Top 3 Quotes from the Sochi Sprint Race Zhou - FIA Formula 2 News

Guanyu Zhou took his maiden F2 victory in Sochi after the red flags were brought out on Lap 8 due to a collision between Luca Ghiotto and Jack Aitken.

Speaking after the race Zhou said “Definitely, I mean it feels amazing obviously I promised to all the fans back in China that I will get my first win I will listen to the Chinese anthem on the podium. We did that for the flag on the top step today, obviously half points you know we wanted more for sure but the first part of the race we was clean and strong on my side.

“We did everything we could and yeah, was controlling the race at the front. I think we saw me and Mazepin we had a pretty big pace advantage to the others so it was about enough to get a good gap. He wasn’t able to overtake me and really happy for the win, at the same time it’s great to see both drivers walked out good after the huge crash.”

Second place was claimed by home hero Nikita Mazepin who drove a strong race in at the Sochi Autodrom.

Speaking after the race Mazepin said “A bit of a hectic race, I think first of all the most important thing is that everyone’s fine. Obviously again what a race for the home fans. Russian fans are the best and they witnessed a very short but intense race. I think the win was there for us, we had very good pace. We pulled away from third but it is what it is and I’m extremely happy to be on the podium, I think we really deserved it and we got it.”

Yesterday’s winner Mick Schumacher drove to third place further extending his Championship lead.

Speaking after the race the Ferrari junior said “We got a good first lap and after that we just kind of tried to manage the tyres, obviously it’s not the way we wanted to end this race. I hope and I think I know everybody’s fine, I know obviously that corner’s quite quick. I think we all drove flat out there so to have a crash there is quite decent and I think, yeah hopefully everybody’s alright and that’s all that matters at the moment.”
