With a good recovery today, after the start from the 8th row, Richelmi crosses the finish line in 8th place acquiring points for the GP2 championship.

Not only that, thanks to the overthrow of the grid, the Monegasque driver will see the start of the "Sprint Race," the race tomorrow without mandatory pit stop, from the front row.

A great start of season for Richelmi who already in the collective test had highlighted the good feeling between the driver and the car of the DAMS team, the current champion.

A good result achieved thanks to a winning team strategy, with a quick pit stop, which has helped the driver in his big comeback.
