Harrison Scott made it three different winners in three races at Monza as he became the second driver in as many races to secure his maiden Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 Series victory on Sunday.

The British driver also gave Adrian Vallés’ AVF squad their first victory in the championship, with Scott taking the lead from polesitter Dorian Boccolacci on the opening lap, who dropped to fourth behind the fast starting Hugo de Sadeleer and Lando Norris.

Unfortunately for de Sadeleer, that was as good as it got, and from running second he was soon down to fourth after both Norris and his Tech 1 Racing team-mate Boccolacci overtook the Swiss driver just prior to a safety car period.

The safety car was called upon when Nikita Troitskiy and Nikita Mazepin clashed on the start/finish straight, with both drivers eliminated from the race as a result.

Scott had been almost two seconds clear of the chasing pack when the safety car was called, and it was not long before he had reassumed that gap when the field were released once more.

Norris and Boccolacci closed the gap down once more over the closing laps, but neither driver were able to deny Scott his maiden triumph, with the trio being separated by just 0.955 seconds at the chequered flag.

Max Defourny secured fourth for R-ace GP ahead of Tech 1 Racing’s Gabriel Aubry, who secured his first points of what otherwise was a disappointing weekend for the Frenchman.

Robert Shwartzman was battling Boccolacci for the podium finish before dropping to sixth at the flag, with Will Palmer seventh ahead of Sacha Fenestraz, Alexey Korneev and Henrique Chaves, with the last two switching places on the final lap.

As for de Sadeleer, his chances of points ended when he ran off track at the second chicane just after the safety car restart, finishing down in thirteenth.
