Britain's Abbi Pulling dominated the first F1 Academy race in Barcelona as she beat home driver Nerea Marti.

Pulling took her fourth consecutive win of the season to extend her lead in the championship to 58 points over Doriane Pin with a lights-to-flag victory.

The Alpine junior is also on pole position for the second race - live on Sky Sports F1 at 7.45am on Sunday.

Pulling went side by side down to Turn One with Marti and took the inside, which was as close as she got to losing the race.

The Safety Car appeared on the first lap when Maya Weug and Amna Al Qubaisi collided at Turn Five, with the race only restarting on Lap 7.

The top five of Pulling, Marti, Chambers, Bianca Bustamante and Hamda Al Qubaisi remained the same after the restart.

Britain's Jessica Edgar crossed the line in sixth but dropped to eighth due to a five-second time penalty for jumping the start.
