The 2020 season has been one with many ups and downs for Alex. His expectations coming into the season were very high, too high perhaps, and in a gruelling 30 race season not everything has gone his way. But he has been a regular visitor to the podium and that left him in a position to end the championship in 4th place.
Brands Hatch is a track Alex enjoys as proven with his podium results at last year’s season finale and round two earlier this year. Taking in a nothing to lose approach, Alex turned his 6th from qualifying into a 5th in race one giving him a front row start for race two.
With a golden opportunity to end the year with a win Alex was not going to let it go and would go on to hold off the eventual champion to win the race! It was a point proven that Alex can win races and a resurgence of confidence that he needed. Alex would end the weekend with an 8th in a difficult race three but the win in race two was all he needed to end on a high and secure 4th in the championship.
It’s been a fantastic debut season for Frederick who has shown huge signs of progress in the latter stages of the season. Another brilliant weekend at Brands Hatch would see Frederick end with ten straight top ten finishes showing consistency that has only been reflected by the top two in the championship standings.
Although Fred did not score his best result of the season at Brands Hatch across the three races it was perhaps his best round. Two 6th place finishes and a 5th left Frederick with three 2nd place rookie finishes and the Rookie Vice Champion crown. It also helped him secure 9th in the championship achieving his goals set at the start of the season and he no doubt now becomes one to watch next season, wherever he chooses to race!
For roman the Brands finale was no his best round of the season but it certainly wasn’t his worst either! The Polish driver took three top ten results ending both the weekend and the season with a solid 6th place. For his first year of single seater racing it has been a learning experience and he has shown signs of progression throughout.
With three podiums over the course of the year Roman has had his taste of champagne and although he will be slightly disappointed he couldn’t end with one more overall an 8th place in the championship is a great result. What is next for Roman is yet to be decided, but he is back in British F4 in 2021 there’s no doubt he will be a very regular visitor to the podium.
