Sargeant stayed on slick tires during the wet early stages of the race but lost a lot of time due to the tricky conditions. As the track dried, he found himself in last place and eventually went off the road after hitting the inside kerb at Turn 8 on lap 15. This incident occurred just a day after he crashed heavily on slicks during qualifying. Sargeant believed that something had gone wrong with the front of the car, but it was later confirmed that a hydraulic issue had affected the steering, causing the crash. Despite using the same kerb throughout the weekend without any issues, the impact during the race caused a loss of hydraulic pressure and steering control. Sargeant expressed disappointment for the team and everyone involved in preparing the car, and also suggested that having the option to switch to intermediate tires in the wet might have changed the outcome.
