Race 2: Carroll repeats success

P1 Motorsport and Adam Carroll are celebrating a double win in the British Formula 3 championship after Sunday's action at Spa-Francorchamps. Victory in the second race also earned the Brit honours in the Formula 3 FIA Eurocup. Carroll's double puts him in position to go for the title at Brands Hatch in three weeks.

Race 2: Carroll repeats success

Nelson Angelo Piquet still leads the championship by 26 points with just the two Brands Hatch races (each offering 21) left in the season. The Brazilian again drove a blinder from sixth on the grid to end the race in fourth and keep the points loss to a minimum.

Piquet had to work hard after dropping a place at the start, but fought past Lucas di Grassi, Marko Asmer and Danny Watts in a car that appeared to have a big advantage in a straight line. The Piquet Sports driver was all over Carlin's Danilo Dirani in the final laps as he chased the last podium place, but settled for a healthy finish. That meant the top three were the same as yesterday and Dirani kept up his good form.

The front pair of Carroll and Piccione were again in their own race, as in Saturday's race. And again there was not enough to choose between them for the Monegasque driver to have a serious try on Carroll, who crossed the line delighted to be back in the hunt after coming into the weekend a distant third. Fortec's James Rossiter only got 12th after starting near the back following problems yesterday, and is now out of the title race.

Adam Carroll Dallara-Mugen +30m06.595s
Clivio Piccione Dallara-Mugen +0.731s
Danilo Dirani Dallara-Mugen +5.439s
Nelson Angelo Piquet Dallara-Mugen +8.178s
Danny Watts Lola Dome-Mugen +6.484s
Lucas di Grassi Dallara-Renault 18m09.582s
