Penalties on Saturday were limited to jump-start drive-thrus for Simon Trummer (Rapax) and Daniel Abt (ART). Russian Time's Tom Dillmann joined them at the back when he was forced to pit on lap 7 after sustaining damage to his car, going two laps down in the process, but with Bird also soldiering on to the end after his mid-race problems it was remarkable that all 25 cars made it to the finish of the race in stark contrast to Friday's antics. It seemed that the GP2 field were perhaps rather contrite about the circus show that they had put on the previous day and were determined to show that they could run a clean, professional race which didn't deteriorate into chaos for once; whether that had anything to do with the absence of Cecotto from the field is another matter altogether.
What Monaco definitely did do was solidify Coletti's hold on the GP2 championship lead, especially with the likes of Fabio Leimer and Jolyon Palmer finishing out of the points in both events and Friday race winner Sam Bird also ending up empty-handed on Saturday. Coletti's tally is now up to 120 points with Felipe Nasr his closest competition on 96 points coming out of Monaco, while Bird hangs into third place with 58 points four ahead of Leimer and Calado moves back up into fifth spot ahead of Frijns, Evans and Palmer.
