Doohan beats Hauger on drying track to claim first series win

MP Motorsport’s Caio Collet finished third to take his second podium of the year, beating teammate and Alpine Academy driver Victor Martins to third, despite the latter having started there.

Trident’s Clement Novalak finished fifth, with polesitter Frederik Vesti (ART Grand Prix) ending up in sixth.

Hitech Grand Prix’s Ayuma Iwasa finished in seventh, with ART Grand Prix’s Alexander Smolyar, who won Saturday’s first sprint race, rounding off the points finishes.
