Charouz Racing System: Adu Dhabi Sprint Race review

Charouz Racing System ended its debut FIA Formula 2 Championship season in perfect style today as Antonio Fuoco dominated the Abu Dhabi Sprint Race and took an impressive lights-to-flag victory.

It was the Italian’s second win of the year – following his success on the streets of Monaco in May – and the perfect way to back up his and the Czech team’s solid P7 finish during Saturday’s F2 Feature Race.

Team-mate Louis Delétraz also enjoyed a strong race in his ADSS-supported car as he recorded his second P6 finish of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix weekend.

Starting from P2 on the Sprint Race grid, Antonio made a perfect getaway as he rocketed past pole man Roberto Merhi into Turn One at the Yas Marina circuit.

Charouz Racing System: Abu Dhabi Feature Race review

Charouz Racing System completed the penultimate race of its maiden FIA Formula 2 Championship season in style today, securing a pair of point-scoring finishes during the Abu Dhabi Feature Race.

Battling under the floodlights that illuminate the Yas Marina Circuit at night, Louis Delétraz brought his ADSS-supported car home in an impressive P6 to earn eight championship points. Team-mate Antonio Fuoco finished just behind in P7 as he added a further six points to his 2018 tally.

With both men proving their speed during Friday’s free practice and qualifying sessions, the Czech squad – chasing P4 in the Teams’ Championship – had high hopes for a positive outcome when the 60-minute Feature Race got underway. Louis started from P6 and...
