New Zealand's Mitch Evans survived the carnage to claim a podium finish in the GP2 feature race at Monaco tonight.

Evans finished third in a race won by Briton's Sam Bird.

It was Evans' second podium finish in his first four meetings as a rookie in this series.

Evans, second on the grid, made a fast start to get past team-mate Johnny Cecotto and avoid a first turn pileup that saw 12 cars taken out and the race put on hold for more than an hour.

Nine cars didn't make the restart. But Evans again jumped out fast to lead through the first 11 laps before pitting to change all four tyres.

That allowed Bird to take control, finishing ahead of Kevin Ceccon, with Evans holding off a fast-finishing Felipe Nasr.
