Ace Antonelli had to work hard for his victory in race one. The Mumbai Falcons’ 16-year-old Mercedes Formula 1-backed talent had dropped to third on lap one in a thrilling three-wide battle against PHM Racing pair Barnard and Josh Dufek. Antonelli soon recovered second from Swiss ace Dufek and then wrested the lead from British talent Barnard following an early safety car. Antonelli’s Mumbai Falcons team-mate Rafael Câmara was also making advancement. The Brazilian, a member of the Ferrari Driver Academy, pulled off brilliant outbraking manoeuvres on Dufek for third and then on Barnard to claim second.
Many witnessed thrilling, action-packed racing in the Formula Regional Middle East Championship (FRMEC) as the Giti-powered series returned to the Dubai Autodrome from Kuwait Motor Town.
