Davide Valsecchi clinched his second victory this season, as the italian driver won the race 1 presented in Bahrain.
Valsecchi set the pole position and then drove his car like he had stole it, on the Saturday race. He concluded the race ahead of Luis Razia, while Esteban Gutierrez, who started from second place on the grid, grabbed third position from Max Chilton in the last lap, recovering from a bad tire change that cost him a handful of seconds.
Sepang’s Race 2 winner, James Calado took fifth place ahead of Tom Dillmann who performed a great catch up from his 15th position on the grid. Fabio Leimer took eighth position behind Fabio Onidi, and will therefore start from pole position in Race 2, because of the reversed top 8 regulations.
