Dennis takes maiden win, ART secures title
3 September 2016 – Jake Dennis secured his maiden GP3 Series victory as he led home Arden team-mate Jack Aitken for a 1-2 finish, as ART Grand Prix wrapped up the Teams' title.
Dennis dived up the inside of pole-man Charles Leclerc into the Rettifilo chicane on lap four and quickly opened up a gap over Aitken, who also quickly passed the Ferrari protégé.
Leclerc spent the remainder of the race on the defensive, fending off Trident's Antonio Fuoco, with the pair making contact at the Roggia chicane.
Leclerc held back Fuoco but was unable to repel Jake Hughes, who surged forward from the foot of the top 10 to finish third, narrowly behind Aitken.
Leclerc took fourth, ahead of ART team-mates Nirei Fukuzumi, Alexander Albon and Nyck de Vries, with the French team romping to the title.
Fuoco slipped back to eighth while Matt Parry and Tatiana Calderón completed the top 10.
GP3's second race of the weekend at Monza begins at 09:15 local time on Sunday
