Dorian Boccolacci claimed his maiden Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 Series victory as he triumphed in race two at Monza on Saturday.

The Frenchman gained revenge on Lando Norris at the start of the race, grabbing the lead from the pole sitter much like Norris had done to Boccolacci earlier in the day in race one, and although the Briton was able to make a pass for the lead by the end of the opening lap, Boccolacci assumed the lead once more on lap two.

Norris was demoted to third by fellow Briton Harrison Scott, with the trio up front pulling away from the rest of the field until a safety car was needed after Will Palmer and Jehan Daruvala collided whilst battling for fifth position.

On the restart, Norris and Scott clashed, allowing Boccolacci to pull ahead, with the two Britons dropping down the order and finishing seventh and thirteenth respectively at the chequered flag.

Max Defourny stayed out of trouble to claim the runners-up spot for R-ace GP despite having run behind the Palmer/Daruvala and Norris/Scott battles, while Sacha Fenestraz denied his Tech 1 Racing team-mate Hugo de Sadeleer the final podium place.

Nikita Troitskiy responded to his race one retirement by claiming fifth for Fortec Motorsports, with Robert Shwartzman finishing sixth ahead of his Josef Kaufmann Racing team-mate Norris.

Nikita Mazepin made it three Russian’s inside the top eight as he took eighth for AVF, while Julien Falchero and Ferdinand Habsburg completed the top ten, the latter claiming the position inside the points on the final tour.
