Monaco - Race results (1)

27 May 2011

The experienced Davide Valsecchi was a safe pair of hands to deliver AirAsia a maiden GP2 win in their first season in the series in the Monaco feature race.

He succeeded in holding off Alvarao Parente to the flag, while Luca Filippi and Romain Grosjean used impressive pit stop strategies to recover from poor grid positions.

But it was a bad day for iSport - again - as their cars clashed on track for the second day running and retired.

Oliver Turvey had expected to start the sprint race on the front row after finishing seventh, but he had failed to serve a drive-thru penalty for a jump start and was demoted to 15th.

Full race report available.
