Antonio Giovinazzi won the GP2 feature race at Malaysia, taking the lead of the championship standings.
"It was a fantastic race! I would like to thank again PREMA Racing for the fantastic car," he said. "It really was not an easy race because after the pit stop, I was behind Sirotkin but I knew my pace would be better than his at the end so I started to push more and finally overtook him three laps before the chequered flag. The car was really good and I really enjoyed it."
Giovinazzi spoke about the race tomorrow and states that his only goal is to score points and extend the championship lead over his team-mate Pierre Gasly.
"I couldn’t be happier right now," he said. "Tomorrow, the goal will be to score more points. Pierre is starting from P11 so I need to remain calm during the sprint race."
"I want to take as many points as I can to arrive in Abu Dhabi a bit safer and to extend my lead over Pierre."
