F4-s Victory for Al Fahim

Chris Davies on 18th November 2018

The second F4-s race of the weekend was won by the Victory Team’s Ahmed Al-Fahim after claiming pole position with a lap of 53.61 sec with Britain’s Sam Whittle in second place.

Al-Fahim led the way towards the first turn buoy and he completed the first lap 1.88 seconds of Whittle with Ben Jelf in third.

But the yellow flag was raised almost immediately before action restarted on lap three without yesterday’s winner Rudolf Mihaldinecz and Bingchen Wu on the race course.

Al-Fahim began to pull away from Whittle and Jelf Max Stilz running in fourth.

Seven surviving boats held station through lap eight of 20 with the leader extending his advantage to 5.45 seconds.

There were no changes to the running order after lap 12 and Al-Fahim managed to hold on to his lead to claim the win over Whittle by the margin of 4.36 seconds.

Team Abu Dhabi’s Mohammed Al-Mehairbi finished the race in sixth position and collected five valuable championship points, his main rival Max Stilz moved one point ahead of the Emirati in what is developing into a gripping tussle for F4-s supremacy heading to the four remaining races in the UAE in December.
