Round Review

Norbert drives strong race to 8th at Austin

In the World Championship, Norbert Leitner has scored his best result of the season with an 8th place finish at Austin! Norbert drove a really solid race at COTA, showing excellent pace on his four-stop strategy despite some light car damage to score good points for the team in P8, overtaking a fuel-saving Kostadinov near the end. Norbert's result is his second point-scoring finish in a row and the sixth consecutive one for FTS.
Mike Partington, meanwhile, had a very tough race due to a first-lap incident caused by a car reentering the racing line after a collision and collecting Mike in the process. Mike tried to push on despite the heavy damage on his front right suspension arm, but with an ill-handling car, he end up losing control of his FTS-P15 and retiring after clipping the barriers.
