Ahmad Al Fahim was in a class of his own when he cruised to victory from pole position in the first of 2 F4-s races in Portimao this weekend.
Max Stilz fought his way through the field to take a worthy second, while China’s Bingchen Wu took third.
Bianca Bastin missed the race due to rolling her boat in free practice, she is all okay.
