The 2019 Barcelona Sprint Race, otherwise known as the 2019 Catalunya Race Two, was the sixth round of the 2019 FIA Formula 2 Championship, held at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya in Barcelona, Spain, on the 12 May 2019.[1] The race, staged in support of the 2019 Spanish Grand Prix, would see Nyck de Vries claim victory, having battled his way into the lead during the early stages of the race.[2]

Callum Ilott would start the race from pole position, although he would not lead the race beyond the end of the pit wall.[2] Instead, a fast starting Anthoine Hubert would surge into the lead, the Frenchman making a perfect getaway from third to scythe past Ilott and Jordan King.[2]

de Vries also made a strong start, and duly moved into second on the brakes for the first corner having followed the pink BWT Arden through.[2] The rest of the field made it around without issue, although an engine failure for Nobuharu Matsushita towards the end of the lap left his Carlin burning at the side of the circuit.[2]

Matsushita escaped the burning car without issue, although his choice of abandoning the car at turn ten ensured that the safety car was required to remove it.[2] The restart would see de Vries throw a half-hearted lunge at Hubert for the lead, resulting in the Frenchman opening out a small lead over the rest of the lap.[2]

de Vries would require a few laps to get back on terms with Hubert, before sending his ART slithering inside the Arden into turn one before the Frenchman could react.[2] With that de Vries was away, and duly left Hubert to defend second from a now charging Ilott.[2]

Indeed, Ilott was making a mid-race push in order to keep Luca Ghiotto at bay, the Italian having scythed his way op the order with a series of stunning moves.[2] When the Italian cleared Guanyu Zhou to secure fourth Ilott forced a move on Hubert, and duly secured second to leave the Frenchman in a very vulnerable third.[2]

Hubert fell to Ghiotto a few laps later, before tracking down and taking second from Ilott in the closing stages.[2] Out front, meanwhile, de Vries was able to cruise home to claim victory a few seconds clear of the Italian, while Hubert would be relegated to fifth by Zhou on the final lap.[2]

Background

The Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya was unchanged ahead of the Sprint Race, with no changes made to the field either.[1] Furthermore, there were no post-Feature Race penalties to redefine the grid, meaning Callum Ilott would start from pole as expected.[2]

Into the Championship and Nicholas Latifi had used his third win of the season in the Feature to extend his lead, moving 26 points clear of his closest challenger Jack Aitken. The Brit himself had also reinforced his hold on second, moving six clear of Luca Ghiotto, with the Italian very satisfied with his recovery drive. Nyck de Vries had, in contrast, lost ground in fourth, while Sérgio Sette Câmara retained fifth ahead of Guanyu Zhou.

DAMS, meanwhile, had smashed through the 100 point barrier in the Feature, moving onto 120 points after just five races. Behind UNI-Virtuosi had reclaimed second from Campos Racing, and had shaved a point out of DAMS' lead. Indeed, the British squad were now 39 points behind the French squad, while Campos had slipped 47 points off the leaders.
