Fairuz Fauzy converted pole position into victory in the wet sprint race at Sentul. But he was helped by the fact that so few laps were completed at race speed. Little had apparently been done to correct the numerous embarrassing organisational problems evident in yesterday’s race – cars were left in gravel traps for laps … Continue reading Fauzy wins another shambolic race at Sentul
Just watched the first GP2 Asia race from Sentul – it verged on farce at times but the closing stages were pure drama. Luca Filippi won from Sebastien Buemi, but they were so absorbed on their battle they completed an extra lap, which leaves me wondering if they might be disqualified. The GP2 Asia cars … Continue reading Luca Filippi wins bizarre Sentul GP2 Asia race

With rival Lucas di Grassi finishing … Continue reading GP2 Spa-Francorchamps sprint: Chandhok wins for Durango
Nicolas Lapierre cruised to victory in the GP2 race at Spa-Francorchamps in a manner that made you wonder why he hasn’t been doing it all year. In the fight for the championship Lucas di Grassi finished third but title rival Timo Glock was 17th after yet more reliability problems for iSport.

Timo Glock took the lead of the GP2 championship back off Lucas di Grassi with an untroubled win the sprint race at Istanbul. Having won yesterday’s feature race di Grassi failed to score after picking up a drive-through penalty in the sprint event.
Timo Glock ended his run of poor results and became the first driver this year to win two races with a consummate drive in front of his home crowd. Glock was beaten into the lead by Lucas di Grassi but easily took the lead later in the race and won with a comfortable margin. It … Continue reading GP2 Nurburgring feature: Home win for Glock

Giorgio Pantano became the sixth driver to win in as many races after a fraught encounter at Magny-Cours.

While Lewis Hamilton was writing a new page of motor racing history at Montreal, Silverstone was in thrall to a driver with a great name from F1’s past. Ayrton Senna’s nephew Bruno attended the Challenge Trofeo Pirelli European event as a one-off and won both rounds. Admittedly, this was not against the same kind of … Continue reading Bruno Senna wins at Silverstone in a Ferrari
Timo Glock took the GP2 victory he’s been threatening all year by scorching through to first from eighth at Barcelona. He became the fourth different driver to win in the first four rounds of GP2. Behind him Javier Villa impressively kept pace with the leaders to hold second.
