Christian Lundgaard officially finished the race in second place but was imposed a 10-second time penalty for making contact with Lirim Zendeli. However, that penalty is now lifted.

“Lundgaard server his time penalty in the latter stages of the race, and with much happening in the pitlane and on the track, the FIA needed time to confirm whether the Dane had taken his time penalty in a proper manner,” said the championship organizers.

“The confirmation came after the podium ceremony, and since the ART driver served it correctly, his P2 result was reinstated.”

With Lundgaard’s promotion, UNI Virtuosi’s Guanyu Zhou has been moved to third place, with Carlin’s Jehan Daruvala pushed out of the podium to fourth place.
