Hungary: Feature race results

Jolyon Palmer fought his way to his first win of the season, while DAMS' Marcus Ericsson was able to hold off Felipe Nasr to thwart a Carlin one-two.
A poor start for pole sitter Tom Dillmann opened the door for Felipe Nasr to fly into the lead, but in the end it was his Carlin team mate Jolyon Palmer who executed a better pit stop and tyre strategy to claim victory in the feature race at the Hungaroring on Saturday.

The battle for the effective lead between Palmer and DAMS' Marcus Ericsson lasted for more than ten laps and was a highlight of the season to date, but it was nearly matched by the sustained defence Ericsson then had to pull out of his hat to stop Nasr from also getting past in the closing laps to make it a Carlin one-two.

Some of that battle attracted the scrutiny of the race stewards, who declared Ericsson and Nasr under post-race investigation for exceeding track limits.
