First Pole Position for Hilmer Motorsport and Daniel Abt in GP2 Series in Spa

First Pole Position for Hilmer Motorsport and Daniel Abt in GP2 Series in Spa


Daniel Abt just barely misses podium.

The GP2 team of Hilmer Motorsport looks back on a successful weekend in Spa. Daniel Abt clinched his and the team’s first Pole Position. In a turbulent and chaotic race on Saturday, which was aborted for 20 minutes due to heavy rain, the only German driver in the field showed an outstanding performance. A perfectly planned pit stop helped Abt to have a clear track and clear visibility on the 7.004 kilometer long and wet track. Abt was able to gain the time he needed to overtake many competitors after their pit stops. After a spectacular overtaking in the infamous “Eau Rouge” and a hard fight over many laps Abt managed to climb up to eight position on the final lap. According to the regulations, the Top 8 drivers of the Saturday race will start in reverse grid order in the sprint race. This meant that Abt was on Pole Position for the first time ever. The German got off to a good start but lost first place to Felipe Nasr, who is second in the GP2 Championship. On the same lap, Championship leader Jolyon Palmer nearly ended Abt’s race after a hard-fought battle and Abt dropped back to fourth. During the course of the race, Abt could keep up with Palmer and the gap between both drivers was less than one second. On the last lap Abt lost another position and crossed the finish line in fifth place.

Dams, GP2 Series, Round 8, Spa-Francorchamps


The Sarthe-based team had a pretty hectic return to the circuits after the summer holidays, which it concluded with a top-3 finish (his ninth this season) for Jolyon Palmer after a no-holds-barred battle. The Englishman still has a comfortable lead in the drivers' championship with 32 points in hand over his main rival Felipe Nasr, but the latter is turning up the pressure. Once again Lady Luck didn't smile on Stéphane Richelmi on Saturday, but he continued to prove his inherent speed the next day with a hard-charging drive even if he failed to score points.

Belgium Review: Alex Back To Winning Ways After Some Spa Treatment


It feels so good to get another win in the GP3 Series with the Carlin team, especially after such an exciting race in challenging conditions on such a great circuit as Spa. I had a hard fight with Richie Stanaway all the way – he’s my main title rival and the important thing is that I’ve pulled out one more point on him after our weekend in Belgium.

Qualifying was frustrating one for Yelloly as he finished in 13th position, putting him further back on the grid for race 1 than he wanted.

Incredible Drive From Stefano As He Finishes 7th After Starting 24th Today At Spa


The weather had improved greatly today at Spa from yesterday’s wet and changeable conditions with the sun shining although air and track temperatures of 11° and 18° respectively were still chilly and there were a few damp patches still on the track following heavy overnight rain. Following his stunning debut victory in Saturday’s Feature Race Lello would be starting today’s 18 lap Sprint Race from 8th on the reversed grid while Stefano who retired would be right at the back of the field in 24th position. Most of the cars would be using the Pirelli P Zero Orange hard compound tyres with just two drivers opting for the softer P Zero White.
