Doohan Impresses in Second F2 outing F2 Doohan - FIA Formula 2 News

Jack Doohan once again showed impressive pace in his second-ever FIA Formula 2 outing to qualify second for the Feature Race.

The Australian’s strong showing had him starting in ninth place for the reverse grid Sprint Race 1, where he dropped back during the race and finished 11th.

In the second Sprint Race, Doohan climbed up from 11th to finish eighth, showing off his different skills and claiming what would be his solitary point from his weekend.

After his impressive P2 qualifying, Sunday’s Feature Race was where Doohan would have thought the big points would come.

However, it wasn’t to be for the MP Motorsport driver as he crashed into the wall after losing the car early in the race.

Doohan said, “It was a tough day today but big lesson learned, and I’ve got that out of the way before next year.

“I was the only one of the top six starting on the prime, going for the alternative strategy.

“Got a decent start, was battling with Zhou all that lap, ran out of road on the exit of Turn 9 and when rejoining there wasn’t much space to do so and I had to try and avoid contact, and I lost the car and went into the wall.

“Not the best of days, but we learn from these times, and I’ll make sure it won’t happen again next year.

“It was obviously really positive to finish P2 in Quali, in our second event, good to show our true raw pace. Now looking forward to taking the experience I’ve gained into next year.”

Doohan will hope his experience from the past two rounds of Formula 2 will help him next year for a full-time campaign at whichever team he joins.
