PREMA Racing scored a lights-to-flag win today at Spa-Francorchamps, with Marcus Armstrong dominating Race 2 of the FIA Formula 3 Championship from the pole and cruising to his second victory of the year with a large margin. 

Not too far away from him, team-mate Robert Shwartzman took his second podium finish of the weekend, extending his championship lead over team-mate Jehan Daruvala, who rounded out the top-5.


# 26 - Marcus Armstrong

"We had a good start and I managed to open a gap a little bit. Then we were fast and the car was pretty good.  My thoughts are not to the race though, but to what happened yesterday. It was very difficult to race in these circumstances today, but we did the best we could."


# 27 - Jehan Daruvala

"In general the weekend handed us good results with pole, P3 and P5. I also moved back to second place in the championship. It has been difficult for everybody, and we all raced for Anthoine. I think we have to focus on Monza, we are all quite close and with four races to go anything can happen."


# 28 - Robert Shwartzman

"It has been a difficult race with a good result in the end. The start was good and I recovered some positions. There have been quite some battles after the early safety-car, and I managed to secure third place on the last lap. We come out of this weekend with two podiums. Right now my heart is with Anthoine's family. I really couldn't think about anything else. Once in the car, we have to do our job and I did the maximum, but my thoughts are with him, Juan and their families."
