Team Manager, François Sicard, said:

Of course, we are relieved that Sean is okay after his incident, although he had to miss the Sprint Race and will be resting which is the priority. It’s never a good thing when your driver gets injured, but it could have been a lot worse. We wish him a speedy recovery.
