Indonesia’s Rio Haryanto has claimed victory in the Sunday morning GP3 race at the Hungaroring. The Manor driver, who started from ninth on the grid, enjoyed his second win in a rain-affected event, with new championship leader Valtteri Bottas and Britain’s James Calado joining him on the podium.
It was The Netherlands’ Nigel Melker who set off from pole position, leading the pack from Frenchman Tom Dillmann as Lewis Williamson and Nico Müller battled for third. At the tail end of the field, Calado progressed to his stunning eventual third place from 25th on the grid.
The order was shaken up on Lap 2 as Scotland’s Williamson span out of the action, with that and a crash for Vittorio Ghirelli resulting in the first of two Safety Cars; at the restart, Haryanto got the best of Müller to seize third. The Safety Car was back out as Thomas Hylkema crashed on Lap 12, destroying Melker’s leading advantage of 7.9 seconds.
At the restart, Haryanto led for the first time by overhauling Melker, who had dropped to fourth by the end of the lap as Bottas and Dillmann also went through. In sight of the chequered flag, Calado’s final efforts saw passes on Dillmann and Müller to move up onto the rostrum, with long-time leader Melker coming home fourth.
It was a nightmare weekend for former championship leader Alexander Sims; after rising from 11th to fourth yesterday before being the disqualified, today’s result of tenth means no points for the weekend. Bottas now heads the standings, with Sims seven points in arrears.
GP3 continues at Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium in four weeks’ time
