Nurburgring - Race results (2)

Romain Grosjean took the lead of the Nurburgring sprint race with one lap to go, as the entire field struggled with cold and damp conditions on Sunday morning.
Changing conditions at the Nurburgring caught out many drivers during a wet, time-limited sprint race on a cold and grey Sunday morning.

After leading for most of the race, a mistake by Jules Bianchi at the final chicane on the penultimate lap gave Romain Grossjean the opportunity to take the lead and go on to win the race.

Grosjean's win makes this an excellent weekend for his GP2 title campaign as he outscored all his potential rivals and stretched his lead in the series championship points.
