Tim Tramnitz wins in Race 2 at Red Bull Ring

The German, driving for US Racing, won in front of Fornaroli and Bearman. Among the rookies, it was the first victory for Francesco Braschi, sixth in the overall standings.


A race marked by safety cars which have not given much spectacle on track, a solid win for Tim Tramnitz, good in passing Leonardo Fornaroli (Iron Lynx) after the start and excellent in maintaining the leading until the chequered flag. On the third position of the podium, Oliver Bearman (Van Amersfoort Racing) scored important points for the championship after a come-back race from the sixth position. Out of the podium Kirill Smal (Prema Powerteam), who was not able to pass the English driver despite the good rhythm during the race. The Russian kept behind Josuha Durksen (Muecke Motorsport) and Francesco Braschi (Jenzer Motorsport) who scored his first victory among the rookies. Franesco Simonazzi (BVM Racing), Charlie Wurz (Prema Powerteam) second among the rookies, bence Valint (Van Amersfoort Racing) and Lorenzo Patrese (AKM Motorsport) who completed the rookies’ podium. 


Leonardo Fornaroli started from the pole position in race 2, flanked by Tim Tramnitz. It is the German driver who has the better, conquering the leading in turn 3. Joshua Dufek (Van Amersfoort Racing) was forced to enter the pit because of a damage to the front wing and he restarted in the back of the group, while Sebastian Montoya raised the white flag after only one lap with a puncture in the front left tyre. Oliver Bearman (Van Amersfoort Racing), starting from the sixth position, took advantage of the contact between Montoya and Dufek and also his teammate Nikita Bedrin, grabbing the third position. Contact between teammates with Bearman and Bedrin who touch each other. The Russian gets the worst of it with a damaged suspension, while Bearman seems to have no problems with the rear and keeps Kirill Smal (Prema Powerteam) behind him. The Russian Joshua Durksen (BWT Mueke Motorsport) behind them tries to get closer. The safety car enters on track after Hamda Al Qubaisi (Prema Powerteam) goes out and remains stopped.


At the restart the leading positions didn't change, with Tramnitz gaining meters immediately and Fornaroli managing to gain some margin on Bearman, attacked by Smal. Behind them Braschi and Durksen exchanged positions several times in a short time. Once again it's the safety car to be protagonist after a contact that puts out of the games Han Cenyu (Van Amersfoort Racing), Georgios Markogiannis (Cram Motorsport) and Jorge Garciarce (Jenzer Motorsport). And also this time the leading positions don't change, but the green flag lasts only a few meters as Samir Ben (Jenzer Motorsport) and Pietro Armanni (Iron Lynx) make contact before crossing the finish line. The race ended under safety car with Tim Tramnitz returning to victory after two successes at Paul Ricard. Leonardo Fornaroli and Oliver Bearman are also on the podium. Among the rookies was Francesco Braschi ahead of Charlie Wurz and Lorenzo Patrese.
