    Read more Artem Markelov finished a fighting fifth in another hectic Baku feature race that saw two Safety Car interventions, a Virtual Safety Car period and ultimately a red flag five laps before the end of the scheduled 29.

    Team mate Luca Ghiotto, who crashed in qualifying and was at the back of the grid, adopted a reverse strategy by starting on the prime tyre but the timing of the Safety Car interventions and a problematic pit stop worked against the Italian, who was classified 16th.
