Notes
  1. ^ Bueno was suspended after offending the marshals on team radio after his victory in the first race at Ribeirão Preto - when he crossed the line, he kept racing in front of Marcos Gomes because the chequered flag was not waved at neither of them in the occasion by mistake. Because of the suspension, Laurens Vanthoor's participation in the second Curibita round is not as a guest driver (ineligible for points), but as a regular driver (racing for points).
