Blaze Performance driver Max Stilz took his first opportunity of this weekend’s Grand Prix of Sharjah to seal the F4-S Drivers and Teams Championships writes Nigel Quilter.
In the first of two races, fifth place for the German driver was enough to put him into an unassailable points’ advantage over his main rival coming into the race, Team Abu Dhabi’s Mohammed Al Mehairbi, who finished in fourth.
The yellow flag interrupted race was won by F1 Atlantic’s pole-sitter Harvey Smith who led from start-to-finish to grab his first win of the season, the result moving the Briton up into second place in the championship standings two points ahead of Al Mehairbi whose teammate Rashed Al remeithi finished second.
Third place went to Team Sweden’s Mathilda Wiberg, with Victory’s Ahmad Al Fahim rounding out the top six.
