F4 British Championship

Norris’ Brands Hatch Win Reinstated

1 Mins read

Lando Norris has been given his race victory back after an appeal from his Carlin Motorsport team, to the stewards about overtaking under yellow flags.

During the third race on Sunday the 5th April, Norris had qualified on pole. However; a poor start from the 15 year old saw him drop to 3rd by the first corner, behind James Pull and Matheus Leist.

Further around the lap, Norris overtook second place Leist as the safety car was called. Norris would later continue in second position and chased after race leader Pull. After the second safety car, Norris got the better getaway and displaced Pull for the lead of the race.

The first safety car had been called after a crash at the hairpin involving Gustavo Myasava that saw the Brazilian needing to be pulled out of the gravel trap.

The decision means that Norris retakes the lead of the championship. It has mostly affected Pull who will lose the most points as a result.

Norris now has 53 points, with Dan Ticktum on 48, Ricky Collard on 43, Pull on 37 and Leist 34.

However; Ticktum received 5 points from his qualifying session in Donington, as a result, the two drivers go into the race on equal points with Ticktum on pole and Norris in 2nd.
