Great Britain's Adam Carroll finished 12th after starting from 17th on the grid. He was destined for a top ten finish before being hit on the final lap. After crashing heavily in yesterday's GP2 feature race it was a race against time to get the car prepared for this morning's GP2 sprint race -- it also meant Adam had to start towards the back of the grid. But he wasted no time in cutting his way through the pack.

The safety car was deployed after Luca Di Grassi hit the stalled car of Adrian Valles on the grid, then another on track incident meant that Adam could capitalize on the chaos, moving up to 11th .

"The start and my re-start were really good but it was very difficult to attack out there. There were a lot of cars backed up but I just couldn't get passed. I couldn't believe it when I was hit by Jose Maria Lopez on the last lap, I'd worked through the field and been sitting in 10th. He hit the wheel, my side and broke my steering too."

After spending the majority of the race in 10th position struck in traffic, he eventually finished the 25 lap race 12th.

The next round of the GP2 championship is at Nurburgring in two weeks time. Last year Adam entertained the F1 crowd by working his way from 22nd to 2nd. Let's hope for more of the same this year!
