America's Conor Daly scored his first career GP3 victory in the second race of the opening weekend of the season at Barcelona in Spain.
From third on the grid, the Lotus GP driver outsprinted polesitter Robert Visoiu (Jenzer) via the grass into Turn 1, as front row starter Tio Ellinas of Manor took the lead having blatantly jumped the start.
When Ellinas pitted for his drive-through penalty on lap six, Daly was able to cruise to victory 3.2 seconds clear of Visoiu. Mathias Laine finished third, as his MW Arden teammate David Fuminelli lost his fourth position with a drive-through penalty due to setting a purple sector while yellow flags were out.
That promoted Lotus's Aaro Vainio to fourth, ahead of Patric Niederhauser (Jenzer). Antonio Felix da Costa (Carlin) barged his way past Lotus man Daniel Abt in the battle between Saturday's penalized leaders to finish sixth from 14th on the grid.
Ellinas finished 15th, with Fumanelli 17th. Saturday's runner-up Marlon Stockinger finished 19th for Status after a horrendously poor start, while opening race winner Mitch Evans was only 20th after pitting to have a punctured rear tire replaced.
MW Arden driver Evans still leads the championship by two points, however, ahead of Daly.
