Armaan Ebrahim sixth in Formula 2 championship at the Brands Hatch circuit

first_imgArmaan Ebrahim completed a profitable weekend with a sixth place finish in the 10th round of the Formula 2 championship at the Brands Hatch circuit in England on Sunday.The 22-year old had secured a ninth place and two points in Saturday’s ninth round. He has a total of 16 points, including the six he had secured in the second round at Silverstone in April.Armaan was made to work hard for his sixth place as he was under pressure from Switzerland’s Christopher Zanella, winner of two races this season and currently second in the standings.Earlier, in the qualifying session, Armaan had a good run as he posted the eighth quickest time for a grid position ahead of Zanella.Reviewing his performance, Armaan said: “I am obviously pleased to finish both races in top 10 this weekend and hopefully, this is a turnaround in my campaign.”I had a pretty decent qualifying session, but I could have done better. I ran into traffic when I wanted to use the boost for my flying lap and I had to back off. I wanted to do another flying lap, but the threads on the tyres had worn off. In the race, I made two places early on, and then held off Zanella to protect my sixth place. Overall, it was quite satisfying, though I will say it could have always been better,” he said.”Going into the remaining three rounds, I feel quite confident.”With inputs from Agencies.last_img
