Starting from the 3rd row, Richelmi immediately speeds along the track gaining the 2nd position even if, in the confusion of the first turn, he is due back in 5th place to avoid contact with the other cars.

With a winning strategy, the DAMS driver came into the pits for the mandatory pit stop in the early laps available, so as to maintain the position in the middle part of the race and have a light and performing car in the closing laps when, at the right time, with an extraordinary attack, he has surpassed Leimer and he won the 4th place on the finish line.

Strategy, speed, experience and talent have led Richelmi in the top drivers in the GP2 and always higher in the overall standings of the championship.

Tomorrow at 10.10 am European time (4:10 pm in Singapore) the second race of the weekend will be held.
