      Winning ways for IWI Watches Ambassador Will Stevens as he starts 2014 with a win

Will Stevens made an outstanding start to the 2014 Formula Renault 3.5 Series at Monza in Italy. A faultless lights-to-flag victory in the opening race of the season.

Marking the maiden 'World Series by Renault' triumph for the 22-year-old racing in a Strakka Racing car, WIll made a sensational getaway to grab the lead on the run to the first corner and never looked back, although his lead was cut during an early Safety Car period; Will went on his way to a dominant 6.8 second win.

“I'm really happy to get the win, my first in World Series," says Stevens, “The car was mega. We managed to get a good start and controlled the race really well. It's been a long time coming but we knew we could do it."

Dominating round one from the outset, Stevens had qualified fourth fastest but a problem for the pole-sitting car of Carlos Sainz Jnr prior to the green flag lap meant the lead Strakka Renault FR 3.5 was effectively third on the grid.

With lightning reactions, the Caterham Racing Academy driver was able to avoid slow-starting rivals ahead and sliced his way through to the lead. After the Safety Car period, Stevens pulled further and further clear of the chasing pack to build an advantage of more than seven seconds into the final lap.
