Full Formula 2 feature race results from Silverstone

Luca Ghiotto has claimed his maiden Formula 2 feature victory after seeing off Nicholas Latifi at Silverstone, with championship leader Nyck de Vries fading late on to sixth place.

Ghiotto produced the perfect getaway to take the lead from pole-sitting UNI-Virtuosi Racing teammate Guanyu Zhou as Latifi also gained a place at the start to take third off of DAMS teammate Sergio Sette Camara.

With Latifi pitting a lap earlier than the leader, the Williams Formula 1 reserve driver used his up to temperature tyres to power past the Italian at Brooklands with Ghiotto struggling for grip on cold rubber.

The pair also survived contact at Copse corner battling for the lead before the Virtuosi driver rediscovered his rhythm to charge past the Canadian driver with a decisive overtake up the inside at Stowe on Lap 11.

With clean air ahead of him, Ghiotto produced a series of fastest laps to pull out a three-second buffer to take victory with Latifi in second place.

But the runner-up result sees Latifi take 10 points out of de Vries’s championship lead, which now stands at 27 points ahead of the Silverstone sprint race.

Zhou completed the podium, taking his fourth rostrum of the year comfortably ahead of Sette Camara in fourth place.

Jack Aitken pulled off a late attack on de Vries to take fifth spot, while further back Louis Deletraz grabbed seventh ahead of Callum Ilott in eighth and Nobuharu Matsushita in ninth.

Jordan King took the final point in 10th place, fending off Mick Schumacher late on, who was the sole Prema Racing entry to start the race after Sean Gelael pulled out of the weekend due to personal issues.
