Hamilton Dominates Race 2

Lewis Hamilton put the disappointment of being disqualified from victory in yesterday's F3 Euroseries race behind him to win the second race at Spa

Hamilton Dominates Race 2

Hamilton dominated the race and finished 2.16 seconds ahead of teammate Adrian Sutil.

Hamilton, starting second, quickly disposed of pole position holder Sutil at the start. Sutil led into the first corner at La Source, but Hamilton got the tow from the German as they approached Eau Rouge.

In a brave move, Hamilton passed Sutil round the outside of Eau Rouge and defended his position into Les Combe. Hamilton then drove away setting repeated fastest laps on his way to victory.

Such was ASM's dominance they finished nearly 18 seconds ahead of Brazilian Lucas Di Grassi in third. Fourth was Team Rosberg's Kohei Hirate.

Di Grassi's Manor Motorsport teammate Paul di Resta finished fifth. The Scot spun from fourth place early on, dropping to eighth. He quickly recovered, with a spectacular move around the outside of Perera around the outside of Blanchimont.

The other major incident of the race involved Esteban Guerrieri and Giedo van der Garde on the second lap. The pair were battling for third, when they outbraked each other at Les Combes. Both ran onto the grass and spun.
