Liam Lawson takes win, runner-up honours and Euroformula Open Rookie trophy at Monza

14.10.2019: the last race of the season - Fourth win of the season for the New-Zealander who beats Dunner (TMM) for second in the standings and Lundqvist (Double R) in the Rookie Trophy the last race of the season

- Fourth win of the season for the New-Zealander who beats Dunner (TMM) for second in the standings and Lundqvist (Double R) in the Rookie Trophy

- Tsunoda (Motopark) and Natori (Carlin) complete last podium

- Hahn (Carlin) and Doohan (Double R) escape spectacular accident

- Last race for the Dallara F312/F317, an 8-season successful era comes to an end

Liam Lawson won the final Euroformula Open race of the season at Monza Eni Circuit, sealing second in the overall standings and the Rookie title in the process.

The race marked the last appearance of the Dallara F317 chassis, which has been faithfully used in two iterations by Euroformula since 2012.

Poleman Teppei Natori led the first couple of laps for Carlin, eventually conceding the position when Motopark’s Lawson completed a move at the first chicane. The fight at the front of the field only got more intense after that, with Natori’s team-mate Christian Hahn and Motopark’s Japanese pair Marino Sato and Yuki Tsunoda getting involved.

Sato briefly attacked Natori for second, but he was then shuffled down the order while Tsunoda, from 10th on the grid, came into play. He successfully passed Natori and then made it around the outside of team-mate Lawson at the second chicane.


Moments later the race was neutralised when Hahn went wide at Lesmo 2 and rebounded into the path of Double R Racing’s Jack Doohan, who ended up rolling. He was well protected by the Dallara F317 car, and thankfully both drivers were quickly released from the circuit medical centre after checks.

Only two laps remained when racing resumed, after Billy Monger had tapped out Carlin team-mate Nicolai Kjaergaard while behind the safety car, and Lawson passed Red Bull stablemate Tsunoda at the restart to ultimately take victory.

Double R’s Linus Lundqvist almost made it past Natori for third at the start of the last lap, but couldn’t find a way through and therefore couldn’t prevent Lawson from being crowned rookie champion.

Overall champion Sato finished fifth, while a frantic last two laps resulted in championship debutant Kyle Kirkwood matching RP Motorsport’s best result of the season in sixth, and Motopark’s Niklas Krutten finishing in seventh after punting off Fortec Motorsports’ Calan Williams at Ascari.

Eighth place for Lukas Dunner meant the Teo Martín Motorsport driver conceded second in the standings to Lawson, while Carlin’s Ido Cohen and Drivex School’s Rui Andrade completed the top 10.

1. Sato, 307 points; 2. Lawson, 179; 3. Dunner, 176; 4. Tsunoda, 151; 5. Lundquist, 144; 5. 6. Natori, 113; etc

1. Lawson, 91 p.; 2. Lundqvist, 83; 3. Tsunoda, 73; 4. Natori, 67; 5. Kjaergaard, 63; 6. Doohan, 55; 7. Moger, 53; etc

1. Team Motopark, 245 p.; 2. Carlin, 89; 3. Teo Martín Motorsport, 64; 4. Double R, 62; 5. Fortec, 7.
