Maiden victory for Bhaitech in Hockenheim, Teams title for ART Grand Prix

08.11.2020: Starting from pole, Lorenzo Colombo countered the excellent start of Victor Martins (ART Grand Prix) to score his first win of the year and the first for Bhaitech Racing in the Formula Renault Eurocup. Runner-up finisher Victor Martins increased his lead


Starting from pole, Lorenzo Colombo countered the excellent start of Victor Martins (ART Grand Prix) to score his first win of the year and the first for Bhaitech Racing in the Formula Renault Eurocup. Runner-up finisher Victor Martins increased his lead in the general classification following the retirement of his rival Caio Collet (R-ace GP) while ART Grand Prix wraps up the teams title in its return season to the category.



Lorenzo Colombo led the way in qualifying for race two at Hockenheim. Despite missing the tests on Friday, the Italian driver scored his second pole this season with a time of 1:36.956s ahead of Victor Martins. The last driver standing in the way of the Frenchman’s title run, Caio Collet lined up eighth on the grid after a clutch problem was fixed just minutes before the session started.



When the lights went out, Lorenzo Colombo was beaten off the line by Victor Martins, but he tucked in behind the Frenchman and retook the lead at the hairpin. Further back, Franco Colapinto (MP Motorsport) passed both Hadrien David (MP Motorsport) and Paul Aron (ART Grand Prix) as Caio Collet, who moved up to sixth place, looked on.



The Brazilian was the driver to watch as he first overtook Paul Aron, then picked up another position when Hadrien David dropped out with a broken suspension. Despite his efforts, his comeback drive ended on lap seven due to a faulty sensor. The safety car was called out to allow for the retrieval of his car parked in the grass.



Lorenzo Colombo did well to control the field at the restart and soon pulled away to go on to take the first win for Bhaitech Racing in the Formula Renault Eurocup, making it six different teams with a race win this season. The Italian driver also won for the first time since July 2019 at Spa-Francorchamps.



Victor Martins and Franco Colapinto joined him on the podium, as did rookie category winner Alex Quinn (Arden Motorsport) after his move on Paul Aron. Starting ninth and twelfth, Michael Belov (R-ace GP) and David Vidales (JD Motorsport) finished sixth and seventh respectively ahead of Ugo de Wilde (Arden Motorsport). William Alatalo (JD Motorsport) overtook Reshad De Gerus (Arden Motorsport) for ninth at the restart.



In the general classification, Victor Martins now has a 44-point lead from Caio Collet heading to the final two races of the season. In the rookie category, the title will come down to Alex Quinn and David Vidales, who are currently separated by just six points while ART Grand Prix has clinched the Teams title.


The last page in the 50th season in the Formula Renault history will be written next week at Circuit Paul Ricard (November 12-15).








Quotes

 

Lorenzo Colombo (Bhaitech Racing): "I’m really happy because I’ve been waiting so long for this! Today, I only made one mistake by spinning the wheels too much at the start, but I managed to take the lead back from Victor. I immediately saw that we had the speed. We’ve had a lot of ups and downs this year, so I am also thrilled for everyone in the team!"




Victor Martins (ART Grand Prix)
: "My good start allowed me to take the lead, but unfortunately it wasn’t enough to win the race. I think I didn’t take enough risks to stay in front at the hairpin. I knew that Lorenzo had nothing to lose while I had to score points. But overall, it was a very good weekend and we are going to stay focused on winning the title in France next week!"



Franco Colapinto (MP Motorsport):
"I am very happy to be on the podium again. It’s an excellent result and we scored a lot of points in the battle for the third place in the general classification as we have created a bit of a gap with the guys behind. We will try to finish the season in style at the Circuit Paul Ricard next week!”



Alex Quinn (Arden Motorsport)
: "It was a great weekend in our quest for the rookie title. We just have to keep the pressure on Franco to try to take third place in the general classification. I wanted to do it in this race, but the small changes made to the car weren’t enough today. We will keep working and I hope we will maximise our potential next time!"



Mathieu Zangarelli (Team Manager, ART Grand Prix)
: "This title rewards all the work done by the whole team. There are ten of us working on this programme, but it is also the work of a few people internally, so it is a truly overall satisfaction. With ART Grand Prix’s savoir-faire, we thought we would be able to fight right from this year, but it’s great to have done so well.



We have three drivers who have done us proud, whether it be Paul, Grégoire or Victor. We have managed to maintain a strong team and I congratulate all those who have worked hard to win this title. On the drivers’ side, we have a 44-point lead. If we keep working as we do, there is no reason why we can’t go all the way but we have seen in the last two weeks with Caio that anything can happen. It is all looking very good, but we have to stay focused."
