Louis Sharp leads the British F4 championship after Round three of the season at Snetterton and said “it was too hard to follow” after he finished second behind his team mate Dion Gowda in Race 3.
The championship leader said was leading Race 1 before the event was cancelled and holds a slim six point lead atop the standings despite being involved in a collision with Dan Guinchard and Josh Irfan in Race 2.
Sharp said to insideF2: “(the podium) is a good way to finish it off, yesterday we would’ve won the race but it didn’t end up counting the result and Race 2 this morning being taken out.
“It’s frustrating but it’s motorsport these things do happen, starting P3 I knew it was going to be a good opportunity for a podium and I was able to get off the line and stay there.
“But unfortunately it’s so difficult to pass round here especially in these cars, it doesn’t matter if you’re a couple fo tenths faster there’s still really nothing you can do.
“I do believe the pace was there, it was just too hard to follow but it’s a good way to finish off the weekend.”
Gowda performed admirably in Race 3 soaking up immense pressure from Kanato Le and his team mate Sharp to improve to second in the championship.
He said: “ They put a lot of pressure but I just stayed calm, controlled the race from the front and the team did a mega job, the pace was quick so super happy with it.”
British F4 heads to Thruxton in Hampshire on 3-4 of June for the fourth round of the championship and Gowda is hoping for more trophies as he fights at the top of the championship.
The Indian driver said: “It’s a new track we’ll see again how we go, hopefully more trophies but I think we just take it as it comes. Get the practice, qualifying and just one step at a time.”
