F1 qualifying was electrifying, due to changing conditions and I wonder if there's a chance that this race will be the same. However the rain has stopped and the track is dry.

There's a staller near the back of the grid as the race gets underway but I can't see who it is and the commentators fail to mention the driver of the car.

Marciello manages to keep his lead while Palmer has lost out on 2nd to Evans.

Palmer tries to gain ground but runs wide, Nasr takes the opportunity to try and capitalise but Palmer shuts the door on any overtaking moves.

Evans gets a gap on Palmer but then the latter's tyres reach their optimum and soon Palmer is back in the battle.

Leal overtakes Cecotto around the outside of Stowe.

Palmer makes a beautiful move on Evans to regain 2nd and now he's on a mission to take the lead of the race.

Vandoorne is all over the back of Nasr, I wonder how long it'll be before he makes a move. Coletti is hanging back slightly, just in case he can take advantage of anything.

The pit window opens and Richelmi, Abt and Quaife-Hobbs all dive into the pit lane.

Leal's the next to pit and there's a slight issue as the front jack refuses to go under his car.

With 20 laps remaining Marciello relinquishes the lead in order to get the prime tyres put on his car.

Turn 4 incident between Berthon and Lancaster is under investigation but the stewards decide not to pursue the matter.

Marciello has come out in traffic he navigates his way past Lancaster's Hilmer and is eyeing up Haryanto when his car breaks! He appears to have lost drive and it must be a bitter disappointment, he was possibly on for a podium there.

Daly pits for the option tyres with 13 laps to go, interesting call by the team as the tyre life is meant to be 10 laps.

Coletti makes an important pit stop. Where he feeds out will tell us if Leal is possibly on for a podium or not.

Palmer pits while Evans stays out. Vandoorne also chooses to pit.

Vandoorne's pit has got him sneakily ahead of Leal by a couple of seconds.

Evans comes in 1 lap later and comes out ahead of Palmer. This is crucial. Palmer tries to go around the outside of him twice but remains 2nd both times.

Coletti overtakes Leal

Nasr has a terrible pit stop.

Lancaster receives a black and white flag.

Trummer takes an interesting line that involves him going into the gravel and bringing a lot of it onto the track.

Nasr is on a mission to make up for that bad stop and goes around the outside of Richelmi.

Quaife-Hobbs becomes the latest victim of the black and white flag.

De Jong slows and Markelov nearly barrels into the back of him.

Quaife-Hobbs is coming under pressure from Pic.

Black and white flag is being shown to Trummer.

Nasr and Cecotto are battling, this could prove to be important to the championship in the later stages as the two are 2nd and 3rd in the championship.

Evans crosses the line in 1st, Palmer is 2nd and Vandoorne rounds out the podium positions.

Leal makes a controversial pass on Coletti for fourth.

Richelmi takes reverse pole.

Rossi stalls at the start but causes no major issues for those around him. Coletti gets himself up to 2nd and Richelmi slips to 4th.

Marciello's sprint race is over before it really had a chance to begin, another DNF for him, definitely a weekend to forget.

Abt manages to lose 2places in a hectic battle, the Hilmers are looking as racy as they have all season...

Vandoorne is looking like he's wanting to make a move on Evans but a few laps later he loses out to Sorensen.

The incident that saw Marciello taken out is under investigation but no further action is taken.

Haryanto pits and Canamasas is the next driver to be out of the race.

Palmer takes advantage of Leal getting complacent and takes 4th.

Quaife-Hobbs once again receives a black and white flag, apparently he didn't learn anything from the feature race.

Palmer is on a mission to catch Cecotto for 3rd.

Coletti reports that he's losing power, considering he's in 2nd this could be a huge blow for him.

Pic's front wing is under his car, it turns out that Izawa turned in on him.

Evans makes a lunge at Richelmi but the latter knows that keeping calm is the way to retain his position.

Coletti's problem seems to have clearedup as he's back on pace and keeping hold of 2nd.

Nasr takes his 3rd win of the season, Coletti is 2nd and Cecotto holds on to 3rd.

POST RACE PENALTIES

Izawa has been handed a five place drop for the move on Pic which saw the latter's front wing go under his car.

Quaife-Hobbs has 20 seconds added to his time due to leaving the track on numerous occasions and gaining an advantage.
