Our congratulations to James who finished the GP3 series in second place. The last race weekend of the year took place at Monza, Italy 9th-11th September. In the first race on Saturday, James drove one of the best races of his life to finish second, but was unable to pass team mate Bottas.

In the second race on Sunday, James started seventh on the grid and raced to third before taking the lead on lap three. A scuffle with Mitch Evans, who had taken the lead on lap 11, saw an early finish to Evans’ race and a post race 20 second penalty for James. The handicap imposed after the Lotus ART driver failed to serve an end-of-race drive-through, dropped him to 14th position.

James finishes the 2011 season in second place with 55 points. Congratulations!
