The DAMS cars are looking mighty through the final sector: indicates they have a lot of mechanical grip. Richelmi will be happy with that, considering his home GP is basically all about mechanical grip. The scariest thing is: Ericsson’s ultimate lap is three tenths faster than his pole lap!
Top eight: the usual suspects (though Richelmi is a bit of a surprise), followed by Ceccon and Giovesi? Didn’t expect that. Very disappointed with Evans and Dillmann though.
@roald Yes: I mean, last week he already qualified tenth (he admitted he could have gone a few tenths faster), so I expected him to do even better this weekend – and he did. If he keeps improving like that throughout the season, he will be a front-runner by the time we get to Abu Dhabi :)
Robin Frijns takes his maiden GP2 win ahead of Carlin duo Felipe Nasr and Jolyon Palmer. They were followed by Jon Lancaster, Stefano Coletti, Tom Dillmann, Alexander Rossi, Kevin Ceccon(reverse grid pole), Johnny Cecotto Jr. and Rio Haryanto..
Now I’m really bummed out the former F1 rights holder here was showing WTCC and Indy reruns instead of the Gp2 race.. Excellent result from Frijns, I literally bursted into a cheer reading that! I expected him to win this season, but not this fast!
