Isack Hadjar held off a charge from Invicta Racing’s Gabriel Bortoleto to take his second victory of the season in this weekend’s Imola Feature Race.

The Red Bull-backed Campos Racing driver came through from third on the grid to win his second consecutive Feature Race – after his triumph in Melbourne – propelling himself well into title contention.

McLaren Development Driver Bortoleto made a slow start from pole position but battled back well from fourth to score his first Formula 2 podium in P2.

Joshua Duerksen rounded out the top three, sealing his and AIX Racing’s first F2 podium, while also becoming the first Paraguayan driver to stand on the rostrum in the championship.

It was, however, a disappointing day for Oliver Bearman, who led the race in the early stages. The PREMA Racing driver stalled twice in the pit lane, dropping him to the back of the field, before taking the chequered flag in 19th.

His team mate, Andrea Kimi Antonelli, finished fourth on home soil, ahead of MP Motorsport’s Sprint Race winner Franco Colapinto, while Paul Aron continued to add to his points tally in P6.

DAMS Lucas Oil pair Jak Crawford and Juan Manuel Correa came from the back of the field to finish in seventh and eighth, ahead of Alpine Academy prospect Victor Martins in ninth and Trident’s Richard Verschoor in 10th.

Rodin Motorsport’s championship leader Zane Maloney endured a tough race as he lost time in a multi-lap battle with Roman Stanek before ending the race in 11th.

The drivers have a few days to debrief before heading to Monte Carlo for Round 5 of the season, which is set to take place from May 23-26.
