It was a short-lived & frustrating race for Mike Conway today as the young Briton was hit out of Race 1 at Circuit de Catalunya. Following an aborted first lap, Mike Conway began slowly, taking an inside route to come along side Giorgio Pantano. Unfortunately with no space to take the corner he made contact with the Campos car, which in turn pushed into team-mate Luca Filippi's rear wing.
Filippi, who had made a brilliant start, was unable to avoid the collision & was put into the sand, retiring instantly. Moments later, Mike was caught up by Xandi Negrao, who launched into the back of the Super Nova car, ending their races immediately.
A Safety car encouraged all but the front three to take a trip to the pits, altering the
lead. Timo Glock who had been in front, completed the 39 laps in 2nd position after
young Brazilian Bruno Senna took his first ever GP2 win for Arden International.
Lucas Di Grassi came in 3rd for ART.
Mike Conway said about Race 1: "I got a bad start, came along side Pantano & I held into the corner. But with no room, the cars touched & I went onto the grass. When I got back on track Negrao hit me hard from behind and unfortunately it was race over for me."
