Notes

  1. ^ All drivers competed in Dallara chassis; model listed.[2]
  2. ^ Daniel Juncadella was disqualified from the first Norisring race after collisions with Pascal Wehrlein and Raffaele Marciello. The officials chose not to recognise any driver as having finished in first place.[20]

Championship standings[edit]

The second race at the Norisring was red-flagged after half the race had been completed due to torrential rain. As a result, series organisers only awarded half points to each of the classified finishers eligible to score points.[21]
