Kevin Magnussen took his first Formula Renault 3.5 win at Spa on Sunday.
The Carlin driver led the early stages of the race after a start behind the safety car due to heavy rain at the Belgian circuit. He briefly lost that place to Robin Frijns when the pair pitted together at the end of lap eight, but Magnussen charged past his fellow rookie at Les Combes on their out lap to resume the effective lead of the race.
Nick Yelloly took an impressive second for Comtec, having made his pitstop just as the safety car came out, which enabled him to get between Magnussen and Frijns.
Nico Muller came home fourth, while championship leader Sam Bird took fifth as he charged from 15th at the restart to a top five finish to retain his championship lead.
