The Brazilian was put out at Croft, round eight of the championship, after two collisions. Tomas Scheckter made hay while the sun shone, finishing second to a flying Takuma Sato - who moves to a strong third in the series. Scheckter, now doubling up with his Formula 3000 commitments, earned a podium place to cut Pizzonia's lead to 30 points - with 20 available for a win.

Sato overhauled Stewart driver Narain Karthikeyan for third place, while RC Motorsport's Nicolas Kiesa moves to a single point behind the Madras-born driver after a podium position at Croft.
