The second round of the Formula Renault 1.6 Series took place at the famous F1 track in Spa-Francorchamps
With the weather playing it’s part the weekend was made even better by the continuous sunshine. And to make things even better, the warm-ups began positively with me finishing third in the first session and second in the next.
On Saturday morning the qualifying began with me being able to finish 5th place in the first race and 3rd in the second. I knew at this point it was time for me to push myself and get onto the podium for the first time.
With the race finally beginning after lunch. I made a great start and kept my speed up till the end of the race. The hard work had eventually paid off for me and I had reached my goals of finishing on the podium. The ceremony was an amazing moment for me and I enjoyed every second of it but now it was time for me to set my focus on the second race on the Sunday.
Unfortunately my car suffered technical problems in the warm-up which led me to go back into the pits and starting the race from the back of the pack. On the bright side I could only move forward and it proved to be a good training exercise for overtaking with me finishing 12th from 21 drivers.
