Formula 4 South East Asia (F4SEA) Championship at Sepang International Circuit

Driver Comments:

Jordan Love (AUS Car #79), Race Winner Race 1:

“I had a bad start to the race, which allowed Danial (Frost) to overtake me into the first sequence of corners.

After that point, I did manage to close in on Danial and with four laps to go I managed to close the gap to him, enough for me to make a move on him towards the end of the lap.

After taking the lead, I was able to put down some quick laps and opened up a gap. It was a really good battle and I really enjoyed it. I am really happy with this win but I also know that I need to work on my starts for the coming races.”

Danial Frost (SIN, Car # 66), P2 Race 1:

“I had a really good start and managed to get Jordan for the lead going into Turn 1. Even though he did fight back, I managed to hold on to the lead for a while.

Unfortunately, I made a mistake on Turn 9 on lap 6 and Jordan was able to jump me and overtake me. After that point, he pulled out a gap and I was not able to close on him, so I decided to concentrate on my pace and keep my position.

 He was just too fast and has far more experience than me. I am happy with the pace and will push for the remaining races.”

Faine Kahia (NZL, Car #55), P3 Race 1:

“I am super stoked with this podium result, especially after experiencing some problems in qualifying. I am delighted that we managed to sort them out for the race.

I did however have a bad start from P4 on the grid but managed to take P3 midway through. From that point, I was gaining on the leaders but the gap was simply too big and I did not have enough laps remaining!

 I learned a lot today and the car felt really good. Now I have to work on getting better starts.”

Muhammad Nalwalla (IND, Car # 46), Rookie Champion, Race 1:

“I am happy with this result, which is definitely a good start to the season and a positive direction. I was a bit nervous going into my very first formula race, but I really learned a lot from day and had a good race overall.

 This is a good motivation for me and hope that I can build on this result for the coming races.”

Peter Thompson, Chairman Triple A:

“What a fantastic start to a brand new Formula 4 South East Asia season and a relief that the first race went off without a hitch!

The drivers did brilliantly, especially those who have never raced an open-wheel formula-racing car!

Congratulations to Jordan for a great win and for claiming the accolade of being the first ever F4SEA race winner!”

Firhat Mokhzani, Managing Director Triple A:

“It was the perfect first race for the F4SEA championship. It was thrilling to watch with battles for the lead and battles up and down the order.

Congratulations to Jordan for claiming the first win and to Muhammad for becoming the first Rookie champion at the inaugural F4SEA championship race. This definitely sets us up for more great races to come!”

With the first of six races of the weekend already completed on Friday, the drivers will head into Saturday with three more races on the bill, with the final two races scheduled to take place on Sunday.
