Later in Race 2, Gerloff lost several places in the first corner battles and dropped outside the top 15. The American began his charge back through the field, but his hopes were ended on lap 11, when he fell at Turn 1 and was forced to DNF. Meanwhile, Nozane managed to add another point to his world championship tally in 15th.
