Pourchaire flies to dominant win in F2 Feature Race

Pourchaire flies to dominant win in F2 Feature Race

Theo Pourchaire powered to a dominant victory in the Feature Race of this weekend’s FIA Formula 2 Championship, being held in support of the Formula 1 Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix 2023 at Bahrain International Circuit (BIC) in Sakhir.

Starting from pole, the ART Grand Prix ace held on to his lead masterfully, giving up first place only for his mandatory pit stop but regaining the advantage just two laps after heading back out onto the track.

From there, Pourchaire ran his own race and built a massive gap of nearly 20 seconds from the rest of the field en route to taking the chequered flag after 32 laps.

Pourchaire won in one hour one minute 10.926 seconds. He was a clear 19.666 seconds ahead of runner-up and F2 Sprint Race winner Ralph Boschung of Campos Racing.

Zane Maloney of Rodin Carlin completed the podium placers 31.587s behind.

Kush Maini of Campos Racing was fourth, Richard Verschoor of Van Amersfoort Racing fifth, and Arthur Leclerc of DAMS sixth.

The top 10 was rounded out by Isack Hadjar of Hitech Pulse-Eight, Ayumu Iwasa of DAMS, Enzo Fittipaldi of Rodin Carlin and Van Amersfoort Racing’s Juan Manuel Correa—all of whom claimed all-important points.
