Dennis Hauger threw caution to the wind during Sunday’s FIA Formula 2 Feature Race in Bahrain, following unsatisfactory results in Friday’s Qualifying and Saturday’s Sprint Race.

After the Sprint Race, Hauger stated he felt that he was, ‘too cautious.’

“I think the first race for me in F2, the Sprint Race, definitely the first lap, could have been a bit more assertive. I could have showed myself more and put myself in there more – It was one thing that could have been better.”

Looking at the sessions on paper, Hauger didn’t have the best of weekends. Qualifying in P15, put him at a great disadvantage for both races. Things worsened as he encountered issues on the grid, as Sunday’s Feature Race got the green light. He was forced to start from the pit lane.

However, the Norwegian demonstrated why he’s the current Formula 3 Champion, by driving a hard race to climb an astonishing amount of places, from last to ninth.

It was an action packed Feature Race, that saw two Safety Cars, and plenty of pit lane incidents.

Unfortunately, Hauger was in the mix of misfortune as his front left tyre wasn’t secured when leaving the pit box. The Pirelli tyre immediately detached and rolled along the pit lane, to an audible gasp of disappointment.

The PREMA driver suffered his first DNF of his Formula 2 career.

Despite the disappointing result, Hauger took the positives out of the Feature Race, because of the valuable leaning he’d applied from the Sprint.

“I think I proved I wasn’t that cautious on the Feature Race. I took it to the Feature Race and I’ll keep showing it into this weekend.”

We can all perhaps agree that the best drivers in the history of motor racing haven’t always got it right, and have suffered with issues out of their control. It’s in the misfortunes, learning, and improving process that produces a World Champion.
