Nicolas Lapierre underlined the talent he has shown in both the F3 Euroseries and a recent F3000 test by winning the 50th Macau Grand prix over two incident-packed legs.

The Frenchman triumphed as much by staying on the road as for winning the second of two races in the former Portuguese colony, but came home ahead of the field on aggregate after notching second in race one to Australian James Courtney and winning race two ahead of leg one polesitter Fabio Carbone.

Courtney lost his chance of success by retiring from the second race with five laps to, allowing Carbone and Katsuyuki Hiranaka to claim the final podium places. The Australian's Japanese F3 rival Ronnie Quintarelli came through to take fourth overall, with another Aussie, Euroseries champion Ryan Briscoe, completing the top five.
