Swedish racer Felix Rosenqvist made another case for his championship chances in race two at Zandvoort, taking a dominant win to Raffaele Marciello‘s 16th place.
The Mucke racer started the event from pole and kept the race firmly under his control, surviving two early restarts to take the checkered flag.
Prema Powerteam’s Alex Lynn took second, wrestling the spot away from Daniil Kvyat off the line and then confidently bringing the car home. The Carlin driver, who took his first win in the series earlier today, rounded out the podium.
His teammate Jordan King took another fourth-place finish, ahead of Fortec man Pipo Derani. Harry Tincknell also repeated his race one result with sixth, while Sven Muller took seventh.
Tom Blomqvist and Mitchell Gilbert were eighth and ninth respectively, with Alexander Sims closing out the top ten and Nicholas Latifi picking up the final point.
Just like race one, the second event did not turn out incident-free, with multiple collisions disrupting the proceedings. During the opening lap, Antonio Giovinazzi tangled with Eddie Cheever, which forced both to retire out of the race, while, later on, Felix Serralles would find himself stranded in the gravel with another DNF to his name.
Championship leader Marciello had a dreadful time in the race, falling to the back of the field after stalling on the grid. Having failed to score, he now leads Rosenqvist by only 34.5 points.
