Théophile Naël claimed another lights-to-flag victory for Sainteloc Racing in the second race at Navarra on Sunday.


Starting from pole position, the Frenchman had a quick getaway while Campos' Enzo Deligny got stuck behind. The top five remained mixed through the opening laps, with Rinicella, Ho, and Al-Azhari changing positions while trailing the leading pair.


Andrés Cárdenas lost four positions on the opening lap. CRAM's Flavio Olivieri gained eight positions from 26th on the grid, the most by any driver in Race 2.


MP Motorsport's Pedro Clerot climbed up to sixth from ninth on the grid in the opening lap. Noah Strømsted followed closely and nearly retook Clerot for his original position on the following lap.


Rodin Carlin's Ninovic overtook Strømsted on the third lap as a train began to form behind the Campos driver. Meanwhile, Fernando Barrichello retired in the pit lane due to a safety belt issue.


Théophile Naël built a comfortable 1.5s gap to Enzo Deligny to extend his championship lead, while positions remained unchanged throughout the rest of the field.


Rinicella took a comfortable third place with the fastest lap point to add. Christian Ho and Keanu Al-Azhari, fourth and fifth respectively, followed behind with strong points finishes.
