Lining up P5 and P8, both Lewis and George made strong starts; Lewis vaulting into P3 and George P6 before the red flag flew for a first corner incident.
On the restart, and having taken another set of used Soft tyres, Lewis lost ground and dropped to P4 whilst George gained one position to run in P5.
After that promising start though, it soon became clear that the W14 did not have the pace to fight those ahead or resist some of the faster runners behind.
Both drivers stopped twice more and kept a major focus on tyre management. They took the Medium compound for their middle stint before switching to another used Soft tyre for the final portion of the race.
Unfortunately, George wouldn’t see the chequered flag. He was having to deal with rising Power Unit temperatures, and they would ultimately force his retirement.
Lewis meanwhile ran a lonely race in P8 to bring home a handful of points for the team.
