Unaware of a stewarding decision that would affect the outcome, Williams locked out the front row courtesy of Brzezinski and Wisniewski. Porsche needed to break that up to win the round, match, and championship, and Michael Smidl and Atze Kerkhof both duly went for Wisniewski’s second position on lap four. Wisniewski ended up hopping the chicane and unfortunately collecting team-mate Stefanko. Brzezinski still took the win, but with the Porsches of Smidl, Kerkhof and Ben Cornett taking second through to fourth, the team race ended up as a tie.
That would have been enough on its own for Porsche to take the title, however the stewards then penalised Williams for a pit stop infringement during the Relay as well - handing that round to Porsche. The overall result was a 1-1 tie, preserving Porsche’s unbeaten record and allowing them to take the championship by three points.
There was also a head-to-head for third place, as Red Bull took on BMW. That proved more straightforward for Red Bull, with Graham Carroll the star man in a 3-0 drubbing. BMW had been the only squad capable of taking that second place away from Williams, but the result meant Williams stayed second and won £20,000, with Red Bull in third and earning £15,000, and BMW fourth to take £10,000. The remaining four teams - Racing Point, JAESA Suzuki, Yas Heat, and Fordzilla - receive £5,000 each.
