Lirim Zendeli took his second double in two events with a victory in the second ADAC Formula 4 race at Hockenheim.

The pole-sitter was forced to defend the race lead from Liam Lawson on the opening lap, with the pair running side by side through a number of corners before the safety car was brought out for a collision between Enzo Fittipaldi and Leonardo Lorandi.

Zendeli made a good get away on the restart and managed to pull away from Lawson. He eventually finished three seconds ahead of the rest of the field.

Lawson was forced to defend against team-mate Frederik Vesti in the closing stages of the race. Vesti pushed hard but couldn?t quite get alongside Lawson and had to settle for third, his second podium of the season.

Charles Weerts spent most of the race defending fourth from a gaggle of cars behind him. Wishofer managed to pull alongside him, but couldn?t make a move stick, allowing David Schumacher, Jack Doohan, and Joey Alders to catch them.

Weerts managed to hold onto the position to take fourth while Wishofer dropped backwards late in the race.

Schumacher struggled to attack and defend at the same time and turned his focus to keeping Doohan behind him. The pair ran side by side and Schumacher was pushed wide, which allowed Alders through to claim P5.

Doohan took sixth, ahead of Wishofer, Niklas Krutten and Schumacher.

Tom Beckhauser completed the top 10.
