Gianmaria Bruni began to rebuild his reputation damaged last year in F1 with victory in the GP2 race in Barcelona on Saturday. The Italian beat American Scott Speed by 1.2secs after a race-ling duel. Heikki Kovalainen was third after a good race from 11th on the grid. Neel Jani was fourth from 13th on the grid with Nelson Piquet Jr. fifth and Jose Maria Lopez sixth. Seventh and eighth went to Adam Carroll and Alexandre Negrao completing the top eight. These drivers will now start the race on Sunday morning in reverse order with Negrao on pole position.
