Korjus tops Rossi in race 2 in Spain
Reigning Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup champion Kevin Korjus took victory in race two of the opening round of the Formula Renault 3.5 season at Motorland Aragon this afternoon.

The Estonian led home Saturday's race one winner Alexander Rossi by 1.7 seconds.

At 18 years, three months and eight days old, Korjus becomes the youngest ever winner of a 480-HP Formula Renault 3.5 race. He beats the record previously held by Charles Pic by two days.

"I wasn't expecting this today," said Korjus. "I was P9 in qualifying until my last lap when I got P2. The race was just amazing. The car was even better after the pitstops, but when I came out I saw Alexander Rossi was getting closer and closer to me. I thought, 'Okay he is going to overtake, I need to focus on second position,' but I think he was pushing really hard and his rear tires got tired."

Polesitter Cesar Ramos made a slow getaway and was down to third by the exit of Turn 1. The Brazilian was passed by teammate Rossi during pitstops and finished fourth. Rossi's second position maintains the American's early lead in the drivers' standings.

Robert Wickens claimed fifth for Carlin ahead of Anton Nebylitskiy, who showed no after affects from his frightening somersault over Arthur Pic's Tech 1 car during Saturday's race.
