“FIA F3: Giovinazzi “wins” rain halted race”

August 2, 2015

Antonio Giovinazzi took his fifth FIA European F3 race win of the season, albeit without running a single lap under anger.

In torrential rain, the race ran three laps under the safety car, before race director Sven Stoppe threw the red flag.

After a delay of seventeen minutes, the race restarted for a single lap, only to be red flagged for the second and final time.

As a result, the final order matched the starting order, with Antonio Giovinazzi “winning” ahead of Felix Rosenqvist and Sérgio Sette Camara.

Also taking points were Markus Pömmer (4th), Lance Stroll (5th), Charles Leclerc (6th), Jake Dennis (7th), Alexander Albon (8th), George Russell (9th) and Callum Ilott (10th). Kang Ling pulled into the pits to retire after two laps, while Julio Moreno spun going through turn six a lap later.
Two laps were completed ensuring half-points were awarded.
