After the fantastic 2nd place yesterday in Race 1, in which Stéphane Richelmi has gained valuable points for the GP2 championship with a great performance on track, this morning there was the second and final race of the weekend.

Because of the reverse grid of the first 8 positions, the DAMS driver has started from 7th place in the 4th row. In the confusion of the start Richelmi and Palmer cars collided, causing the loss of various positions for the Monegasque.

The "sprint race" on Sunday doesn't provide for the pit stop and it has a duration of only 21 laps, thus making it very difficult to climb the rankings.

At the finish line, Richelmi is arrived at 19th place, but the English weekend was very positive for the driver who returns home with an excellent 2nd place in a particularly difficult circuit. The next GP2 meeting will be in the Nurburgring circuit in Germany on 6-7 July.
