Antonio Felix da Costa has taken a superb win around the streets of Macau during this afternoon’s Qualification Race. Having started from the front row of the grid Da Costa took the lead holding more than a second gap in his Volkswagen powered Dallara Formula Three car over his nearest rival Felix Rosenqvist.
Lining up on the grid on the front row Da Costa had his sights set on pole man Alex Lynn from the moment the lights went out. However it was a fast starting Rosenqvist who led going into the first corner before Da Costa was able to brilliantly snatch the position and pull away in the lead.
DaCosta leads Rosenqvist
At the front Da Costa was pulling away from Rosenqvist and soon had a cushion of one second over his nearest competitor; continuing to pull the gap Da Costa crossed the line to dominantly win the Qualification Race and ensure he starts on pole for tomorrow’s 59th Macau Grand Prix.
Reflecting on his race Da Costa said, ‘I’ve felt really confident this whole weekend, we’ve proven today that we have great pace and we’re able to break the tow to the car behind easily. The plan is going to be the same for tomorrow as today – although you can’t predict anything around here.
‘Today was another strong day for the team who have done an amazing job with not only my car but also the others. It’s been a really good day for me.’
