A complicated debut

Montmelò (Barcelona), 9 May -- No points on the board for the two young hopefuls of the Ferrari Driver Academy, taking part in the first round of this year's GP2 and GP3 series at the Catalunya circuit, at the same meeting as the Spanish Formula 1 Grand Prix. In GP2, Jules Bianchi was involved in a collision in yesterday's race and started from the back today, managing to make up no less than ten places, finishing with the twelfth best time. The race was won by Fabio Leimer (Ocean Racing Technology) ahead of Luiz Razia and Pastor Maldonado (Rapax.) It was a particularly unlucky weekend for Mirko Bortolotti in GP3, as he was involved in an accident at the start of Race 2 which meant he had to retire. The Spanish Barwa Addax Team driver had started from row 8, having finished sixteenth in yesterday's first race, which he tackled with a badly bruised right hand as a result of a practice accident, that meant he was not allowed to take part in qualifying. At the flag, the top step of the podium belonged to Art Grand Prix driver, Alexander Rossi, with team-mate Esteban Gutierrez third, while second place went to Lucas Foresti (Carlin.)

The next round for the GP2 drivers takes place in Monaco next weekend, while the GP3 runners will be back on track in Istanbul over the weekend of 30 May.
