The Ferrari Driver Academy driver won the final race of the year at the Yas Marina circuit
Antonio Fuoco was a convincing winner of the second Formula 2 race held at the Yas Marina circuit. The 22 year old FDA driver got a great start from second on the grid, which saw him take the lead at the first corner. “I knew I had a chance at the start,” explained Fuoco. “And I managed to get off the line really well, passing the pole man to take the lead right away. Once out in front, I concentrated on driving as cleanly as possible so as to manage the tyres well.”
This he did, building up a lead which he then controlled to the chequered flag. “It’s always great to end a season with a win,” added Antonio. “It’s been a long tough season and I think I made a solid contribution to a team that was in its first year in this championship. It’s the perfect way to end 2018.” Thanks to the victory in Abu Dhabi, Fuoco has finished sixth in the championship, with two wins to his name.
