Lundqvist wins red flagged race
Linus Lundqvist secured his maiden pole position and first victory for Double R Racing team in the British F4 Championship at Donington Park. Following a race meeting to forget at Brands Hatch during the season-opener, a result of continual engine problems, Swedish youngster was determined to show his true performance and duly delivered with pole position for rounds four and six.
Despite missing out on the win in Race 1 on Saturday, Lundqvist celebrated his maiden podium with second place. Bouncing back from an unfortunate retirement in Race 2, the reigning Formula STCC Nordic Champion won the rain-affected final contest. The result wasn’t celebrated due to round six being red flagged following a very nasty accident involving Billy Monger and Patrik Pasma.
Monger has been extracted from the car after suffering leg injuries and airlifted to the Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham for further examination. Pasma was fully conscious and immediately taken to the on-site medical centre. He has since been taken to the Queen’s Medical Centre for further assessment.
“Everyone’s thoughts are with Billy and Patrik and all at Double R wish them both a speedy recovery after today’s accident, that’s the most important thing to say and the only thing that matters after an incident like that”, said Double R team principal Anthony ‘Boyo’ Hieatt.
