Fortec driver Alexander Rossi triumphed during this afternoon’s second race at Paul Ricard, leading home ISR’s Daniel Ricciardo by a comfortable margin of 4.416 seconds. Jean-Eric Vergne fell back to third from his pole position grid slot, but is now just two points behind Robert Wickens in the title race as a result of the latter’s late puncture.
Vergne initially held onto his lead as the race got underway, but a pit-stop on Lap 8 handed the advantage over to a fast starting Rossi. The American then went on to set a string of impressive times before cementing his lead following his customary pit lane visit, while Ricciardo and Vergne fought over second place.
Despite his best efforts during the final few laps, Vergne had to settle for third and was seemingly displeased with the way in which Ricciardo blocked to maintain position. Behind the top three runners, it was Jake Rosenzweig who headed a long train of cars, holding off a host of his rivals in the closing stages of the race. Nick Yelloly performed well yet again, finishing only his fourth race in the series in fifth place.
André Negrão was next up in sixth place, with Albert Costa narrowly behindto salvage something out of a weekend tainted by his Race 1 penalty. Daniel Zampieri, César Ramos and Oli Webber rounded out the top ten, while Wickens ultimately finished 19th.
The final round of the championship takes place at the Circuit de Catalunya in three week's time
