Victory Team’s Alex Carella was left a pleased man after his team opened its account with a gutsy fourth place at the Grand Prix of Portugal, the penultimate round of the 2018 UIM F2 World Championship.
The Italian, who has won four World Championships in F1H20, told me after the race held on the scenic River Douro:
This was not an easy event for us.
Our full focus was on finishing the race as we came to Portugal with a competitive set-up.
It’s a great feeling to open our account for this season with some crucial points.
I made a late entry into the championship at Tonsberg last month, but we had every intention to be competitive and even win races.
I feel we have reached a stage now where we can truly be among the top challengers for the UIM F2 World Championship in 2019.
