A bad weekend for…

After the high of France, it was a more difficult weekend for Pedro Piquet, in part due to a spin at the start of the sprint race which dropped him down the order, scuppering his chance of scoring more than the eight points he eventually finished the weekend with.

There were also difficult weekend’s for Bent Viscaal, Yuki Tsunoda and Liam Lawson who having claimed twenty six points between them in France, didn’t manage to score any points between them during the two races in Austria.
