F2 - Sunday Report

Qualifying Two: Sureshwaren 16th (1:57.933) +5.390s
Race Two: Sureshwaren 14th (+50.177s) +1 lap

Qualifying two for the second round (4th race) of the F2 championship was held on a very wet track under hailstorm conditions. This put Parthiva Sureshwaren at a disadvantage as he hasn't had enough practice on a wet track at this circuit (we know that Parthiva takes a long time to get used to a circuit/track conditions). He qualified 16th.

The race however started very well for the Indian - on a dry track too. He made a good start and was in a great battle with David Zhu, Max Snegirev and Plamen Kralev for 12th place - it was a battle that lasted the whole race! Although the track was dry though there were still puddles on the serrated curbing and this caught out Max Snegirev on the penultimate lap as he spun the car; unfortunately the same fate befell Parthiva on the final lap too. The car spun round and Parthiva lost a heap of time, eventually finishing 14th.

It's a disastrous weekend for Parthiva Sureshwaren as he really did have great pace this weekend but was unable to score points - the points drought goes on! Hopefully though at the very least Parthiva can take some confidence from his outright pace this weekend and try to improve for the next races at the Nürburgring on the 26th and 27th May.
