Grégoire Saucy was delighted to bounce back from his race one disqualification at the Circuit Paul Ricard in the best possible way, with the Swiss racer taking his fourth victory of the Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine season on Sunday.

The ART Grand Prix driver had dominated Saturday’s opening event, only for a technical issue out of his control seeing him thrown out of the race.  However, despite the lost points, he rebounded superbly, taking pole position on Sunday morning before taking another lights-to-flag win later that afternoon.

Saucy says it was pleasing to come back fighting after the disqualification, and he feels his victory and the way he drove throughout Sunday’s final race of the weekend proved that the anomaly on the car on Saturday was not the reason behind his victory.

“I am really happy and here I was the fastest,” said Saucy.  “This demonstrates that the issue with my car yesterday and consequent disqualification had nothing to do with my great performance.

“We have worked hard with the team and all the people around me before the season and these are the results. Evidently I aim to win the Championship.”

Saucy now heads the Drivers’ Championship by an extended margin, with the Swiss now on one hundred and ten points leaving France, twenty-three points clear of R-ace GP’s Zane Maloney, with Isack Hadjar and Hadrien David (both also R-ace GP) within six points of their team-mate.

The next race weekend is in three week’s time when Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine takes to the track at Circuit Zandvoort in the Netherlands.
