Round Review

Brilliant Mikko takes maiden victory!

In the World Championship, Norbert Leitner, who replaced Patrick De Wit, finished his debut WC race in 11th place, after surprising everyone with a brilliant Q1 lap which left him 5th fastest on his first WC qualifying. A mistake early in the race compromised his chances, as he lost time and had to switch to a three-stopper strategy, but Norbert recovered to finish just a position shy from scoring points on his debut.
Marcel van der Linden made a great start but had to retire early after a collision with Rodriguez caused terminal suspension damage.

In the Ace division, Norbert Leitner delivered a strong drive to finish the feature race in 4th place, his best Ace feature race result to date! Giuseppe Marconi retired early.
In the sprint race, Norbert recovered from a bad start to finish in 6th place, while Giuseppe Marconi ended in 14th.

In the Pro division, a brilliant Mikko has done it! After taking his first Pole Position, Mikko Suokas drove a perfect race, nursing a flat-spotted tyre home ahead of a fast-charging Klop to take his maiden FSR victory! It was the team's second of the season after Norbert Leitner's Ace sprint race triumph at Bahrain! Bravo Mikko!
FTS remains 3rd on the team standings, while Mikko, our flying Finn, has now also climbed to 3rd on the drivers table.
