Uruguay’s Santiago Urrutia came in second and French driver Yann Ehrlacher third. The latter had a lucky escape, touching the barrier at the opening but sustaining no apparent damage.

There were two early crashes – the first from Paul Poon and another coming out of Mandarin Bend from Ben Bargwanna’s Peugeot. The yellow flag and safety car were out as marshalls cleared the track.

The race commenced at the end of lap three, by which point yesterday’s winner Norbert Michelisz had fallen to ninth.

Urrutia led going into the seventh lap. Frédéric Vervisch, driving an Audi, managed to take the lead at the Mandarin Bend. 

Yesterday’s third place finisher Rob Huff was in third place in the eighth lap, on course for a podium place, but his bonnet flew up after it touched the rear of Thed Björk’s vehicle, forcing Huff into the pits.
