Koiranen GP’s Nyck de Vries won the final race of the 2014 Formula Renault Alps season at Circuito de Jerez.

The Dutchman celebrated his ninth win in the 14 races of the season, leading from lights to flag in a straightforward finale.

A series of lap one incidents brought out the safety car period, which briefly disrupted the Dutchman’s control over the gap to his rivals, but he would prove unmatched after the race was restarted, eventually finishing 3.8s clear of the field.

Tech 1’s Egor Orudzhev, who started the race on the front row, had a straightforward drive to second place, whilst fellow guest entrant Matt Parry completed the podium.

Prema Powerteam’s Dennis Olsen took fourth, narrowly beating out Strakka’s Jake Hughes.

Matevos Isaakyan, who finished third in the drivers’ standings, took sixth, right ahead of championship runner-up Charles Leclerc, who held off Koiranen’s George Russell. Denis Korneev and Pietro Fittipaldi rounded out the top ten.
