Sunday, 18 November, AMARAVATI (India): Britain’s Sam Whittle secured his first Grand Prix title for F1 Atlantic in the F4-S Championship with a solid second place in today’s second race of the weekend behind Victory Team’s Ahmed Al Fahim, the win putting him into third overall.
Series newcomer Ben Jelf completed a very impressive debut coming home in third place to seal the runners-up slot.
In a very processional race it was pole-sitter Al Fahim who dominated from lights out and again at the restart on lap 3 after the yellow flag was raised to remove the stationary Mad Croc boat.
Behind the lead trio Blaze Performance’s Max Stilz mad up for the disappointment of his race 1 DNF, finishing in fourth after staving off a strong challenge from Emirates Racing’s Tom Chiappe and moves back to the top of the championship standings by one point from Abu Dhabi’s Mohammed Al Mehairbi, who finished sixth.
