GP2 Asia 2011 summary

Romain Grosjean has won GP2 Asia for 2011. Although with only four races in the series, it wasn’t exactly difficult. The Renault test driver (and former driver for Renault in 2009) had a 20s penalty putting him out of the points in the final race, though he had the fastest lap, but his nearest opponent Jules Bianchi (Ferrari test driver) failed to finish in the points at all after having to retire from the sprint. Grosjean had 24 points, and Bianchi had 18. Third-placed driver Giedo van der Garde brought in 16 points for the Barwa Addax Team.
This meant that DAMS finished top of the teams, with Lotus ART second. The full results of the GP2 Asia season can be found in the link above or on the 2011 GP2 Asia Series season page on Wikipedia.

Spanish driver Dani Clos brought home Racing Engineering’s only points in the feature and sprint races, finishing seventh in the feature and winning the sprint. The team finished ninth overall: behind Rapax, AirAsia and Colini but ahead of Arden. Unfortunately, a disqualification for Davide Valsecchi left AirAsia struggling (he’d originally finished sixth in the feature), and they didn’t earn any points, but got nine at Abu Dhabi.
