Re-live all of the action as Nikita Mazepin won an incredible FIA Formula 2 Feature Race in Mugello, his second victory of the season. The Russian rose from P14 to beat teammate Luca Ghiotto, who finished second on home soil, ahead of Charouz Racing System’s Louis Delétraz.
The race was turned on its head by the Safety Car as Giuliano Alesi’s stricken HWA RACELAB machine was recovered from the gravel trap. Mazepin was gifted a golden opportunity for victory on the alternate strategy. The Russian driver found himself in third place after the Safety Car with fresh soft tyres.
The Hitech racer made light work of passing long-time race leaders Christian Lundgaard and Ghiotto, who were both on heavily degraded hard tyres. Ghiotto was able to cling on to second ahead of Delétraz, but poleman Lundgaard plummeted to sixth having dominated most of the race.
