Japan’s Ayumu Iwasa says he has to keep the good performance he had prior to the summer break as FIA Formula 2 returns for Round 11 in Belgium.

Iwasa took his first F2 win at Paul Ricard in Round 9, before scoring his maiden pole position at this level in Budapest last time out.

“In the last two rounds I had good performance potential and I have to keep that going through the next three,” the Red Bull Junior Team driver explained.

20-year-old Iwasa said that despite not achieving particularly good results in Formula 3 in 2021, he does like the Spa-Francorchamps circuit, calling it “fun to drive” and “really amazing.”

Following a steady opening to the season, with points in four of the first six races, Osaka-born Iwasa made his first visit to the F2 podium in Catalunya, although a run of only two points scoring results in the next eight races undid his early promise.

However, Iwasa has rekindled the early form and improved upon it, scoring 52-points in the last five races.

As a result, Iwasa’s recent surge in form has seen him rise to seventh in the Drivers’ Standings, with 90-points, while his team DAMS are sixth in the Teams’ Championship, where they will hope to extend their slim four-point cushion over Charouz Racing System.
