Sergio Sette Camara took pole position and scored a second-place in the Feature Race for DAMS’ home FIA Formula 2 Championship event at the Paul Ricard Circuit in France. Nicholas Latifi scored crucial points to help extend the lead in the team’s standings.
Sergio Sette Camara: “It’s been a strong weekend at Paul Ricard. We got our first pole position of the season, which is good for confidence. The team gave me a nice car. I struggled a bit at the start of the Feature Race, which is something I still have issues with but we are doing everything to improve. We’re slightly getting better and better, still need to confirm it in future rounds but it’s a feeling I have. A big thank you to the team for always being professional and working hard, it looks like we’re going in the right direction.”
Nicholas Latifi: “Not the best weekend for me unfortunately. In qualifying we were a bit unlucky not being able to set a lap on the second set of tyres but it could have been much worse than sixth. I was confident I’d be able to move forward because our race pace is always good, but this is the first time this season where I just didn’t have the speed and struggled to make up places. We still scored some important points for the championship and we aim to come back strong at the Red Bull Ring.”
The sixth round of the 2019 FIA Formula 2 Championship will take place in Spielberg, Austria on 28-30 June.
