2012 GP2 Series Championship Silverstone Update

Yes, Razia now leads the GP2 Championship. He made the most out of Silverstone, 5th place in the feature race and 1st place in the sprint race, while Valsecchi had a weekend to forget. He was penalized and sent to the back of the starting grid due to the infringement of a technical regulation related to the quantity of fuel available after the qualifying session. Still Valsecchi did some damage control by finishing 7th place in the feature race (when he started 25th) and 2nd place in the sprint race.

Mexican Esteban Gutierrez was able to jump to 3rd position in the standings by winning the feature race and well-deserved 4th place in the sprint race. James Calado, Max Chilton and Giedo Van Der Garde failed to gain any points advantage in both races. Full results are here: Silverstone feature race and Silverstone sprint race.
