New Zealand's Mitch Evans got back amongst the points in the GP2 series with a seventh placing in the second race at the Nurburgring in Germany tonight.

It went some way to making up for his disappointing feature race yesterday that was blotted by an error while snatching the lead and eventually finishing 16th.

Subsequently Evans had to start in 16th place on the grid today and steadily improved to 10th through the middle stages of the 24-lap "sprint".

He played a patient game from there, conserving his tyres while the drivers ahead pushed hard.

Evans made his move over the final six laps, storming up to seventh and collecting two championship points in the race staged as the curtainraiser to the German F1 grand prix.

That takes his season tally to 38 and keeps him within sight of the top 10 with the season just past the halfway stage.

After three races without any points following his double success at Monaco, it was a pleasing return for Evans who has shown good speed over the past month despite being plagued by problems.

The next meeting is in Budapest on 26-28.
