For Marcus Armstrong, luck hasn’t been the most reliable element this season, as he didn’t have the most enjoyable Sprint Race in Monza with the five seconds penalty that affected his result. However, the Hitech driver remains optimistic about making redemption from third in the Feature Race.

Starting from seventh, Armstrong fought his way with Richard Verschoor to claim sixth and made some great defense in holding on to the position despite sustaining some pressures from Jack Doohan and Liam Lawson. 

Even though the race went in his favor to finish in sixth, the Kiwi had to receive a five-second penalty for going off the track and gaining an advantage from Doohan, putting him in tenth, which leaves him dissatisfied with the final result.

Heading to the final race before the season finale starts in three weeks, Armstrong believes he could take more risks to fight and overtake from third, which is his best qualifying yet in Monza. He said, “I certainly do. It’s going to be fun, starting in the front, it’s going to be a high-paced race. I think it could potentially be first in qualifying laps in a row.”

“Everyone is driving well. So many great drivers in F2 and everyone is performing very, very well, and it doesn’t matter if there’s pressure or not; everyone’s on a high level.”

With the championship being settled in Saturday’s Sprint Race, Armstrong shared his thought about Felipe Drugovich, who had just been crowned as the FIA Formula 2 champion with 69 points advantage over Theo Pourchaire. 

When asked about Drugovich’s untouchable victory, he added: “Felipe is a good guy. He’s very talented. I’ve been racing against him since I was young. He has been consistently good, and I think he and Jack (Doohan) are in a league of their own.

“Felipe’s car has been good this year, but I think he’s made the difference. I watched his own boards like in Monaco, and it was really, really impressive.”
