Logan Sargeant dominated Silverstone with a lights to flag victory after being chased by Théo Pourchaire in the final few laps.
Sargeant had the dream start from his first pole position in his F2 career and was followed by Pourchaire behind who managed to gain two places from his grid spot.
The safety car was brought out on Lap 2 following an incident with Dennis Hauger and Roy Nissany. Hauger hit the sausage kerb at the Vale Chicane after being forced off the track by Nissany, which subsequently sent the PREMA into the air. Thankfully, both drivers are okay.
Race leader, Sargeant was enjoying track conditions after the safety car restart. His pace meant he could make himself safe from DRS from Pourchaire behind him, whilst also putting in multiple purple sectors.
Frederik Vesti was the first of the top 10 to pit on Lap 10. He was followed into the pits by a group of cars, including Enzo Fittipaldi who suffered a slow stop, as well as Ayumu Iwasa one lap later who dropped multiple positions from fourth as a consequence.
Front runners, Sargeant and Pourchaire came into the pits on Lap 12, both stops were perfect which allowed them both to extend their gap out front.
Both ARTs are under investigation for suspected pit stop infringements with the outcome from the investigation expected after the race.
Jüri Vips was the first of the alternate strategy runners to pit for soft tyres on Lap 23. He came out in 12th place, just outside of the points with others yet to stop. Behind him was Jehan Daruvala who was chasing him before the pit stop stages, he was able to get ahead of Vips, momentarily by staying out an extra lap. The positions swapped yet again while Daruvala was heating up his tyres.
On the final lap, both Carlins were able to hold off the charge of both ARTs for first and third as the pressure was high in the closing stages. Logan Sargeant joined Jack Doohan in taking his first win in Silverstone this weekend. He stood on the podium with Pourchaire, who put in a great effort to take the win, and his teammate Liam Lawson who kept Vesti behind.
