Artem Markelov was the driver who made the most passes at the Red Bull Ring and was rewarded for his efforts with victory in the Sprint Race.
After a somewhat unfortunate qualifying, the Russian Time STILO driver redeemed himself in the two races, showing both speed and tactical nous to also manage tyre wear. In the (longer) Feature Race, Artem made up position after position, including three moves on the last three laps to come home in 8th place. In the Sprint Race, starting from pole, Artem was uncatchable not making any errors and leaving his rivals to fight for second place. With the victory in Austria, Artem Markelov takes his third victory of the season and is now third in the championship standings.
