Oliver Bearman took top spot in the FIA F2 Feature Race in Barcelona, claiming his second win of the season from pole position. It was the 18-year-old's second Feature win of the year, and it marked a top weekend for the Italian team.

Enzo Fittipaldi held on to finish second, while Victor Martins secured third place. Bearman defended his position at the start, with Fittipaldi and Ayumu Iwasa challenging him.

Pourchaire and Doohan made bold moves to move up the field. Pit stops shuffled the order, but Bearman maintained his lead. Martins and Vesti made impressive overtakes to secure podium finishes.

Bearman took a commanding victory, with Fittipaldi and Martins completing the podium. Vesti narrowly missed out on a podium spot, finishing in fourth. "Not a bad race today! I made a good start, not as good as I was hoping for, but I managed to be in the lead into sector 2, which was the goal," said Bearman.

"We tried to extend on options as much as possible and managed to do so. That obviously got us in a good position when we put the prime. After that, it was pretty clear sailing, although it was tough to pass all these cars without damaging my tyres. Once I was in the lead, it was just the case of managing and saving a bit of tyres in case of a safety car or something like that."
