Sam's GP2 championship challenge marches on following a superb victory in the Silverstone feature race while his title rivals faltered.
Just as at Monaco in the previous round, the Brit followed his 2012 World Series by Renault win with another triumph - this time leading home a double podium for his team RUSSIAN TIME, moving them up to second in the team championship.
Sam said: "I’ve got to say thanks to the team because we are getting better and faster and improving all the time. They’re working exceptionally hard.
"They are the first people coming to the track every day and the last ones to leave - there is a real energy around the team right now, they really want to win."
