F2 - Saturday Report

Qualifying One: Sureshwaren 12th (1:35.120) +0.985s
Race One: Sureshwaren 16th (+50.177s)

After finishing 6th in second practice, Parthiva was probably hoping for a similar result in the first qualifying of the weekend. However he wasn't able to achieve his potential during the session and so he lined up 12th on the grid, still with a great chance of points though.

Unfortunately at the start of the race Parthiva had a very poor start and quickly found himself at the back (17th) in the light drizzle. As the rain eased, the Lycamobile-backed driver had a great battle Max Snegirev and quickly caught upto to Plamen Kralev in 15th. Although by that stage it was too late and the Indian finished in 16th place.

The promising thing for Parthiva is that the pace wasn't actually too bad during the race; just his start let him down - as did a low qualifying position. Hopefully he can have a much smoother qualifying two and race two tomorrow! We wish him the best of luck!
