Hungaroring - Race results (1)

Romain Grosjean took the win in the feature race at the Hungaroring on Saturday afternoon, after beating Luiz Razia in the pits and then seeing Marcus Ericsson served with a penalty.
Fortune smiled on Dams' Romain Grosjean in Hungary, after a poor start for Luca Filippi allowed him to quickly move into third place, then a perfect midrace pit stop for Grosjean allowed him to move up to second place ahead of Charles Pic and Luiz Razia.

Finally a drive-thru penalty for longtime race leader Marcus Ericsson (for unsafe release in the pits) eliminated the last remaining obstacle for Grosjean, who maintained a comfortable lead from there until the chequered flag to claim a crucial victory in the Hungaroring feature race in Budapest that gives him a firm hold on the 2011 GP2 championship.
