Mitch Evans clutches the trophy in Catalunya

In just his second GP3 round Mitch Evans has topped the podium, and now the grand prix world knows all about the Auckland teen.

Leading from pole, Evans finished nearly two seconds clear at the Circuit de Catalunya.

On hand to congratulate the winner were parents Owen and Tracee, and manager Mark Webber, and it's turning into winning weekend for the Australian F1 driver, who'll start on pole tonight.

And what a sweet 16 it's been, Evans winning the New Zealand grand prix on his way to a second Toyota Racing Series title.

Young maybe, but the schoolboy is short of neither experience or success - he's been winning for 10 years.

Now Formula 1 is close to a reality.
