Mixed weekend for Lundgaard and García in Barcelona

23.09.2017: Renault Sport Academy Drivers Christian Lundgaard and Marta García endured an up and down weekend as the Spanish F4 Championship travelled to

Renault Sport Academy Drivers Christian Lundgaard and Marta García endured an up and down weekend as the Spanish F4 Championship travelled to the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.



Christian’s lead at the top of the championship was cut to 42 points after he managed a second and a fourth place across the two races.



The Dane was uncharacteristically off the pace for much of the weekend, starting fourth and fifth in the races. In the opener Christian could not quite make the decisive pass on team-mate Bent Viscaal who took the flag by half a second.



Marta again topped the timesheets in practice but could not quite replicate that pace in qualifying and the races.



From seventh on the grid in race one, Marta finished eighth, whilst in race two the Spanish teen came in ninth after starting sixth.



Christian Lundgaard:
“It was a frustrating weekend for me. The pace was average and I was surprised to see others so fast in qualifying. I did my best during the races finishing a narrow second and fourth. Now I’m switching my focus onto whatever comes next.”



Marta García: “
My free practice sessions were very good and I had a decent qualifying. But then the races weren’t great and I didn’t have the pace to be in top five. I finished eighth in the first race and then in the second race a driver crashed into me when I was seventh and that put me back to ninth. So overall it’s frustrating but there are plenty more races left on the calendar.”
