Romain Grosjean has extended his GP2 championship-leading advantage by winning Saturday afternoon’s Feature Race in Hungary. The DAMS driver headed a French one-two result from compatriot Charles Pic, with pole man Luiz Razia of Brazil completing the podium as former leader Marcus Ericsson received a penalty.
It was Swede Ericsson who seized the lead at the start, blasting ahead of Razia as Luca Filippi’s rocket getaway propelling the Italian to third, only to run wide after going wheel-to-wheel with Grosjean. With Ericsson extending his lead, AirAsia driver Razia was forced into a resolute defending of second place from the eventual winner.
The decisive moment of the afternoon came in the pit lane on Lap 16, with Ericsson receiving a worse stop than Razia and then being dangerously released into the path of the Brazilian; much to the disappointment of the iSport driver, he received a drive-through penalty for the moment.
Behind the top three, championship contender Giedo van der Garde lost crucial points to Grosjean by finishing fourth ahead of the dejected Ericsson, with Filippi and Jules Bianchi next up as Sunday pole-winner Vietoris, Kral and Clos completed the top ten.
It was a short event for both Fairuz Fauzy and Johnny Cecotto, with the Malaysian and Venezuelan getting tangled up at Turn 1. The races of Esteban Gutiérrez and Rodolfo González also ended on the sidelines.
Sunday’s GP2 Sprint Race begins at 10:30am local time (BST +1)
