New Zealander Mitch Evans has won the 10th race of the GP3 season at the weekend's German Grand Prix.
In a race that was marred by crashes, Evans dominated the final laps to secure his third win of the year and consolidate his overall Championship lead.
The scheduled 18 lap race at Hockenheim was split into two dramatic dashes that both ended abruptly after high flying crashes. All but three of the laps were run behind a safety car.
Evans, who started on pole, was beaten off the line by Daniel Abt but reeled him back after the first safety car intervention with a finely judged overtaking move on the German.
"It wasn't a great start from myself, I got a lot of wheelspin and Daniel got me straight away," said Evans.
"Yesterday we made the wrong tyre call - like a few others did - on the grid. So that was our mistake. But we made up for it today. We had good pace in the wet but we had to fight hard to get the overall result in the points and it paid off.
Abt finished second, ahead of Daly, Pal Kiss, Matias Laine and Aaro Vainio. Evans has extended his lead and has an 18 point advantage over Vainio. Abt has moved up to third. Round six is at the Hungarian Grand Prix in Budapest, next weekend.
