Richard Vershor won the main race in Austria in Formula 2 on Sunday. At the Red Bull Ring, the 21-year-old Trident Racing driver drove his second win of the season.
Vershor previously won the inaugural sprint sprint at the weekend in Bahrain. The Dutchman started on the wet circuit from eighth on dry tires and took the lead on lap seven.
The driver did not give up this leadership position. This was mainly due to the fact that he started racing on spots, while many of his competitors started on wet tires on the dry track.
India’s Jehan Daruvala was second, 13 seconds behind Vershor. Logan Sargent of the United States completed the podium. Thanks to his victory, Vershor (70 points) rose from twelfth to fifth in the championship led by Brazilian Philip Drogovic (154 points).
The Formula 2 race in Spielberg is part of the Formula 1 support program. Max Verstappen can secure more Dutch success later on Sunday if he manages to win the Austrian Grand Prix. The race starts at the Red Bull Circuit at 3pm.
