Valencia GP3: Daly leads ART one-two in first race

Conor Daly scored a lights-to-flag victory at Valencia to head home an ART Grand Prix one-two in GP3 on Sunday morning

Valencia GP3: Daly leads ART one-two in first race

The American resisted the early challenge from his team-mate Facu Regalia to record a 1.2 second victory.

Stewards are reviewing his post-victory celebrations, however, for "driving the wrong direction after the chequered flag".

Koiranen GP's Kevin Korjus finished third after front row starter Daniil Kvyat (MW Arden) ran wide at Turn 4 on the opening lap, losing his second place. He rejoined in fourth, and chased Korjus to the end, missing out by just 0.3s.

Arden's Carlos Sainz Jr finished fifth from eighth on the grid, with points leader Tio Ellinas in sixth for Manor.

Aaro Vainio lost ground off the startline, slipping from fourth to seventh.

Robert Visoiu grabbed the coveted eighth spot, and reversed-grid pole position, from Dino Zamaparelli with five laps remaining. Zamparelli and fellow Brit Jack Harvey rounded out the top 10.
