Last week’s round was crucial for the Le Mans based team: in the race for both Teams and Drivers’ crowns, DAMS were under a lot of pressure to deliver title contender Oliver Rowland and Nicholas Latifi with the perfect car to fight for glory on track. Starting from P4 on Saturday, the Briton gave his all to try and stop Leclerc from clinching the title: he made no mistake to move up to P2 at the flag, adding two more points with fastest lap, but it was not enough and Oliver was left to congratulate his rival on his success. Yet, with the Teams’ title in sight, the Renault F1 protégé drove from P7 to P3 in the Sprint Race making it his tenth podium of the season. His teammate Latifi also had a strong weekend: ninth in qualifying, he started on a different strategy (Prime/Option) than Rowland and Leclerc and nearly made the podium, with P4 at the flag. The next day, he took second to add an eighth podium finish to his tally. With a total of 54 points scored in Jerez, DAMS are lying second in the Teams’ Championship, just two points behind PREMA Racing. The fight in the final round in Abu Dhabi should be glorious!
