Barcelona - Race results (1)

Caterham Racing's Giedo van der Garde took the lead in the mandatory mid-race pit stops and held on to claim the win ahead of polesitter, Lotus GP rookie James Calado.
Polesitter James Calado slugged it out with Fabio Leimer off the line for the Barcelona GP2 feature race, but in the end it was Giedo van der Garde who proved to be the more dangerous threat when he leap-frogged them both with an outstanding pit stop strategy.
