Razia on top after Silverstone sprint win

Gutiérrez limped across the finish line in fourth place with a broken front wing, and was likely surprised when he was allowed to keep the position after the inevitable post-race stewards inquiry into his collision with Cecotto. Not that Gutiérrez got away with it entirely: he will have a ten-place grid penalty to serve at the next race in Hockenheim in two weeks for causing an avoidable collision, as will his Lotus team mate James Calado who blotted what had been a superb charge through the field from last place on the grid by spinning out after running into Max Chilton on the penultimate lap.

Razia's race win ekes out his lead in the GP2 Series drivers championship to 6pts, with Gutiérrez some way back in third place and James Calado now tied with Max Chilton for fourth place.
