Formula 2: Bearman Climbs from 12th to 4th in Monaco

Ollie Bearman’s Monaco weekend concluded with a thrilling charge through the field, ending the Feature Race with a smile on the young driver’s face as he advanced from P12 to P4. “We’ve had a good end to a far from straightforward weekend,” commented Ollie. “I managed to make up a lot of places in the Feature Race, which is a good thing, given the characteristics of the Monaco track. It was a shame to miss out on the podium because of the last Virtual Safety Car, but I’m really happy with my climb up the order. It was a fun race and I think I’ll sleep well tonight!” Bearman is now up to 13th in the standings with 18 points.

Sprint Race: Bearman started from the eighth row of the grid and moved up to eleventh by the end of the opening lap, maintaining that position to the chequered flag. “I got a good start and made up some places, and then with the way the race went, I managed to get up to 11th. It’s not easy to overtake here, and with the pace we showed, we had the potential to do a lot more.”

Feature Race: Bearman started from 12th on the grid and had a brilliant first lap, moving up to seventh. He then bided his time until lap 16 when he was the first of the top ten drivers to pit, replacing his Supersoft tyres with Softs. Back on track, he began to push hard, passing Kimi Antonelli and Richard Verschoor, while also dealing with drivers who had started on the Prime tyre. When the order was re-established after the pit stops, Oliver was fourth, losing a place to eventual winner Zak O’Sullivan due to the Virtual Safety Car. Bearman kept fourth place to the chequered flag, ending an exceptional drive.
