Hegewald still unbeatable in race two

Tobias HegewaldTobias Hegewald completed a flawless weekend at Spa by claiming victory in the second Formula 2 race.

The German was fastest in every practice and qualifying session, then proceeded to repeat his Saturday dominance in today's race and launch himself into title contention despite having scored only two points in the opening four rounds.

Having lost second to a post-race time penalty yesterday, Andy Soucek did manage to claim the runner-up spot today. He had no answer for Hegewald's pace, but successfully held off Robert Wickens when the Valencia winner started gaining on him mid-race.

Soucek eventually edged away again and beat the Canadian by two seconds, taking the points lead in the process, while third place was some consolation for Wickens after his lap one disaster on Saturday.

Milos Pavlovic came through to fourth, overtaking Alex Brundle for the position late on after a long struggle. Brundle then fended off an equally strong challenge from Julien Jousse to hold on to a top five spot.

Just behind them, Kazim Vasiliauskas and Mikhail Aleshin completed the scorers, with Mirko Bortolotti's poor weekend continuing as he narrowly failed to beat fellow Red Bull protege Aleshin to the final point.
