Alex Palou achieved his best result yet in GP3 Series double-header by finishing fourth at Sochi Autodrom in Russia. Fourth on the grid, Campos Racing driver made a good start and threatened the podium, running in the slipstream of Emil Bernstorff´s car for almost the entire race. But tire degradation prevented from running in podium contention until the very last lap. Finally, Palou crossed the finish less than three seconds behind Bernstorff. Palou got another shot in race two with 5th place on the starting grid. First corners were very tricky and the Catalan pilot dropped to eight. Finally, the Spanish young ace came home in 9th.
