Joel controlled the third and final F3 race of the weekend from start to finish, converting pole position into his fourth win of the season as he reclaimed the FIA F3 European Championship lead.
Joel rocketed away from pole to maintain his lead into Turn 1, and then kept second-placed Callum Ilott at bay throughout 22 uneventful laps, pushing when he needed to and setting the fastest lap of the race to underline his control.
Guan Yu Zhou was third on the road, but was handed a five-second post-race penalty for having cut the chicane as he battled with Lando Norris, promoting the Englishman to the final podium position.
As erstwhile championship spearhead Maximilian Günther came home sixth, the result sees Joel now move back into the overall lead, five points clear of the German.
Joel celebrated the success on the Hungaroring podium wearing a Swedish graduation hat to mark the occasion of his school examination next week.
“The best possible way to end this weekend, of course. It was a calm and collected race, and once I defended my lead at the first corner I was confident that I could bring it home. It’s great to be back at the top of the standings.”
