Nissany is always getting reprimands and penalties so after the number of years he hs been paying to drive surely its time he gave it away. His Father is a headcase as well IIRC.

In F2 at Monza...

Doohan on pole, hoping he's on the 2598 driver shortlist for the Alpine seat.

Lawson qualifies second fastest, saying, and I quote: "WHAT DO YOU MEAN THEY WANT HERTA? ARRGHGHFUCKSHT!"

So despite having a poor race today and ending with a DNF, Brazilian Felipe Drugovich has tied up the 2022 FIA F2 title.

His race was ended at Turn 5 after a collision with Amaury Cordeel broke his suspension, leaving him to return to the pitlane to watch the title battle unfold. It mattered not, for title rival Theo Pourchaire, in finishing in last place.... he had run wide on lap 14 as he tried to pass Liam Lawson for tenth and ended up receiving a penalty for his sins.

I guess now Drugovich has to find something to do next year. He cant do more in F2 now he is Champion, and he has no allegiance to any Driver Academies or other teams. :idunno:
But he does have a Superlicence! :wink:

That title win also makes him the first Brazilian to win the main feeder series title since Bruno Junqueira took the F3000 title in 2000. :wink:

So what next?



Oh by the way Vips won today's race from Vesti and Daruvula, with Sargeant 4th Verschoor 5th Lawson 6th Doohan 7th Beckmann 8th Hauger 9th and Armstrong 10th.

What a mess. 4 cars crashed coming out of the first turn (Pourchaire one of them) and Doohan and Sargeant crashed going into the second chicane after Doohan's bad clutch caused him to have a slow start dropping him down to 10th or so from pole.

That first incident caused by Boschung skipping the chicane and not leaving enough space on the rejoin. I think one of the Red Bull cars caused that second incident, it looked like he cut off Doohan and Sargeant was a innocent bystander.

There's a half dozen or so drivers who are good enough to be in F1 and about half a dozen who probably shouldn't even be in F2.

Vips spins out Lawson. Both Kiwi drivers are now out of contention after Armstrong got a penalty for speeding in the pits. Lawson has a black and orange flag for a damaged wing.
