Lundgaard started from the 3rd position but went wide in turn one. Despite that, he managed to overtake the first two cars with a great slipstream after Eau Rouge, and so he took over the lead of the race. Alex Peroni had a difficult first lap he went off and lost many positions. Opmeer did it better he moved up three places and took over the 14th position.
Opmeer kept going forward! He moved up to 12th position with still 21 minutes to go. Peroni had to stop his car and Christian Lundgaard kept the lead after he lost it for one lap.
A lot of fighting was going on just behind Christian Lundgaard for position 2 and 3. This gave Lundgaard some “air” to keep the lead with a gap of 2,6 seconds. Jarno Opmeer maintained his 12th position at that moment.
The safety car went out with 3 minutes to go because Sharon Scolari crashed in Eau Rouge, but it took to long to clear the track, and so Christian Lundgaard Won the race under the safety car and took over the championship lead!
P1 Christian Lundgaard
