Marcus Armstrong produced one of his finest drives in the FIA Formula 2 Championship en route to his second race win of the season.
The New Zealander prevailed at the Red Bull Ring, adding to the victory that he took at Imola earlier this year.
Armstrong led from reverse grid pole position, and held on to his position through the opening corners from Theo Pourchaire.
Pourchaire followed in second place for much of the race, but couldn’t mount an attack on the Hitech Grand Prix driver in front.
Pourchaire crossed the line in second place, but is under investigation for a track limit violation, with several driver dished out penalties for exceeding the white lines on multiple occasions.
Jack Doohan closed in on Pourchaire in the final laps of the race, but couldn’t produce a move to progress into second place, and had to settle for third.
Championship leader Felipe Drugovich was fourth, ahead of Juri Vips in fifth.
Richard Verschoor was seventh, leading Carlin driver Logan Sargeant in seventh. Red Bull junior Ayumu Iwasa took the final point on offer in the Sprint Race by crossing the line in eighth.
Enzo Fittipaldi was ninth, while Dennis Hauger rounded out the top 10.
Sunday’s Feature Race will get underway at 10:05 local time.
