Kevin Magnussen showed promising progress with an early swap to intermediate tires after a race start on full wet tires behind the safety car.

He continued to race but subsequently ended up in the barriers again and retired from the Grand Prix. Jolyon Palmer's race was far shorter, ending after aquaplaning into the barriers on the main straight, then into the barriers at Sainte Devote on the seventh lap.
