The safety car was first brought out when debris off Tom Dillmann's chassis was scattered across the track. Of the front runner's, only Calado was yet to pit, and his lead over the rest of the field was destroyed by the pack backing up behind the safety car. When the safety car came in Calado was still in the lead, but was yet to pit. Only a few laps passed before the safety car came in again, when Jolyon Palmer made contact with the back of Fabrizio Crestani's chassis, flipping Crestani's car twice before it came to rest upside down on the tarmac. Thankfully Crestani was able to walk away from the accident, and it appears he escaped serious injury.
When the action resumed again, Calado led from Luiz Razia and Esteban Gutiérrez, but was still required to make a pitstop. Gutiérrez managed to pass Luiz Razia for 2nd on lap 23. Calado finally pit from the lead, just as the safety car came out for the third time of the race, after Giancarlo Serenelli stopped on the circuit after his car was tapped from behind, putting the Venezuelan driver into a spin. When Calado emerged he was down in 10th, and Gutiérrez became the race leader. Marcus Ericsson also passed Razia to take 2nd.
