Further up the field, former Formula 1 world champion Jenson Button is in the thick of the action in the Hypercar class.

The #38 Hertz Jota Porsche is seventh at present following a strong start to the race.

Indycar legend Scott Dixon is racing the #3 Cadillac and despite a strong start from his team-mate Sebastian Bourdais, is only 14th at the moment.

Mick Schumacher, driving for the #36 Alpine, is currently running 16th as they carry the home crowd’s hopes after the #15 Alpine retired from the race.

After a slow start to the race, Brendon Hartley and Sebastien Buemi have helped catapult the #8 Toyota into fourth spot.
