  • Evan Giltaire would certainly have won in other conditions but a victory is a victory. Starting from the front row after his qualifying time was finally restored, the ART Grand Prix driver did the hardest in the first moments of this Race 2.
  • With a better reaction to the lights going out, the Habs got the better of pole sitter James Wharton (Prema) and took the lead from the first turn. Although he had to defend his position during the first moments of Race 2, Evan Giltaire ultimately did not have much to do.
  • It was certainly necessary to manage two restarts but this Race 2 ultimately had very little rhythm since the safety car intervened 3 times and for more than two thirds because of the incidents concerning Edgar Pierre (RPM), Ugo Ugochukwu (Prema) , Kenato Le (G4 Racing) and Costa Toparis (KIC Motorsport). On a 30 minute test + 1 lap that's a lot. Evan Giltaire was even guaranteed success with a little less than 3 minutes to go since the Safety Car once again appeared on the track and never returned to the pit lane.
  • First victory for the Frenchman in FRECA who won under SC regime ahead of Rafael Câmara (Prema) and Ivan Domingues (VAR), the day after his retirement due to technical problems. The French Enzo Deligny (R-ace GP) and Théophile Naël (Saintéloc Racing) completed the Top 5.
  • For ART Grand Prix, this is the first victory since October 23, 2022 at Mugello where Gabriele Mini won.
