Dennis Hauger tok sin første seier i Formel 2 under lørdagens sprintløp i Monaco. Les mer i denne pressemeldingen fra Red Bull Junior Team.
Dennis Hauger shook off early season frustrations with a perfect Sprint Race victory in his Monaco debut. The 19-year-old Norwegian F3 champion scored his first F2 win after leading Prema teammate Jehan Daruvala, the 23-year-old Indian, for the entire race.
Fellow Red Bull Junior Jüri Vips, the 21-year-old Estonian, was equally happy with a complete change of fortune, finally matching his well established pace with a 3rd place finish in the Feature Race.
Fortune didn’t smile on Liam Lawson or Ayumu Iwasa though with the 20-year-old New Zealander setting the fastest time in Qualifying only to be penalised. The 20-year-old Japanese also lost his best Qualifying time and then had incidents in both races while Lawson stopped in the Feature Race with a mechanical problem.
“Very very special to win in Monaco.”
“We started with a bit of a tough Quali, I was just not feeling 100% comfy with the car.”
“We sorted it out for the races though and I am confident that we have made a good step forward that is going to help us.”
“It was awesome to get my first win in Monaco and in F2. Race 2 was also good but unlucky with Safety Car for us on the strategy we had gone for. We’d made an early stop and the others got the advantage of the Safety Car. We were having really good pace and just did what we could in the end.”
“I’m happy with the weekend and want to carry this onwards.”
