Haryanto and Pic take 5th and 8th place on Saturday

Both Campos Racing drivers score points in Russian GP. Haryanto and Pic came 5th and 8th in race one. Tomorrow, France´s driver will start on pole


Positive Saturday´s race for Campos Racing at Sochi Autodrom with both drivers in the top-ten. Arthur Pic made a stunning race start moving up to third place from sixth on the grid. Behind Rio Haryanto was running 12th after the first lap but the race was stopped immediately after due to an accident.


The race was shortened due to limited visibility. At the restart, Pic gains another place when Alex Lynn pits and even takes the lead in lap 8. Haryanto made his mandatory pit stop then and his teammate headed into the pit lane only a lap later. Unfortunately Pic made a mistake when rejoined the field and lost several places. On the other hand, Indonesian Haryanto was running 5th, crossing the finish line with that hard-fought position. Pic brough 8th place home but, maybe most importantly, secured pole position for tomorrow.

Race 2 has been rescheduled to 9.05.
