Bacheta keeps on winning

In the three races in the Formula Two championship so far this season there has only been one winner.  Luciano Bacheta.  The pole-sitter started well and led to the finish in order to win, with only Mathéo Tuscher getting close to him, but not able to pass him for the lead.

Starting from 2nd on the grid, Markus Pommer did not get away well, generating too much wheel spin, and causing him to slip down to 5th, behind Mathéo Tuscher, Kevin Mirocha and David Zhu.  Pommer and Zhu were close throughout the race and battled for 4th position, with Pommer eventually getting the better of Zhu.

In the dying laps of the race Mathéo Tuscher was able to capitalise on Bacheta's fading tyres to close the gap between the two, getting close enough to use his overboost facility.  The Swiss teenager was not able to get past Bacheta, however, who defended his position in order to take the win, forcing Tuscher to settle for being the youngest ever driver on the podium in a Formula Two race.
