FORMULA 2: De Vries wraps up F2 title with feature race win

Four wins, 11 Podiums, 254 Points, one title and a season of utter domination: Nyck de Vries sealed the 2019 FIA Formula 2 title in style with victory in the Sochi Feature Race ahead of his main challenger, Nicholas Latifi.

The Canadian had to settle for second on the day, and now faces a fight for the same spot in the drivers’ standings.

However, his win was thrown into doubt when Ghiotto, on the alternate strategy, dived past him from fourth.

When he eventually swapped his mediums for supersofts, he returned behind both of the championship’s top two and Deletraz.

His fresher, faster, tyres briefly took him to third, before he locked up and allowed Deletraz back ahead on the final turn.

This allowed de Vries to cross the line unopposed and fittingly seal his championship with a fourth victory of the year, while Latifi held on for second.
