Imola - Race results (2) - Updated

A first-lap accident put Jules Bianchi out of the final GP2 Asia sprint race of the season and gave Romain Grosjean his second series championship, while Dani Clos sped to the race win.
The start of the GP2 Asia sprint race of 2011 at Imola saw a great getaway from Dani Clos off the front of the grid to win the race, leading Fabio Leimer and Giedo van der Garde. A first lap crash for Jules Bianchi meant that Romain Grosjean was immediately assured of the 2011 GP2 Asia championship despite being penalised for cutting a chicane.
