The Mercedes backed Brit needed to outscore his title rival and teammate, Jack Aitken, by 4 points. Finishing in fourth, two places ahead, along with the fastest lap of the race seen him comfortably take it with another round still to go. He pulled of another brilliant move on Aitken before putting Fukuzumi between them and cruising toward the flag. A late safety car, owing to Niko Kari forcing Dan Ticktum off the track, meant there was a last lap shoot out but he managed to hang on his position and wrap it up. Alessio Lorandi won the race ahead of Boccolacci and Hubert, who was promoted to the podium following Kari's 10 second penalty for the incident #GP3 #ART #Mercedes #Jerez

    • Can see him replacing Ocon at Force India when its Ocon's turn to step up. He has mentioned that he would like to be in an F2 team with Lando Norris next year! Quite the line up!
