Team Principal Ian James described the race that followed as a 'whirlwind' both in terms of the on-track action and the roller-coaster ride of emotions that the team experienced. While Stoffel became a tragic hero, Nyck seized his chance and finished runner-up for the second time this weekend.
"This is my second podium of the weekend, but ultimately, I'm a little disappointed to have only finished runner-up today," he said after the race. "All in all, we were a bit unlucky with the safety car, as we had just activated Attack Mode when it came out on track. That made me vulnerable following the restart and then Lucas di Grassi was suddenly up front, fighting for the lead, which really surprised me, because he shouldn't have been there. In the end, Alex Lynn and Mahindra were deserving winners. I gave it my all, but unfortunately, it was impossible to get alongside him and launch another attack."
