Monza - Race results (2)

Christian Vietoris seized the lead at the start of the Monza sprint race and held off a strong Fabio Leimer, while Luca Filippi claimed the runners-up spot in the driver's championship.
Racing Engineering's Christian Vietoris got a flying start from third on the grid to claim the lead of the Monza sprint race ahead of Fabio Leimer and polesitter Jules Bianchi.

Luca Filippi survived contact with Charles Pic (who ended up rear-ending Romain Grosjean at the first chicane) to climb to fifth place behind Sam Bird, which - together with the bonus point for the fastest lap - was enough to give Filippi second place in the 2011 GP2 drivers championship.

Nether of the top two teams - Barwa Addax and Dams - had drivers in the points, which means that Addax wins the team championship title.
