Amweg wins reverse-grid race as Hubert retires after contact

by Valentin Khorounzhiy

Severin Amweg made the best use of his reverse-grid pole position for race two at Val de Vienne, holding off opposition for 15 laps to take his first win of the year.

Amweg, who secured his first French F4 podium in the reverse-grid Spa race last month, fought off a fierce challenge from Jules Gounon and Tristan Viidas, narrowly edging out the Estonian to the checkered flag.

Viidas himself inherited second after Gounon lost control on the final laps of the race due to oil on-track, letting both Viidas and Matevos Isaakyan through as he found himself settling for fourth.

Amaury Rossero managed fifth, keeping Dennis Anoschin and Ivan Kostyukov behind. Simo Muhonen picked up the points in eighth with Neal Van Vaerenbergh and Tom le Coq closing out the top ten.

Anthoine Hubert picked up the point for the fastest lap, set by the championship leader as he was fighting through the field from reverse-grid tenth. He was, however, collected by Marco de Perettion lap seven, which ended Hubert’s impressive streak of top-ten finishes.
