Kush Maini Loses Pole in Bahrain

Kush Maini Bahrain Invicta Racing Pole F2 Formula 2

The FIA Formula 2 Championship keeps us entertained on and off track. This evening news broke that Kush Maini had been disqualified from the final qualifying standings after his car was found to violate the Technical Regulations of the FIA Formula 2 Championship.

The post-session scrutiny by the stewards revealed that the height of the left undertray front external strake on car #9 did not meet the minimum required height, contravening Article 3.4.1 of the 2024 Technical Regulations.

As a result, all times recorded by Maini during the qualifying session have been expunged. The disqualification means the Indian racer, who had initially secured the fastest lap of the session, will now face the challenge of starting both the Sprint Race on Saturday and the Feature Race on Sunday from the rear of the grid.

This unexpected development elevates Maini’s teammate at Invicta Racing, Gabriel Bortoleto, to the pole position, altering the starting grid dynamics significantly.

Campos Racing’s Isack Hadjar will take his place next to Bortoleto at the front, promising an intriguing start to the races.

Furthermore, Jak Crawford of DAMS Lucas Oil benefits from the reshuffle, as he ascends to the reverse grid pole position for the Sprint Race, moving up one spot to 10th in the revised final classification, setting the stage for a compelling weekend of racing action.
