Frederik Vesti on his Monaco Feature Race victory: “We are living the dream!”

PourchairePourchaire: “Next time I have to be a bit more aggressive” after second place at Monaco

After an emphatic victory on the Monte Carlo streets, Frederik Vesti has taken the Formula 2 championship lead after an “incredible” drive.

The Dane led from lights to flag, securing his third Formula 2 victory in the process. And whilst all his victories might have come on street circuits, Vesti described winning Monaco as “the biggest dream in Formula 2!” in his post-race team radio.

In his post race interview, Vesti had the following to say about his dominant performance in the principality:

“We had a really good start, and it helps that we were in p1! And then I was just trying to manage the pace and the tyres, I could see I was pulling a gap all the time, so I just tried to manage that, and yeah, we did that well clearly!

“For sure, the main pressure was the start, and then obviously the first few laps, and then the pitstop as well, it’s quite dangerous, some things can happen. So, we got that out the way, and all I had to do was do a sprint race at the end, 15 laps.”

Overjoyed, Vesti stated over the team radio that “we are living the dream!” – a testament to how much it means for any driver to win around the famous Monte-Carlo streets. It was also Prema’s first Feature Race victory in Monaco, after last year’s 1-2 finish in the Sprint Race.

Vesti’s win puts him 5 points clear of ART’s Théo Pourchaire, the Frenchman claiming 2nd place in the Feature Race to keep Vesti within touching distance. But despite the small margin, Vesti is still confident for the rest of the season, stating that his aim is “maximising every session”, and that he’s “sure we’ll have the championship by the end of the year” if everything goes to plan.

Next weekend, Formula 2 returns to Barcelona, for what should be another exciting weekend of racing. And with the top 2 only separated by 5 points, Vesti will be keen to extend his title lead out in Catalonia.
