Stephane Rouault, primary driver for Deltec Racing Team in the GPVWC Formula Challenge Series, took his 10th win of the FC season last night at Suzuka.
Race 1 started off with Rouault qualifying in p3. A close battle with him and Cameron Brewster for most of the race, until Stephane made a mistake in Spoon Curve, handing the win to Brewster. Stephane finished p6.
Race 2 saw a reverse grid. Stephane quickly worked his way up into p1, and from there took his 10th win of the season!
I was caught by surprise in quali, felt that I was sitting comfortably on p1 with a gap of 4 tenths, but then max and cam bumped me. Race 1 was always going to be tough from p3, because overtaking on this track is pretty tough. Had a good fight with cam, which i enjoyed very much! But then i made a stupid mistake in Spoon, it dropped me back to 6th. A real shame since the points are much needed to close the gap to JJ. For Race 2 i was determined to make up for my errors in Race 1, and I succeeded, by grabbing the race win, after working my way through the field. The gap to JJ is smaller than ever in the standings now. Looking forward to seeing him on track again in Abu Dhabi!!
