Winter Series Champion Osvaldo Angelone has finally secured a strong result with victory in Shanghai. The Colombian driver was able to break Montero's two-race winning streak after the Argentinian suffered from an unfortunate lag-related collision with Roberto Scime. After leading in the early stages of the race, Montero had to settle for second place despite showing incredible pace to recover the ground lost from the collision with Scime. Mackey was able to step on the podium for the third consecutive time for Scuderia Ferrari. Pole Position was once again dominated by Ezequiel Montero in the Renault.
Defending champion Ezequiel Montero has made it two out of two with victory in Bahrain extending his lead over Mackey to 14 points. Cory Mackey followed him close behind with a consecutive second-place finish while Darren Fisher managed third place but couldn't taste the champagne after the unofficial results saw debutant Roberto Scime score a provisional 3rd that was later on stripped off due to a breach in the tire regulations.
Defending champion Ezequiel Montero has begun his quest at defending the crown properly with a victory in Australia.
