For the final round of the French F4 season, it was championship leader Valentin Moineault who claimed a double pole position. The result put him in the best possible position to claim the title.
Behind him on the grid will be his sole remaining championship rival; Sacha Fenestraz, who knows only an exceptional weekend will be enough to secure the crown as he trails Moineault by 59 points in the overall standings.
He’ll have his work cut out though, with Moineault having finished in the top two for the first and third races of the weekend, for the last four meetings.
Moineault had been the driver to set the pace early on and managed to pull out a gap to his rivals. Fenestraz would hit back later on, but couldn’t do enough to reduce the 0.047 gap to his rival in the final few minutes.
With Gabriel Aubry behind the top two, it ensures the front runners in the championship will fight it out at the front for race one and three, while Simo Laaksonen will also line up both races in fourth.
In the overall standings, Louis Gachot continued his smooth form from practice to claim fifth in front of Reuben Kressner. While behind them, the returning Alexey Korneev is seventh with Giuliano Alesi struggling, down in eighth.
Meanwhile the two rookies of Hugo Chevalier and Theo Coicaud will be tenth and eighteenth respectively.
