The start of Christian Lundgaard was a bit average, but he managed to keep his 4th position. Alex Peroni kept 14th, and Jarno Opmeer stayed on 19th position. Then the safety car went out after a collision in turn 3. It took 3 minutes to clear the track before the race restarted
Lundgaard lost one position after Neil Verhagen overtook him on the main straight just one lap after the safety car went in. Alex Peroni moved up one place in the meanwhile to 13th position, and Jarno Opmeer did not much later the same.
The people on the grandstand started to pull out their umbrellas with 10 min to go. The circuit lays high, and between the mountains, so the weather can change unexpectedly. Some drivers were starting to go off the track, and so the race control decided to bring the safety car out. Not much later the red flag went out, and the race stopped, because of the weather conditions.
