Lynn claims lights-to-flag Macau win
|2.||A. Felix da Costa||+1.173|
17 November 2013 – Alex Lynn conducted a lights-to-flag victory in Sunday's Macau Grand Prix. The Prema Powerteam driver, who started from pole position, led home Carlin rival António Félix da Costa by just over a second, while Fortec's Pipo Derani completed the podium.
When the action began, Lynn made a lightning start to fend off his rivals on the run down to the first braking zone at Lisboa. The Briton then mastered a Safety Car period to retain his lead ahead of the recovering Félix da Costa, who initially dropped to sixth.
Félix da Costa – the winner of last year's race – did his best to apply pressure on Lynn in the closing laps, but the latter held on to take a career-boosting win. Marciello had been in line for a podium, but crashed with five laps left to gift Derani the position.
Alexander Sims was next up, while Jordan King set the fastest lap of the weekend en route to fifth. Jazeman Jaafar and Carlos Sainz Jr. were lonely in their battle for sixth, ahead of final top ten finishers Tom Blomqvist, Nicholas Latifi and Esteban Ocon.
Officials deployed the Safety Car for John Bryant-Meisner's crash at Mandarin, with Sean Gelael and Lucas Auer also getting caught up in the drama. Felix Rosenqvist was another first lap victim, while Stefano Coletti got nudged out at the halfway mark.
