1 Mins read

Australian youngest Joseph Mawson took his second victory of the weekend in race three of the French F4 event around the Bugatti circuit at Le Mans. Danish driver Lasse Sorensen finished second, with Anglo-Swiss driver Felix Hirsiger in third.

On a damp track, it was Hirsiger who lead away from pole position, with Sorensen and Dorian Boccalacci both getting ahead of front-row starter Mawson on the first lap. Sorensen took the lead on lap four, passing Hirsiger at the end of the pits straight, with Boccalacci, Mawson and Amaury Richard keeping close company.

Mawson made a great move to climb ahead of Boccalacci, and then closed down Dane Sorensen to win by 1.381s. Hirsiger claimed third ahead of Boccalacci and Richard, while Russian Denis Bulatov finished sixth. Paul Hokfelt Jr made another stunning climb through the field having started last, finishing seventh, ahead of race two winner Bryan Elpitiya. Frenchman Valentin Hasse-Clot was ninth ahead of Finn Niclas Nylund.

Mawson leaves Le Mans with the championship lead on 67 points, with Hirsiger second on 43 points, with Boccolacci third on 37 points. Hirsiger leads the junior category on 58 points.
