A second for Sørensen
Having driven a superb race, Kevin Magnussen (Carlin) seemed on course to claim his second win of the season in the Formula Renault 3.5 Series. However, on the final lap, the Dane was forced to stop his car following a gearbox oil leak. This allowed Antonio Felix da Costa (Arden) to grab victory for the first time in the competition.

Lotus' Marco Sørensen finished second and Will Stevens (Carlin) came third to complete an all-rookie podium.

Marco Sørensen: “I’ve had my share of bad luck, particularly at Silverstone, where a puncture cost me the victory. So I’m happy to be back on the podium. We weren’t quite up to scratch in qualifying this weekend. We’ll have to work on that aspect to have a hope of winning one of the remaining races.”
