Main Race

An exceptional race by Tréluyer meant that he would lead from start-to-finish. Bourdais was seemingly the only person who could mount such a challenge, but after retiring on lap 15, it was a relatively easy run until the finish for Tréluyer. Although, Dumez did close up the gap considerably toward the end, with the winning margin being less than two seconds.
