Antonio Giovinazzi enjoyed his maiden race win in British F3 at Silverstone, taking advantage of his good position on the reversed grid to run away from the opposition.

The Italian was third on the grid, behind two National Class cars, and took the lead on lap one, maintaining it for the entirety of the 16 laps.

Fortec’s William Buller was second again, with Giovinazzi’s teammate Sean Gelael also making an appearance on the podium.

Felix Serralles and Nicholas Latifi enjoyed excellent drives from the lower half of the grid to take fourth and fifth respectively. Jordan King was sixth, ahead of Tatiana Calderon and Felipe Guimaraes, while John Bryant-Meisner and Jann Mardenborough rounded out the top ten.

Ed Jones took his second National Class win, ahead of teammates Roberto La Rocca and Cameron Twynham.
