With some of his ADAC Formula 4 rivals unable to challenge, it was Marcus Armstrong who took his second win of the year at Oschersleben. The result closes him up to the top two in the standings as many regular leaders failed to score.

After making such an effort to get pole, Kami Laliberte threw it all away, as he stalled on the start line, dropping to fifteenth in the opening lap. With Julian Hanses demoted, it would be Armstrong who assumed the lead.

Armstrong though was not without company, struggling to break away from Jonathan Aberdein and Felipe Drugovich. With the Brazilian in the championship fight, he would be determined to find a way past Aberdein and close down his rival.

Behind them, Fabio Scherer soon found himself in a lonely fourth as Juri Vips held up a queue of cars in fifth. Despite his troubled start to the season, it was David Malukas who provided genuine pressure on the series leader along with a queue of three cars.

As the race approached its final few minutes, it soon became a two car battle with Aberdein maintaining the pressure on Armstrong.

The Kiwi was wise to the move though taking his second win of the year from Aberdein and Drugovich.

The battle for fourth would go to the end though as Scherer fell back, allowing Malukas to overtake Vips as Kim-Luis Schramm, Sophia Floersch and Frederik Vesti also in the queue. Tenth went to Michael Waldherr holding a queue of his own.
