Dorian Boccolacci has lost his GP3 win after being disqualified from the opening race at Paul Ricard, meaning fellow Frenchman Anthoine Hubert has inherited his first victory in the series. 

Boccolacci had converted pole position into a dominant win, but was found guilty of failing to supply an adequate fuel sample post-race. MP Motorsport teammate Niko Kari - who finished fifth - was also excluded for the infringement. 

"Following today's GP3 Series race one at Le Castellet, France, it was found that cars #22 and #24 were unable to provide an inadequate fuel sample following post-race technical checks,” a GP3 statement read. 

"The stewards have determined that MP Motorsport have failed to ensure that the mandatory one-litre fuel sample could be taken from both cars in accordance with the technical regulations."

The victory had been MP’s first in the series, with the Dutch outfit joining the championship for 2018 in place of the outgoing DAMS squad. 

Hubert’s maiden win ends his run of second-place finishes, while ART Grand Prix teammate Nikita Mazepin and Trident driver Guliano Alesi also profited to take the second and third spots on the rostrum.

The revised result also promotes Ferrari Formula 1 junior Callum Ilott to eighth, which will turn into reverse grid pole for Sunday’s race. 

Hubert now leads the championship standings by 16 points over Mazepin, while ART has extended its points lead to 62 over Trident in the teams’ standings.
