Daniel Ticktum started from pole in saturday’s Race 1 and converted the best starting position into maiden victory. He won ahead of Sacha Fenestraz (Josef Kaufmann Racing) and fellow Red Bull Junior Team driver Neil Verhagen (MP Motorsport).
Sacha Fenestraz and Gabriel Aubry started from the front row in Race 2, ahead of Will Palmer and Max Defourny in the row 2. In the opening lap, Aubry and Palmer overtook Fenestraz. Such an order remained the same until the end of the race, with Aubry’s built an advantage of 4.710 seconds over Palmer.
For the Race 3, Aubry secured a pole position ahead of Sacha Fenestraz and Robert Shwartzman. Aubry defended his lead on the start, losing it on Lap 4 to Sacha Fenestraz. However, Fenestraz earned 10sec penalty because of false start, so he dropped to P8 at the end of the race. Aubry took his second win in a row, ahead of Robert Shwartzman and Max Defourny.
After five rounds and eleven races, Will Palmer is still in a lead with 174 points on his account, five more than Robert Shwartzman. Sacha Fenestraz (152 points) is third, Gabriel Aubry (114 points) progressed to the fourth place.
