21-year-old Alberto Comparato drove from 19th place on the grid to finish eighth at the UIM F1H2o Grand Prix of Portugal today.
Comparato was forced to sit out qualifying yesterday after a faulty fuel injector left him sidelined.
However, the 2018 UIM F2 World Champion shrugged of that issue, put in the drive of the afternoon and scored points on his F1H2o debut.
