Nonetheless, Carbone would not let it affect his concentration as the top three remained as they were. Interestingly, the result marks a 1-2-3 result for British teams in the order of Ultimate Motorsport, Fortec Motorsport and P1 Motorsport.
"The car is perfect since Hungary," Carbone commented, "I made a mistake in the SuperPole, I could have done better, but I took the lead at the first corner, then I just drove. This win will have an important effect on the rest of the season."
Guerrieri made it a great day for Ultimate as they surge up into team title contention, while fifth place fell to Mikhail Aleshin following a very quiet race. There was further action involving Duran though, as he tagged Baguette on the last lap, causing the Belgian to lose time. Duran would eventually snare sixth, with Interwetten team-mate Sanchez eighth, sandwiching an embittered Baguette in seventh.
"I was lucky at the start," points leader van der Garde admitted, "Pic came up on my left, then there were cars going everywhere. I put the car in neutral and managed to avoid them. The car was running very well and things took care of themselves - Jousse made a mistake, Duran made a mistake, Guerrieri made a mistake…"
Pippa Mann was rewarded for keeping her car pointing in the right direction when many others couldn't for her best ever World Series result in ninth, while Claudio Cantelli claimed his maiden point in tenth.
In the overall standings, van der Garde has stretched his lead out to an almost unassailable 50 points, with Jousse hanging onto second, albeit by just a single point over the in-form Carbone.
