Sargeant remained in the lead at the restart. Meanwhile, David Beckmann was given a 10-second stop-and-go penalty for the starting procedure infringement.
After 9 laps of racing, drivers began the cycle of mandatory pit stops. Ayumu Iwasa, who was 4th, had a slow pit stop because of problems with the left rear tire and lost several positions. Vesti managed to get ahead of Felipe Drugovich during the sequence. However, Alleged infringements during pit stops of both ART GP drivers would be investigated by the stewards after the race.
