Alexander Rossi powered to his maiden GP2 victory Saturday at Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi, becoming the first American to score a win in the F1 feeder series.

Rossi, who is trying to become the first American to compete in F1 since Scott Speed in 2007, converted his first career pole into spectacular race form, besting Britain’s and Sweden’s Marcus Ericsson in the 29-lap feature.
