The Formula 1 qualifying was under wet conditions, but the track was already dry before the start of the Formula 2 race.
The cars left the start grid to do their formation lap except for Dorian Boccolacci. He stalled the car and had to start the race from the pitlane with cold tyres.
Ralph Boschung lost places at the start he fell back from p13 to 19th position. Dorian had to close his gap first after he started out of the pitlane.
Many drivers started on the soft compound, so the earliest pitstop was already on lap 6. Ralph Boschung moved up to 16th position because of that. Boccolacci took over the 17th position on lap 9.
The first driver to do his pitstop was Dorian Boccolacci at lap 14. Ralph Boschung wanted to do a pitstop after that, But the VSC went on, and you are not allowed to do a pitstop. Just before the pitlane, the VSC switched over to Safety car and so he finally was still able to do a pitstop.
The positions at that time were P13 for Ralph and P19 for Dorian Boccolacci.
We were one of the only drivers on fresh option tyres with six laps to go, but Ralph got in a collision in turn 8 and span, but he couldn’t drive further after that.
P15 Dorian Boccolacci
DNF Ralph Boschung
