Spengler’s arrestation by the CUPRA of Gené into T1 enabled the Veloster of Jean-Karl Vernay to gain advantage and get past, leaving Spengler with only team0mate Luca Filippi behind in the six-car battle.

Up front Gené put Tambay under pressure early on in the 5-lap encounter, whilst at the back it was a very different strategy for Filippi, aiming to conserve Power Up till later in the race, meaning the dropped off from the early adopters in the pack ahead.
Tambay was not to be disturbed or displaced by his team-mate, whilst Michelisz kept the CUPRA couple under close watch and soon reeled in Gené as the battle entered half distance.
As Michelisz looked for a way past the car in front, so team-mate Vernay was more concerned with the car behind as Spengler had him under close scrutiny.
For the penultimate lap, Tambay had a gap of a second from Gené behind, so his task was merely to not make any mistakes to take the flag first. Gené meanwhile was able to shake the interests of Michelisz, whilst Spengler could but try to get past Vernay.

Come the final lap, Michelisz was back with Gené and Spengler right with Vernay, but neither aggressor was able to make anything stick so come the chequered flag it was Tambay from a closed-up Gené, Michelisz on his own, from Vernay under attack from Spengler with a distant Filippi taking sixth place.
