Championship Upside Down: Müller Wins Again

1 Mins read

Sven Müller swept from pole position to victory in the second Porsche Mobil1 Supercup race at Monza, as Philipp Eng’s series lead shrank once more.

Lechner Racing Middle East driver Müller had a somewhat simpler driver on Sunday morning, pole affording him the open space his devastating pace needed to be unleashed from the start.

Behind, proceedings for the podium places was somewhat more simply described than that of Saturday’s race, Matteo Cairoli from Team Project 1 holding off the eventual winner’s teammate Michael Ammermüller from lights out to flag fall.

For Philipp Eng, the destruction of his championship lead must have been painful to endure. As it happened, a seventh place garnered him enough points to maintain a slender advantage for Team Project 1. 137 points heading to the Circuit of the Americas.

In fact, slender may be underselling the 17 points he holds over MRS-GT Racing man Christian Engelhart. Engelhart finished fourth in race two but a poor race one performance is what has ultimately cost him a big chance this weekend.

Race winner Müller has edged into the title fight and sits with 110 points. So it is still advantage Eng. Definitely a slimmer one though. The form man is certainly Sven Müller though and ultimately, this author feels it is he who holds the key to the 2015 Porsche Mobil1 Supercup title’s destiny. He needs at least 28 more than Eng to steal the championship in America. 40 are available in Austin. Get set for a thriller!
