Team Abu Dhabi's Shaun Torrente is topping the 2019 UIM F1H2o World Championship standings with just one more race to go and the only driver that can stop him winning back-to-back titles is Sweden's Jonas Andersson.
Shaun Torrente not only won the Grand Prix of China in Xiamen this afternoon, more importantly to him and Team Abu Dahabi, he regained the lead of the 2019 UIM F1H2o World Championship.

2018 UIM F1H2o World Champion, Shaun Torrente was back to his absolute best in the Grand Prix of China qualifying this morning, when he took Pole Position with a stunning 50.87 lap time.
Lap times were far quicker than yesterday due to less wind, Torrente's time was mighty compared with the 52.26 that Alex Carella posted for yesterday's pole.
After a lengthy summer recess, the UIM F1H2o World Championship is back with vengeance this weekend in China, and the title race is heating up.
Few would have predicted that Jonas Andersson would be topping the leader board at this stage of the season, he currently holds a 3-point advantage over defending champion Shaun Torrente after his second place in the Grand Prix of Xiamen today.
