Luca Filippi managed to jump polesitter Charles Pic during the mandatory round of pit stops, and once in front he was able to pull out a lead of over five seconds before claiming Scuderia Coloni's first win of the year in his d?but race for them, and on his 100th GP2 Series appearance in the feature race at the Nurburgring.

Romain Grosjean recovered from an early set-back to beat Jules Bianchi for third place, and his main GP2 title rivals Giedo van der Garde and Sam Bird both finished behind him in sixth and eighth place respectively meaning that he extends his points lead over them.
