Race 1:
Nicolas Lapierre: retired
Kazuki Nakajima: 2nd

Kazuki Nakajima did a very good feature race. An early pit stop would have allowed him to lead the race but an accident put the safety car on the track on lap 13. He nevertheless scored an impressive second place when crossing the chequered flag.

Nicolas Lapierre finished his race on lap 8 because of his contact with another car. His bended suspension left him stopped on the track.

Kazuki Nakajima: "I didn't expect to be on the podium so the second place is a really good result for me and for the team. It's incredible to score five podiums in a row. I could have won the race if I didn't have a slow car in front of me during the safety car, but I'm still happy with my second place."

Race 2:
Nicolas Lapierre: 14th
Kazuki Nakajima: retired

The second race of the week-end was frustrating. Due to his early abandon in the first race, Nicolas was starting in 24th position. He drove superbly during the entire race and was the fastest man of the day until the last minute, when he lost the best lap time for less than 2 hundredths.

After having fought back and tried to grab some places through the field, Kazuki had to stop his race with a bended wishbone after a contact with another concurrent.
