Rossi wins GP3 race two in Barcelona

“I'm really happy with today's race," Rossi admitted, "We knew after yesterday that it is difficult to pass here so I needed a good start. Luckily, I avoided all of the problems and the start and I just focused on my own race and what I needed to do. I had pace during the race and, after the disappointment yesterday, I wanted to make sure I set the fastest lap for the extra point today. It's a great result to head into the next round.”

Trummer, Renger van der Zande, Luca Cordiero and Miki Monras all received drive-through penalties for failing to slow for yellow flags, and Spaniard Monras' day got worse when he was subsequently penalised for speeding in the pit-lane.

After two solid results, Wickens leads the series going into the next round in Turkey - GP3 does not race in Monaco - with eleven points.

“My goal coming into weekend was to leave with the points lead," the former World Series by Renault revealed, "There are 30 very ambitious drivers out there, and you have to take the points when you can. I got alongside Gutierrez but really didn't want to take risks and opted for the three points instead. It's a fantastic start to my season and great to leave Barcelona at the top of the points.”
