Weekend sweep-up

Formula Renault 3.5
Race One: Bianchi 2nd (4th)
Race Two: Bianchi 17th (3rd)

A mixed weekend for Sahara Force India's reserve driver. In race one the Frenchman had a good race, finishing 2nd for the second consecutive race having started 4th on the grid.

For race two Jules qualified 3rd and was running well until a huge accident (thankfully all drivers were okay) brought out the red flag. On the restart Jules couldn't get away from the line, putting him at the back. Disappointment for him.

Two points finishes from the first five races is not what Jules would have imagined going into the season, but he has been unlucky. The pace for the title is definitely there though, and this is backed up by the fact that in the last three races Jules has had the fastest lap.

Here's the standings at the moment:

Drivers Championship (1st-7th)
1) Sam Bird (70 pts)
2) Robin Frijns (61)
3) Nick Yelloly (51)
4) Marco Sørensen (45)
5) Kevin Magnussen (43)
6) Jules Bianchi (36)
7) Nico Müller (32)

With 12 races to go, it's all still to play for!

Indy Lights
Armaan Ebrahim had a decent weekend in the Indy Lights championship; qualifying 10th, finishing 10th and now he's upto 10th in the championship!

Drivers Championship (8th-12th)
8) Juan Pablo Garcia (117 pts)
9) Alon Day (113)
10) Armaan Ebrahim (97)
11) David Ostella (90)
12) Jorge Goncalvez (87)

In such a high-scoring series things can change so quickly - there's going to be alot of twists in this championship yet. It's worth noting that Armaan is the 5th-best place rookie.
