ROUND-UP

Motor Sport News - - German Gp Report -

Sergey Sirotkin over­came a pit­stop penalty to take his sec­ond GP2 win in con­sec­u­tive week­ends at Hock­en­heim. The Rus­sian started from pole but il­le­gally pit­ted un­der a vir­tual safety car. Stew­ards de­cided that this stop wouldn’t count and he would have to pit again, which ap­peared to hand Raf­faele Mar­ciello the ad­van­tage. How­ever, Sirotkin surged through the or­der to claim a dra­matic win. Brit Alex Lynn won the sec­ond race af­ter get­ting the jump on pole­man An­to­nio Giov­inazzi, while Sirotkin again starred as he bat­tled through to sec­ond. That re­sult means the ART driver has now taken the points lead from Pierre Gasly… There was more Bri­tish suc­cess in GP3 as Jake Hughes ( right) and Jack Aitken fin­ished first and sec­ond in the sec­ond race. An­to­nio Fuoco won the opener af­ter pass­ing Nyck de Vries and Alexan­der Al­bon on a vir­tual safety car restart. It was a dis­ap­point­ing week­end for Al­bon who re­tired from the sec­ond race and lost first place in the standings to Charles Le­clerc… The Euro­pean F3 wins were shared be­tween Lance Stroll, George Rus­sell and Joel Eriks­son at Spa. Eriks­son se­cured his maiden win in the fi­nale af­ter pole­man Rus­sell sud­denly stalled – de­spite mak­ing a good ini­tial get­away… Si­mon Pa­ge­naud claimed his fourth Indycar win of the sea­son at MidOhio last week­end af­ter prof­it­ing from a cau­tion pe­riod at two-thirds dis­tance. Al­most all the drivers headed for the pits when Jack Hawksworth crashed and leader Mikhail Aleshin was de­nied his maiden win when he col­lided with Josef New­gar­den as he left his box and had to pit the fol­low­ing lap to change his front wing… Brit Dean Stone­man will have his first Indycar test with the An­dretti Au­tosport team at Watkins Glen later this month…
