whether or not an error has occurred. Perez thus retained 9th place at 10. Nico Hulkenberg fell and Lance Stroll scored no points.
