Yuki Tsunoda took another win this season, followed by Guanyu Zhou, who managed to stay on the podium with a great synth on the soft and despite a 5-second penalty for accelerating in boxing. Nikita Mazepin found himself on the last step of the podium, after a great fight with Felipe Drugovich.
Robert Schwartzman came in fifth, while Callum Ilott, second in the championship, came in sixth. However, Mick Schumacher reached the seventh position with a long first stint and a great stint on the soft and took another step towards winning the title. Jehan Daruvala, Dan Ticktum and Pedro Piquet closed the circle of ten.
Like last weekend, Mazepin had a bad start, but by entering the first turn, he still managed to reach the leading position from the inside. Tsunoda had a good start, but still fell to third place behind Schwartzman. The biggest loser at the start was Christian Lundagaard who fell to 21st place.
The biggest fight was in the middle of the standings between Deletraz, Sat, Boschung and Alesi and Schumacher, who almost had contact on the plane after turn 3. Later, Tsunoda approached Schwartzman, who managed to move to second position in the 13th lap, while Ticktum passed. Ilotta who fell to ninth place. A lap later, the fight for points was joined by the leader in the championship.
In the 15th lap, the leaders started entering the pits to change their tires, and Daruvala, Mazepin and Švarcman were the first. Schumacher passed Armstrong in the 16th lap and found himself behind Ilott, but the Briton started to struggle with the tires and went to the pits for the hard component on which the German started.
Mazepin, Tsunoda and Schwartzman, after replacing the tires, found themselves in a fight for a potential podium split. The Japanese found himself in front of the duo, but due to problems with warming up the tires, he eventually ended up behind both of them. Although Ilott got rid of the soft tires, he got stuck on the hardest component from Carlin Jehan Daruvala, but in the middle of the race he managed to get ahead.
Schumacher entered the pits in the 30th lap and took the softest tire component and returned to the track behind Ticktum in 13th position. Tsunoda finally found the pace and got completely close to Schwartzman and managed to pass him for the second position. Four laps to go we saw a great fight to win. Tsunoda approached Mazepa and managed to pass him on the finish line, despite a very solid Russian defense. Entering the first turn, Mazepin blocked the wheels, giving Zhou and Drugovich a chance, who passed in front.
But the Russian did not give up and managed to pass the Brazilian in the penultimate round. Drugovich had a DRS and tried to regain third position, but Mazepin showed his teeth again and on the finish line forced the Brazilian all the way to the wall that separates the pits and the track, while in the second DRS call Drugovich went off the track and picked up the sign that was there. . Schumacher passed Daruval in the last lap and finished the race in seventh place with just two seconds behind Ilotto.
Tomorrow’s sprint race will give us a new F2 champion scheduled for 13:20 our time!
After the race, the judges issued a notice that Yuki Tsunoda was under investigation for potential overtaking off the track that was in the first turn.
