Theo Pourchaire has won a dramatic Formula 2 Feature Race at the Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari.

The racing action at Imola on Sunday continued with an intense F2 Feature Race.

Roy Nissany had a brilliant getaway – the DAMS driver went from P6 to P`1 before turn 1. At the same time, Jack Doohan and Dennis Hauger had a contact. The Virtuosi Racing driver also hit Juri Vips, but the Estonian avoided damage.

Doohan and Hauger both had terminal damage and retired from the race. The Safety Car was deployed.

The race restarted on lap 5. Nissany stayed in front, while Ralph Boschung and Ayumu Iwasa followed him.

Vips’ race went from bad to even worse. He went off the track, spun, and hit a barrier. The Safety Car was back on the race track. A lot of drivers made a mandatory pit stop. Jehan Daruvala inherited the lead.

Daruvala remained the leader at the restart. Marcus Armstrong and Liam Lawson were right behind. The PREMA driver made a considerable gap from the opponents. At the same time, the drivers who pitted were not able to make a charge through the field.

A race that was a big opportunity turned into a nightmare for Nissany. He went wide at the exit of Rivazza 2 and hit a barrier. The race was over for him. The Virtual Safety Car was deployed, but the pit lane entry was closed at the same time.

Theo Pourchaire became the highest-placed driver that pitted.

Amaury Cordeel was given a 5-second time penalty for track limits violations. Later on, he got a 10-second time penalty for the same reason.

Logan Sargeant and Boschung were fighting for the 5th place that was virtually 2nd. The Carlin driver made the move on lap 31. Shortly after, Enzo Fittipaldi started putting pressure on Boschung. However, Sargeant went wide and let both opponents pass. After that, he dropped down to 9th. At the same moment, Fittipaldi passed Boschung.

Lawson had a big shunt that ended his race prematurely. The Safety Car was deployed, which was a big chance for Felipe Drugovich and Marino Sato as they had not stopped. However, they both went to the pits too late and lost a bunch of positions. Pourchaire got to the race lead.

Cordeel had his third penalty of the race – a 10-second stop-and-go penalty for speeding in the pit lane.

The race ended under the Safety Car conditions. Pourchaire took the checkered flag. Fittipaldi took his maiden Formula 2 podium, while Boschung completed the top 3.
