Mardenborough takes first GP3 win in Germany
20 July 2014 – Jann Mardenborough claimed his maiden GP3 victory during Sunday's second race at Hockenheim.
The Arden driver, whose previous best result in the feeder category was ninth, controlled the reverse-grid race from start to finish, leading home ART's Dino Zamparelli by 3.8 seconds.
After losing further ground to championship leader Alex Lynn in the opening encounter, Koiranen GP's Jimmy Eriksson kept the Carlin driver at bay to complete the podium.
Lynn leapt from eighth to fourth on the opening lap, positioning himself well to capitalise on the bunching at the hairpin.
Marussia's Dean Stoneman took fifth from Status driver Nick Yelloly after his fellow Briton ran wide at Turn 1 in the closing stages, with Arden's Patric Niederhauser seventh.
Marvin Kirchhöfer had been involved in the battle, but while attempting to pass Stoneman at the hairpin, he made contact with Carlin rival Emil Bernstorff and ended both of their races.
The final point of the race went to Status driver Richie Stanaway, who narrowly fended off Hilmer's Riccardo Agostini and the third Arden machine of Robert Vișoiu.
The next round of the GP3 season takes place at the Hungaroring from July 25-27
