Spa: Sprint race results

25 August 2013

It's not been the stellar year than many - including the driver himself - were expecting for ART's James Calado, but finally at Spa he claimed his first win of the 2013 GP2 Series season ahead of Racing Engineering's Julian Leal and MP Motorsport's Adrian Quaife-Hobbs, although he was made to work for it by a car that was clearly a bit of a handful even before tyre degradation kicked in during the concluding laps of the race.

With Rapax's Stefano Coletti plummeting back to 23rd on worn tyres after a flying start and Felipe Nasr finishing only just inside the points after an impressive run from the back of the grid, the championship standings remain essentially unchanged with Coletti still in the lead despite a second consecutive pointless race weekend.
