Sepang - Race results (1)

Luiz Razia got a dream start to the Saturday feature race which translated into a perfect start to the season for Arden, their first win in GP2 in two years.
Luiz Razia's quick getaway from the line at the start of the first GP2 feature race of the season at Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia was enough to see him cruise away to an unchallenged race victory ahead of polesitter Davide Valsecchi and Carlin's Max Chilton.

It's Arden's first success in GP2 since Charles Pic won for them in Spain at the start of the 2010 season, and Razia's first race win since the Italian sprint race at Monza in 2009.
