Victor Martins felt his victory in race two at the Red Bull Ring was ‘amazing’ but it is now up to him and his R-ace GP team to keep the momentum going into the second half of the Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 championship season.

Having finished ninth in race one, the Frenchman became the seventh different winner of the season last Sunday, although he was forced to battle for the position early on against Lorenzo Colombo before making the decisive move into turn four, after which he controlled the race from the front.

Colombo was ultimately deemed to have jumped the start so was handed a penalty that relegated him to sixth in the final result, meaning Renault Sport Academy drivers, of which Martins is one, filled out the podium positions, with Max Fewtrell finishing second and Christian Lundgaard third.

“It was a difficult race, but really amazing!” said Martins on RenaultSport.com.  “It just proved the quality of this category and the excellent level of the drivers.

“I didn’t get the best of starts. I didn’t make the right choice heading to turn one, but I managed to get a strong exit to re-pass Lorenzo at turn three. After that, I had to stay focused just until the finish and I want to thank the team for the incredible work they’ve done.

“This is an excellent result as we head into the second half of the season, but we will have to work twice as hard to keep this momentum going.”
