New Zealand driver Mitch Evans is the new GP3 motor racing champion after a dramatic end to the season at Monza in Italy.
The 18-year-old Aucklander could be overtaken at the top of the table only if he failed to score any points in the final race and German Daniel Abt got the chequered flag.
Abt looked on target to achieve his goal when he hit the front with two laps to go while Evans was languishing near the back of the field.
But Cypriot Tino Ellinas regained the lead he had conceded earlier to Abt and held on for victory.
Abt came home second and the 12 points he collected left him two points shy of Evans.
With the final race beginning with a reverse pole, Evans had to start 25th on the grid.
He moved up the field, but having got to 10th, ran wide and punctured.
He had to pit for new tyres and ended up finishing out of the points in 20th spot.
