Patrik Pasma claimed his maiden British Formula 4 victory as he led an Arden 1-2-3 in the opening race of the weekend at Rockingham.

Pasma led from lights to flag, setting the fastest lap of the race on his way to the chequered flag. After a strong start, he pulled away from his battling team-mates to finish more than two seconds ahead of the rest of the field.

Jack Doohan took second, holding onto the position despite pressure from fellow Red Bull junior Dennis Hauger, who passed championship leader Kiren Jewiss on the opening lap.

After falling behind Hauger, Jewiss found himself under attack from title rival Ayrton Simmons, who managed an impressive opening lap after starting eighth. Simmons managed to put his JHR Developments run car ahead of Jewiss, only to run wide and allow Jewiss to get back alongside him. Jewiss couldn’t hold onto the position and fell back to fifth, but remained on Simmons’ tail throughout the race.

Sebastian Priaulx and Jonathan Hoggard joined the pair to make it a four-car train for fourth, but Simmons held onto fourth to close the gap to Jewiss in the championship fight.

Jewiss finished fifth, ahead of Priaulx, Hoggard and Manuel Sulaiman.

Paavo Tonteri and Josh Skelton rounded out the top 10.
