Watch as Ilott runs from lights-to-flag in an emphatic home victory to take the FIA Formula 2 Championship lead at Silverstnoe, in the Feature Race.

The Briton’s getaway off the line was textbook, but ultimately, it was his impressive tyre management that proved pivotal in his second victory at this level.

Ilott finished nearly 9s ahead of Renault junior Christian Lundgaard, whose visibility degraded Pirellis prevented him from mounting any form of serious assault on P1.

The top three remained unchanged from Qualifying, as Williams’ reserve Jack Aitken secured his first podium of the season at his home race.
