Starting Grid for Race 2: Daruvala
P 2 - Norris P 6 - Shwartzman P 8.
Race 2: Daruvala drove a good race but lost a few positions
during the opening lap. After an incident with another driver he
had to retire due to a broken front suspension. Shwartzman who
fought his way up to P 6 became a Drive Through Penalty and
finished P 14. Lando Norris drove the best race of the season.
Still handicaped with his neck problem he made his way up
through the field. After some impressive overtaking moves he was
nearly able to take over the lead. In the end he finished on P 2
and crowned himself "Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup Champion
2016" already one weekend before the end of the season.
An incredible performance of the young Lando Norris.
