A very good first lap for Niko Kari he moved up from p17 to the 11th place. The opposite happend with Boccolacci he dropped back from p13 to 16th place. Niko lost two places with 16 laps to go, but he was still in the DRS zone with the possibility to gain those positions back.
Ten laps to go and it started to rain! The pitstop crew began to prepare themselves for a possible tyre change. Everybody was driving on slicks, and the rain kept falling down. Unfortunately for Niko, he lost the control of his car under the wet conditions in turn 10 and crashed into the wall.
Dorian came into the pitlane not much later to change his tyres to rain tyres with seven laps to go.
Eventually, Dorian managed to gain some more positions in the last few laps and brought his car back home with an 8th position.
P8 Dorian Boccolacci
