Mitch Evans dropped back to ninth in the GP2 series standings after finishing sixth in the Monaco Grand Prix sprint race.

Evans, who finished second in the feature race on Friday night (NZ time), collected his third points finish from six races this season, but was passed in the standings by race winner Stefane Richelmi and third-place finisher Rio Haryanto.

Last year in Monaco, Evans finished third in both races.

Starting seventh on the grid, Evans made a strong start off the line but was squeezed out by the drivers on the third row at the first corner. He picked up one spot by the end of the first lap, but could not make any inroads.

Richelmi and runner-up Sergio Canamasas got an early jump on the field and dominated the 30-lap race. Richelmi won by 2.179 seconds, with Haryanto another 6.116 seconds back in third. Then it was another 17.025 seconds back to a group of five drivers, including Evans, in fourth through eighth positions, who were separated by just two seconds.

The next round of the GP2 series is on June 21-22 at the Red Bull Ring in Austria.
