Ferdinand Habsburg secured the EuroFormula Open Rookie title at the Circuito de Jerez on Sunday, but saw his chance of the overall title end when Leonardo Pulcini clinch the crown with victory.

The Drivex School driver finished Saturday’s opening race down in seventh to see his overall title chances slip further out of his grasp, and despite taking pole position on Sunday, Pulcini assumed the lead at the start and remained in front until the chequered flag to secure the title.

Despite this, Habsburg was delighted to take the rookie title, and is aiming to close the season at the Circuit de Catalunya this weekend with a victory before he takes on the challenge of the Macau Grand Prix.

“It feels great to have secured my first title in my career this weekend and I’m really psyched for the DriveX team was well, because it is their rookie year in the championship too!” said Habsburg.

“The car felt great all weekend, all that was missing was good starts. The good thing is, we know what to work on to get another win in Barcelona.

“All this leads to a very good build-up to Macau. I’m very excited about my debut in Macau, but first we want to end the EuroFormula Open season on a high.”
