Latifi wins Formula 2 season-opening Feature Race in Bahrain

The Canadian pulled out a five-second lead in the first race stint after passing pole-sitter Luca Ghiotto and Louis Deletraz. A slow pit stop saw him plunge to sixth but he fought his way back to the front in the second stint, where he pulled out an eight second gap to his rivals to record his third career race win in the series.

Ghiotto recovered from a clutch issue at the start to take second place, while Sergio Sette Camara finished third.

Sunday’s reverse grid Sprint Race will see Mick Schumacher line up in pole position after he snatched eighth place on the final lap.
