Esteban Gutierrez kept out of trouble to claim third spot ahead of young Briton Lando Norris, who shrugged off recent technical glitches to finish fourth, his best place of the season.

Former series leader Charles Leclerc endured a disastrous day, involved in a pile-up at the first corner which dropped him down the order and saw him eventually limp home in 14th place.

The final race of the Virtual season takes place on the Montreal circuit next Sunday, where another strong performance from Russell will claim him the title.
