Mitch Evans stole victory from Arthur Pic on the final lap following a race long battle for the win of this morning’s sprint race in Monza: the New Zealander broke his rival’s heart with a clinical move inside at the Rettifilo chicane with the Frenchman having to make do with holding off the Series leader Stoffel Vandoorne at the line.
American passes Vandoorne for win in feature race
Alexander Rossi came to Monza this weekend to peg back Stoffel Vandoorne’s lead in the drivers’ championship, and this afternoon he did just that: the American trailed the McLaren test driver for lap after lap before blasting past on lap 23 en route to a storming victory in today’s feature race from Vandoorne and Mitch Evans.

Pierre Gasly has opened his Monza weekend in fine style by taking the top spot in this morning’s free practice session at the fabled Italian circuit: the Frenchman stopped the clock at 1:31.669 early in the session for a time which went unanswered by his rivals, with Alexander Rossi and Rio Haryanto the closest to his best lap.
Presentation of the eighth round of the 2015 season
“This is my favourite round of the year because it is my home race. It’s a very fast track with low downforce. It is quite tricky to find grip. You need to be really good in finding the limits of the car, but it’s quite difficult there. There are fast corners and a challenging first chicane. It’s not an easy layout.
Belgian wins in strategic GP2 feature race
Stoffel Vandoorne delighted the local fans by claiming an emotional feature race win today at Spa Francorchamps, leading from pole position despite a red flag for the dramatic crash by Daniel de Jong throwing everyone’s strategies into the air, with Arthur Pic and Artem Markelov joining the McLaren tester on the podium as a result.
