2019 Formula 2 French Grand Prix Recap

The Formula 2 race weekend in France ended with Dutchman, Nyck de Vries, taking the feature race victory while Frenchman, Anthoine Hubert, claimed his second Formula 2 victory, in front of his home crowd.

A good weekend for…

Having struggled to gain momentum during the current campaign, it was a successful weekend for Brazilian, Sergio Sette Camara, who finished the weekend claiming the most amount of points over the two races, as Camara scored twenty eight points.

Nyck de Vries was another who had success, taking the lead in the championship, all thanks to his commanding performance during the feature race.

It was a positive event for American, Juan Manuel Correa, who amassed eighteen points during the weekend, the exact same number of points from his other point scoring weekend in Azerbaijan.

It was a good weekend for Guiliano Alesi who managed to score his first point of the 2019 campaign.

Lastly, it was another strong performance from Hubert who took the sprint race victory and accumulated nineteen points during the weekend, the exact same as his other highest scoring weekend, at Monaco.

A bad weekend for…

Although Canadian, Nicholas Latifi scored more points than he did in the previous round in Monaco, he was still only able to claim the seventh highest points total during the weekend. This has led to Latifi losing the lead in the championship to de Vries.

After strong performances in Monaco for Nobuharu Matsushita, Louis Deletraz and Dorian Boccolacci, it was a weekend to forget for all three in France as Matsushita only managed to score four points (compared to twenty in Monaco), Deletraz only managed to score two points (compared to eighteen in Monaco) and Boccolacci failed to score any points (compared to eighteen in Monaco).

It was also a difficult event for Mick Schumacher whose weekend was compromised when his teammate, Sean Gelael, crashed into the back of him during the feature race, which ultimately also compromised Schumacher’s sprint race.

Lastly it was a weekend to forget for Mahaveer Raghunathan, mainly after it was found that he had infringed on all three Virtual Safety Car procedures during the feature race, leading to him accumulating three penalty points on his license, which meant he reached the twelve points that leads to a race suspension and therefore means he will not be allowed to compete in Austria.

What next?

Formula 2 heads straight to Austria this weekend to support the Formula 1 event.
