Max points for Max Fewtrell at Hockenheim

23.09.2018: At the conclusion of a very eventful race, Max Fewtrell (R-ace GP) takes his third consecutive win in the Formula Renault Eurocup.

At the conclusion of a very eventful race, Max Fewtrell (R-ace GP) takes his third consecutive win in the Formula Renault Eurocup.



 The British member of the Renault Sport Academy claims his sixth success of the season ahead of rookie Oscar Piastri (Arden Motorsport) and Yifei Ye (Josef Kaufmann Racing) and extends his lead over Yifei Ye and Christian Lundgaard (MP Motorsport) heading to the Barcelona season finale.




Lundgaard claims his third pole of the season



Despite overnight showers, the Group B drivers chose to qualify on slick tyres. Late in the session, Max Fewtrell posted the best time ahead of Neil Verhagen (Tech 1 Racing) and Alex Peroni (MP Motorsport), but Group A was quicker under the leadership of Christian Lundgaard, Yifei Ye and Oscar Piastri.



Thanks to his lap of 1:38.080s, Christian Lundgaard took the pole ahead of title rivals, Max Fewtrell and Yifei Ye. Neil Verhagen and Oscar Piastri completed the top five and they were followed by Alex Peroni, Logan Sargeant (R-ace GP), Thomas Maxwell (JD Motorsport), Charles Milesi (R-ace GP) and Victor Martins (R-ace GP).




Three on the trot for Fewtrell



Despite strong winds and a few sprinkles, the slick tyres were, once again, the way to go. When the lights went out, Christian Lundgaard held on to the lead, but Max Fewtrell was an immediate threat. Behind them, Yifei Yi held on to third place, while Oscar Piastri got the better of Neil Verhagen.



The start of the race was very hectic. Logan Sargeant overtook Neil Verhagen and Victor Martins for fifth place. On lap eight, Victor Martins saw his titles hopes vanish when his race came to an end in the gravel trap. The safety car was sent out to allow for the French driver’s car to be removed.


While Christian Lundgaard kept Max Fewtrell under control at the restart, the Dane was let down coming out of the hairpin by his transmission, on the same wheel he had contact with Victor Martins on Saturday. From there, Max Fewtrell was in the lead, while Oscar Piastri made the most of the confusion in the field to surprise Yifei Ye.



Max Fewtrell went on for the win ahead of Oscar Piastri and Yifei Ye. From 14th on the start grid, Lorenzo Colombo put on an overtaking demonstration in the final laps to move up to fourth place before threatening Yifei Ye. Logan Sargeant was fifth, followed by Neil Verhagen, Thomas Maxwell, Charles Milesi and Eliseo Martinez (AVF by Adrián Vallés), who finished in the points for the first time. Arthur Rougier (Fortec Motorsports) completed the top ten.




Quotes


Max Fewtrell (R-ace GP): “
It was not an easy race! Something black came out of the exhaust of Christian’s car a few laps before I overtook him. Thankfully, I was able to avoid contact when he slowed down at the exit of the hairpin.



These last few weekends have gone really well. We’ve always known that we have the pace and we showed it at the start of the year. At times, we have been unlucky this season. It had cost us a lot of points, but we have never given up and I am delighted with how strong we’ve been since the end of the summer break.”



Oscar Piastri (Arden Motorsport):
“The wind gusts made this race very difficult. I think we were all just trying to stay on the track in the final laps! I didn’t get a very good restart, but I caught Logan’s draft before making the most of a small mistake from Yifei and a problem for Christian.


This second place finish is a good result to wrap up an excellent weekend. I hope I can reach the highest step on the podium in Barcelona, but my rivals are not going to be easy to beat!”



Yifei Ye (Josef Kaufmann Racing):
“This isn‘t the result we were hoping for even though it was hard to manage the wind at the end of the race. After setting the best time in our qualifying group yesterday, we wanted to do the same to get the pole.



Unfortunately, I had a problem changing gears in the last corner of my final flying lap. It cost me a tenth of a second and the difference for the pole was 0.022s. It is a shame, but the title still isn’t settled. There are two more races to run and we still have a chance.”
