Andrea Kimi Antonelli took another straightforward lights-to-flag win in the second ADAC Formula 4 race of the weekend at Hockenheim.
In a repeat of race one, Antonelli got a good start from pole position while Taylor Barnard got ahead of Rafael Camara for second place on the opening lap – only for Camara to get back past on the following lap.
Mercedes junior Antonelli’s lead didn’t grow quite as large as on Saturday, with his final margin over Ferrari-backed Prema team-mate Camara at 3.537 seconds as he continued his 100 per cent record in non reversed-grid races in ADAC F4.
Barnard dropped back into the clutches of his PHM Racing team-mate Nikita Bedrin – a first-lap retirement in race one – who eventually found a way past in the closing stages to complete the podium.
James Wharton, demoted to last place after race one because of a jump start, overtook Martinius Stenshorne – a fellow protege of Nicolas Todt – for fifth place during the first third of the race but Stenshorne fought back and pulled away to take another fifth place finish for Van Amersfoort Racing.
Marcus Amand, who failed to even start race one, was also part of that battle early on before going off into the gravel as he tried to defend from Jonas Ried.
That dropped the US Racing driver back several places but he recovered well to beat Conrad Laursen to seventh. Ried and Charlie Wurz rounded out the top 10.
Brando Badoer was turned around at the hairpin on the first lap by VAR team-mate Arias Deukmedjian, who had to pit with front wing damage and eventually retired after rejoining a lap down.
