F2: Zane Maloney Puts Barbados on F2 Map With Third Place Finish

On Sunday, March 5, Barbadian Zane Maloney blazed his way to a P3 finish on his Formula Season 2 debut at the Bahrain International Circuit in Bahrain.

In a spectacular performance, there is a buzz, not about his finish, but about where he came from – P18 to P3.

This proves why he is being hailed as one of the region’s foremost drivers.

By the third lap, he had already made up a whopping 11 places, sending a strong message to the rest of the field.

In an interview with Formula 2 afterward, he said:

“P3 from P18, to be honest, when I went to bed last night, I would have been happy with one point, so to come away with a podium is amazing. The team gave me an amazing car that I was able to go out there and get podium with, so of course, a thank-you to them.”

And he promised to a big celebration when he’s back in Barbados.

he said: “Thank you to everyone back home for the support. Hopefully, I’ll be coming back to you guys soon in Barbados, and we can celebrate this and onto the next.”

Maloney partnered with Barbados Tourism and Marketing Inc (BTMI) to showcase Barbados as a sports destination and the Motorsport Island.

He races with Carlin this season and is also part of the Red Bull Driver Academy.
