Formula 4 UAE Championship
Abu Dhabi Round 2  at Yas Marina Circuit
December 2016





Dennis Layher, Team Motopark Team Manager:
“Clearly the challenge this weekend got harder and the competition is getting closer.



The other teams are doing a good job and they are learning quite quick, and we have to be careful to keep our pace.



And Jonathan also knows that Logan is not far away to challenge him for the wins, and one mistake is enough for Logan to make the jump. So they both challenge each other and that is all part of the learning.”





Sean Babington, Energy Dubai F4 Racing Team (#4):
“It’s been a really good weekend. We’ve have Peter Sieber this weekend which has made a big improvement on our car. It’s a like a totally different car to what I raced in Dubai last month.



We’re getting closer and closer, getting good starts and having a bit of fun learning the race craft in cars, since this is still only my second race meeting out of karting.



The championship is really taking off with two new drivers joining, and there’s more local sponsors supporting us like Kinnersley Kent who helped me this weekend, so I’m happy to repay the faith with some good results.”



RESULTS: Race 1: 4th, Race 2: 3rd, Race 3: 3rd, Race 4: 3rd

 





Oscar Piastri, Dragon F4 (#88):
“Making my circuit racing debut at Yas Marina Circuit is quite an extravagant debut but it’s been really enjoyable. It’s a big weekend in terms of learning which is why we’re here and everyone at Dragon F4 has helped so much.




It’s been tough physically from the I'm used to in karting, but having so much track time across all the practice sessions and racing really means you can develop your setup and develop your driving a lot more.



In practice I was there or thereabouts with the Motopark boys on one-lap pace, but I just need to work on a bit of consistency. So once I get that sorted and learn how to race a bit more in this type of car we should be up the front more often.”

RESULTS: Race 1: 6th, Race 2: 5th, Race 3: 4th, Race 4: 5th

 

 

 

Round 3 of the F4UAE Championship will be held at the Dubai Autodrome Circuit from January 27-28 where Races 8 to 10 of the season will be contested.
