Following the start Giuliano Alesi and Nikita Mazepin put the French poleman under pressure with Niko Kari and Leonardo Pulcini battling for fifth place behind the top trio. Boccolacci soon found his speed and left both drivers behind taking his first position and building up a gap ahead of them.

When the end of the main race was coming, Anthoine Hubert already was chasing Boccolacci for the first place not leaving more than 0.6 seconds between themselves trying to attack. MP Motorsport’s driver defended the leadership securing the team’s maiden victory.

Unfortunately, MP Motorsport’s Dorian Boccolacci grabbed pole position and sprinted to victory at the Paul Ricard circuit with 0.6 seconds ahead of Anthoine Hubert. Although the Frenchman could not be happy for his achievement as following the race the winner and his teammate the Finnish Niko Kari have been disqualified for not having enough gasoline in their cars for the regular check. The victory has been given to the other local Anthoine Hubert followed by the other ART driver Nikita Mazepin and Trident’s Italian Giuliano Alesi.

The Italian duo with Leonardo Pulcini and Alessio Lorandi followed the Ferrari junior with Pedro Piquet, Joey Mawson and Callum Ilott completing the points scorers.  The Australian Joey Mawson 2015 Champion of the German F4 scored his first ever GP3 points after arriving to the series in the beginning of the year.

Following the disqualifications the British Callum Ilott took pole position for the sprint race of GP3 Series round at the Paul Ricard circuit.
