F2 Sprint Race review: Spielberg, Austria 2018

A point-scoring performance at the sixth round of the FIA Formula 2 Championship in Austria this weekend (29 June – 1 July) has lifted Charouz Racing System up to an impressive P3 in the Teams’ Championship standings.

The Czech squad traveled to the Spielberg circuit fresh from securing its fourth podium of the season at Le Castellet in France – courtesy of Louis Delétraz – a week earlier.

Although an F2 rookie, the team continued its impressive point-scoring form during Saturday’s Feature Race as Antonio Fuoco shone during the frantic 40-lap race. Starting from P13 on the grid, the Italian dropped to P17 when he was forced to make an un-planned pit stop early in the race to replace a damaged front wing.

But that signalled the...

F2 Feature Race review: Spielberg, Austria 2018

Charouz Racing System driver Antonio Fuoco delivered one of the drives of the FIA Formula 2 Championship season so far as he fought his way from P17 to P3 in the Feature Race at Austria’s Spielberg circuit today.

Team-mate Louis Delétraz also put on an impressive performance during the 40-lap battle and was well placed to fight for the podium places as the race entered its final phase. However, an engine problem cruelly forced him to retire his ADS Securities-supported car with eight laps remaining.
