The 2010 Formula 2 season review
The full story of how Dean Stoneman hunted down and defeated Jolyon Palmer to become the second champion of Formula 2's new era
Round 1 – Silverstone

Dean Stoneman had given chase early on but had to settle for second after spinning through 360 degrees half way through. Johan Jokinen was squeezed out of the battle for third on the first lap and Sergei Afanasiev held off Philipp Eng and the chasing pack to complete the podium.
