Alexander Albon took over second place in the GP3 series after picking up a win in Malaysia on Saturday.

The Thai driver, who lives in Milton Keynes, took victory in Race 1 in Sepang to close the gap to run-away leader Charles Leclerc.

With the grid reversed for Race 2, Albon finished eighth, meaning he goes into the final round of the championship, in Abu Dhabi in November, 29 points behind team-mate Leclerc.
