An action-packed Macau

There was plenty of action on Sunday in Macau after Saturday's 10-lap race in which Japan's Kamui Kobayashi won pole position for the main event. He was followed home by Marko Asmer and Kohei Hirate ahead of F3 Euroseries champion Paul di Resta, Japan's Kodai Tsukakoshi and Adrian Sutil. British F3 champion Mike Conway finished seventh.

For the main race, however, there was the usual drama with Kobayashi, Asmer and di Resta all tangling. This left Conway ahead of Hirate with Kobayashi charging through the field (although he would later retire after a crash with Romain Grosjean). The man on the move was Richard Antinucci (ASM) who made several overtaking moves to finish second, just behind Conway. Japanese F3 champion Adrian Sutil finished third. Sebastien Buemi was fourth ahead of Grosjean and Britain's John Jakes.
