Ferrari World Finals: Mancinelli takes Trofeo Pirelli victory at Daytona

Daniel Mancinelli won the second race of Ferrari Challenge's top class at Finali Mondiali at Daytona, while former NASCAR champion Rusty Wallace was handed a mid-race penalty on his racing return.

Mancinelli took victory by 1.4 seconds over Bjorn Grossmann. Cooper MacNeil finished in third place.

Former NASCAR Cup Series champion Rusty Wallace, making his racing comeback after more than 10 years, finished his second race of the weekend in 32nd place.

From 21st starting position on the 36-car grid Wallace initially gained some spots, to run 15th, but then had to serve a drive-through penalty late in the race. On his Ferrari Challenge debut on Friday night Wallace had finished 15th.

Meanwhile, former GP2 champion Fabio Leimer finished his first race of the weekend in seventh place.

In Friday's opening race, Leimer wasn't able to take part after his car experienced technical issues with his fire extinguisher right before the start.
