Watch as Guanyu Zhou finally clinched his first FIA Formula 2 race, in the Sochi Sprint Race. Although, it wasn’t how he would have imagined it, as the Race ended early after a collision between Luca Ghiotto and Jack Aitken.
The duo crashed at Turn 3 on Lap 7 and ended up deep in the barriers. Both drivers walked away safely, but the scale of repairs needed meant that the decision was taken not to restart the race. With more than 25% of the 21 lap race left to run, only half points are awarded to the grid, leaving Zhou with a sense of frustration after a dominant start to the race.
Nikita Mazepin secured his fifth podium of the season at his home event, taking second, while Mick Schumacher claimed his 10th rostrum this year to further enhance his position at the top of the Drivers’ Championship.
