GP3 Valencia 2013: Race results

17 June 2013

The GP3 Series was at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo in Valencia, Spain for an unusual stand-alone round of the championship which meant that there were no associated F1 or GP2 races taking place.

On Saturday, ART's Conor Daly took a maiden GP3 pole position for race 1 with a time of 1:22.329s in qualifying. Marussia Manor Racing's Ryan Cullen spun into the turn 1 gravel early in the session which caused a brief red flag and meant he failed to set a time, making his five-place grid penalty held over Barcelona moot. Patrick Kujala was handed a ten-place grid penalty for overtaking under the red flags that were out for Adderly Fong stopping near the end of the session, while Nick Yelloly and Lewis Williamson both had their times excluded after their cars failed post-qualifying technical inspection, sending them both to the back of the grid as well.

In race 1, Daly led from lights to flag and was followed home to the line by his ART team mate Facu Regalia, while Koiranen GP rookie Kevin Korjus claimed the remaining podium spot. Robert Visoiu managed to beat Dino Zamparelli for eighth place, putting the Romanian into pole on the reverse grid for race 2 which he converted to his first win in the series ahead of Aaro Vainio and Tio Ellinas, who keeps the championship lead after rival Patric Niederhauser ended the day with an early retirement.
