Britain's Alex Lynn eased to victory in the opening race of the 2014 GP3 Series at the Circuit de Catalunya.

The Red Bull junior driver started from pole position and was utterly dominant as he led every lap of his debut race in the championship, in front of the watching Helmut Marko.

A lunge at the first corner from Marvin Kirchhofer was the only challenge to Lynn's supremacy - the German outbraking himself and running across the tarmac run-off - in what turned out to be a tame affair.

Jimmy Eriksson was the only man to finish within ten seconds of Lynn and he took his maiden podium finish, with the returning Richie Stanaway completing the rostrum.

Revisions were made to the GP3/13 car over the winter to try to increase overtaking in the series - including new elements on the front-wing and wider front tyres - but the cars were still unable to follow each other closely enough to put on a spectacle for the fans who had stayed at the circuit following F1 qualifying.
