Josep María Martí delighted the home crowd as he secured his first Formula 3 Feature Race victory at his and Campos Racing's home race. Starting from pole position, the Spaniard defended his position and showcased his skill to convert it into his third win of the season, firmly placing himself in the title fight.

Franco Colapinto returned to the podium with an impressive mid-race overtake to claim second place, while Dino Beganovic demonstrated his consistent form by comfortably securing third place.

In a race that saw early drama with Luke Browning's retirement due to contact, Martí made a strategic early pit stop on Lap 7 to gain an advantage. He maintained his lead despite intense pressure from Taylor Barnard, who eventually dropped down the order as Colapinto and Beganovic surged ahead.

Behind the front-runners, battles for positions unfolded throughout the field, with notable moves and fights for points. In the end, Martí crossed the finish line 4.4 seconds ahead of Colapinto, securing a well-deserved victory in front of the ecstatic home crowd.
