After failing to convert either of his two Spa poles to wins, Jason Kremer managed to snatch up the reverse-grid race victory, rewarding himself and Schiller Motorsport with the first triumph of the season.
Having started from fifth, Kremer worked his way up to the top, helped by fighting and incidents throughout the field. He took the lead on lap four out of the eventual ten and didn’t give it up until the checkered flag.
Mikkel Jensen,?after not scoring in round one, completed a stellar weekend with his maiden podium in ADAC Formel Masters. Ralph Boschung also managed the same feat, the Formula BMW Talent Cup graduate taking third after starting in 12th place.
Nicolas Beer continued to shine with consistency, taking fourth that ensured that he hasn’t finished lower than that in the six races so far. Indy Dontje took fifth, ahead of Maximilian Gunther?and Hendrik Grapp. Beitske Visser was only eighth, with Stephane Kox and polesitter Callan O’Keeffe rounding out the points.
Stephan Riener, having originally finished sixth, found himself disqualified for passing under yellows twice. Florian Herzog was denied points by a 30-second penalty. Championship leader Alessio Picariello found himself out of the race after a collision with O’Keeffe. Despite that, he still enjoys a solid lead over Beer, Kremer and Gunther.
