BARCELONA-CATALUNYA CIRCUIT | The first of the last three races of the season has started with polemic actions. It was an astonishing win by R-ace GP driver, Robert Shwartzman who lead the whole race in front of teammate, Will Palmer.

Palmer didn’t take the advantage of Sacha Fenestraz (Josef Kaufmann Racing) fourth position. Franco-Argentinean driver had a difficult race and lost podium position with Gabriel Aubry (Tech 1 Racing), as well as he had to defend from Max Defourny (R-ace GP) attacks.
Despite that, Defourny finished sixth just behind rookie winner Richard Verschoor (MP Motorsport). On seventh position finished his teammate and collegue in Red Bull Junior Team, Neil Verhagen (MP Motorsport).
An impressive performance as well from British F4 graduate, Logan Sargeant (R-ace GP) who finished in 8th position followed by teammates Charles Milesi and Raul Guzman who made an impressive comeback from 17th place.
With 2 races remaining, Fenestraz have 46.5 points lead over Palmer.
