Despite crossing the line second, David Beckmann was victorious in the second FIA Formula 3 race of the weekend after Bent Viscaal was given two five-second time penalties.
The first came when he collided with Igor Fraga as the Brazilian tried to rejoin the road early on with the second a little more clear-cut as he overtook Logan Sargeant off the track at turn three.
It was a real punch to the gut for Viscaal who had a massive six-second lead with three laps to go and was still on course to get a podium until Federico Malvestiti found the wall and brought out the safety car, wiping out his margin.
Oscar Piastri was looking rapid behind Beckmann with the fastest lap and could have got passed the German had the safety car not been deployed.
The cork in the bottle for so long was Dennis Hauger who was able to hold off Sargeant and Richard Verschoor to claim his first podium in F3.
Race one winner Théo Pourchaire had a quiet race to finish sixth ahead of his ART teammates Aleksandr Smolyar – from twenty-seventh on the grid – and Sebastián Fernández.
Enzo Fittipaldi drove well to climb ten places to ninth with Alex Peroni the lucky dog to take tenth and the final point as Viscaal dropped to seventeenth
