Felix Rosenqvist stormed to his sixth FIA European Formula 3 Championship victory of the season and his twenty-first overall, leading from start to finish in race two at Zandvoort.
The Swedish Prema Powerteam had to survive two safety car periods in the early stages of the race to take the victory, holding off the challenge of race one winner Antonio Giovinazzi of Jagonya Ayam with Carlin.
The first safety car was called upon on the first lap when Lance Stroll collided with championship leader Charles Leclerc on the run down to the first corner, breaking the Canadians front and rear right suspensions, leaving him stranded on the grass near the apex of the corner.
Although it appeared Leclerc got away from the incident with Stroll, the Van Amersfoort Racing driver was the cause of the second safety car when the suspension on his car broke, pitching him into the barriers at the high-speed Scheivlak turn. Leclerc was able to extract himself from the car but was taken to the medical centre, before being released with just bruising to the knee.
Rosenqvist was forced to hold off the challenge of Giovinazzi at the final restart before pulling away to take the win by 3.195s, with Jake Dennis completing the podium in third.
Markus Pommer continued his strong day, adding a fourth place for Motopark on top of his podium from race one, while Alexander Albon finished fifth for Signature ahead of George Russell of Carlin.
Sergio Sette Camara secured his second points finish of the season for Motopark in seventh ahead of Mücke Motorsport duo Maximilian Günther and Santino Ferrucci, while Ryan Tveter took his first point of the season in tenth for Jagonya Ayam with Carlin, leading home a foursome of Carlin drivers ahead of Gustavo Menezes, Tatiana Calderon and Callum Ilott.
