Dark clouds loomed over the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya prior to the start of the Saturday feature race, with on and off drizzle of rain which meant that the track was partially wet and slippery. Max was a victim of the chaos after the start, came onto the slippery outside line and spun into the gravel. Unfortunately he couldn’t drive himself out of it again and his race ended prematurely.
The ten thousands at the Circuit Barcelona-Catalunya saw an eventful race that was interrupted by several Safety Car periods. Although the track was damp from some rain in the morning, all drivers started on the medium slicks since there was no forecast for more rain. After his bad luck in the Feature race on Saturday, Max’ main target was to get through and finish. A task he managed well, making up places and finishing 12th, with the points in sight.
After this second F2 race weekend, Max has a total of 16 points and is 11th in the championship.
Max’ review race 2 (Sunday):
“Due to my accident on Saturday we had to start from the back end, not the ideal position. However I gave it all and gained some places at the start. In the race I made up some spots and have to say, that under the circumstances, P12 is the best I could do. When running in the tight midfield-‘pack’ with many cars around, the tyres degrade much faster, therefore P12 was the maximum today.”
Max’ review race 1 (Saturday):
“I had a good start and managed to make up some spots. Then it got really tight and I was caught out. It’s a real shame, because I could have improved in the race. With a bit of luck you can actually score some points in these tricky conditions. In my case unfortunately I didn’t have that chance so we just have to look ahead and forget about the bad luck.”
