The self-proclaimed King Kong of the field Dorian Boccolacci enjoyed a strong campaign debut: sixth in qualifying, he took P5 in both races to score 16 points – the same amount as Leonardo Pulcini.
Anthoine Hubert may still have to wait some more before snatching a first GP3 win, but the Frenchman finished twice on the second step of the podium in Barcelona and took the early lead in the Drivers’ Standings.
Juan Manuel Correa grew in power throughout the race weekend: seventeenth in free practice, twelfth in qualifying, eighth in Race 1 and fourth in Race 2.
Rookie Simo Laaksonen was looking strong in qualifying, recording a seventh place, but a cooling fan left in his sidepod meant he had to rejoin the pitlane by the end of the formation lap, effectively ruining his chances to score big points. He finished in a lowly P15. The next day, he recovered to eighth position and grabbed his first championship point.
