Alex Lynn has won the second race at the FIA F3 European Championship at the Norisring for Prema Powerteam.

Getting to the first corner ahead of Raffaele Marciello, his team mate, the Brit rarely looked troubled after that taking a dominating victory with Marciello recovering from a low of fifth to take second place.

Third place was Alex Sims who took a maiden podium for his team ThreeBond with T-Sport, however he was stuck in a battle with Marciello and Felix Rosenqvist for second place allowing Lynn to take off down the road.

Lynn said: “My start was very good and in the Grundig hairpin, I took the lead right away. Then, I tried to pull a gap over Felix Rosenqvist behind me, but that wasn’t easy. When Alexander Sims started to fight with Felix, I was able to extend my lead. That was good, because the first cars were there to be lapped just after that.”

Rosenqvist could yet still be given second – this weekend he is racing under appeal due to a dispute surrounding an irregularity in a few sample given by his team – Mücke Motorsport, if he is classified later then it will mean Sims will lose his podium finish.

There were battles a touch further down the order as well with Luis Felipe Derani and Félix Serrallés battling for fourth place – that eventually went to Fortec driver Derani.

Rounding out the top ten were Tom Blomqvist – who had his win taken off him after the penalties were overturnedHarry Tincknell, Jordan King, Michael Lewis and Nick Cassidy racing for Eurointernational.

Race three takes place tomorrow at 10:00 with Raffaele Marciello starting on pole due to his pole position in Qualifying Three on Friday.
