BARCELONA, SPAIN - JUNE 23: Race winner Arvid Lindblad of Great Britain and PREMA Racing (3)

Arvid Lindblad became the first repeat winner in 2024 after putting in a dominant display at the Barcelona Feature Race to take victory for PREMA Racing.

The Red Bull Academy junior kept a hold of second place at the start but showed great pace to overtake ART Grand Prix pole-sitter Christian Mansell for the lead on Lap 4.

From then on, the British driver showed a clean pair of heels as he went off into the distance to win the 100th Formula 3 race and to become the youngest Feature Race winner in the Championship’s history.

Mansell was able to cross the line in second, giving him his third podium finish of the year, while Leonardo Fornaroli overtook Luke Browning on the last lap to take P3 and the Championship lead.

Browning not only lost out to his Trident rival on the final lap but also to Campos Racing’s Oliver Goethe, leaving the Hitech Pulse-Eight driver to cross the line in P5 ahead of the Alpine-backed Nikola Tsolov.

MP Motorsport’s Alexander Dunne was able to capitalise on his fellow McLaren Development Programme member Martinius Stenshorne and ART’s Laurens van Hoepen’s final lap collision that left both with punctures to finish in P7.
