Abu Dhabi - Race results (2)

Davide Valsecchi claimed the final race win of GP2's 2010 season at Abu Dhabi, his first series victory in two years.
Davide Valsecchi was quick to take advantage of a poor start by the polesitter, Super Nova driver Josef Kral, and went from fourth on the grid into the lead at turn 1 after fighting off Luiz Razia and Romain Grosjean. Valsecchi also had to fend off a strong mid-race challenge from second-placed Razia.

Feature race winner Sergio Perez went out after colliding with Sam Bird early in the race, while GP2 champion Pastor Maldonado once again failed to score - for the sixth consecutive outing.

Giedo van der Garde - who will test this week for Virgin F1 - had an eventful race, attracting no fewer than three pit lane drive-thru penalties during the 22 laps.
