After winning in hot conditions yesterday Andrea Amici went on to win the second race of theweekend at Paul Ricard under a grey sky. After his accident and a precautionary visit to the nearbyhospital, Adrian Zaugg was ruled out of the second race of the weekend with a sore neck.Pole-sitter Amici (#54) led the field into the first corner, but the Italian had Cedric Leimer (#63)right behind him. The two leading cars stayed close to each other, but were able to pull away fromthe other competitors. At the same time Matteo Zucchi (#22) and Leonardo Geraci (#20) were in abig battle for third place. That battle was briefly interrupted when Geraci went wide at turn 2, but alap later he was right behind Zucchi again and kept fighting for position until the pit stops.As soon as the pit window opened Leimer pulled in, but on his way into the pit lane the Swiss drivercrossed the white line and he was given a drive through penalty. One lap later Amici and Geracipitted, allowing Zucchi to take the lead ahead of David Hallyday, the French pop singer, in theAutomobili Lamborghini VIP Car #1. Hallyday briefly took the lead when Zucchi pitted one lapearlier. When all cars had completed their mandatory stop Amici was back in the lead, Leimerfollowed at 4.6 seconds.
