Alex Lynn admits he is “very sorry” to have ended Sergey Sirotkin’s race last Saturday after an overtake went wrong.
The Briton was carrying out a DRS assisted overtake on Stoffel Vandoorne for a de facto second place in the Feature Race before applying the brakes too late and careering into the side of the Rapax driver.
“It was a missed opportunity. I’m also very sorry for Sergey Sirotkin as his race on Saturday was ruined at the same time as mine,” Lynn said.
“It was the first time I used the DRS in that spot to overtake Vandoorne. I was carried along by the momentum and I braked a fraction too late.
“It was a real pity as the car was really extraordinary this weekend.”
Lynn received a grid penalty for causing a collision with Sirotkin and started the Sprint Race from the pit lane.
The Briton completed a fightback on the Sunday morning to bag a top ten finish, just over one second away from scoring a point for his efforts.
