DAMS LEADS F2 DRIVERS’ AND TEAMS' CHAMPIONSHIP AFTER VICTORY IN BAKU

 Latifi Car Baku

Baku, Azerbaijan (April 30th 2019) – 

 

Latifi leapt up from seventh on the grid at the start of the Feature Race to fourth by the end of lap one and was running in a podium position for the majority of the race. His eventual fourth-place finish was enough to regain the lead in the drivers’ championship.

The Williams Formula 1 reserve driver made short work of getting into the Sprint Race lead, picking up a place off the line to get to third. Once the Canadian secured second after the first safety car restart, he slashed the two second gap to the leader and took the position with ease.

Despite two further safety cars putting the chasing field back on his tail, Latifi held on and scored a sensational win.

Sette Camara made a strong recovery drive after being eliminated from the Feature Race when he was hit under safety car conditions. From 14th on the grid, the McLaren Formula 1 junior kept his nose clean amid a chaotic race and scored good points in sixth to keep DAMS on top in the teams’ championship, setting the fastest lap of the race along the way.

The third round of the 2019 FIA Formula 2 Championship will take place in Barcelona, Spain on May 10-12.
