- 20 cars started the warmup lap before the start, but 14 cars pulled to pit lane during the start and did not participate in the race as part of a Michelin withdrawal.
- All cars finished the race apart from Felipe Nasr, who was still classified as he had completed more than 90% of the race distance.
- All cars finished the race apart from Brendon Hartley, who was still classified as he had completed more than 90% of the race distance.
- Since 1982, all race timings have been done to the nearest 0.001 seconds, but previously many races, including the 1971 Italian Grand Prix, were not. As a result it is impossible to know whether the finish was closer than that of the 2002 United States Grand Prix.
