Jann Mardenborough was able to hold the pression and convert his 8th place “pole” in victori in German Grand Prix short race, in Hockenheimring. Not that much of fight on track despite position changes in first turns. Kirchhöfer made a bad actuation in the first laps and despite having won yesterday he had to retire.
Mardenborough maintained lead in the start without giving any opportunity to Zamparelli, who overtook for second place Eriksson, now third. Great start from Alex Lynn who quickly was fourth trying to overtake his rival in the championship.
In the third braking zone, Varhaug touched Balthasar. The first was obligated to retire and made three laps of yellow flag while the young Hilmer driver was able to continue from last position. Bernstorff and Kirchhöfer were also to retire as a cause to a touch between both that would be investigated. Despite having won the first race, ART driver did not make a good start and could not maintain until chequered flag.
Alex Lynn would try to overtake Eriksson, but was impossible for him and Swedish ran away for Zamparelly, without exit neither. Who was able to make overtake was Stoneman. He overtook Yelloly achieving fifth position.
Mardenborough widened the lead and arrived to the finish with almost four seconds of advantage over Zamparelli. First victory this season for Arden driver, who was able to maintain in the lead when he had to.
