Bonito bosses Baku in PC final
May 9, 2018
Enzo Bonito (Enzo Bonito), Frederik Rasmussen (G2 Frede) and Graham Carroll all secured their places in the Pro Draft last night with great drives in the Qualification 2 PC Final.
Bonito led the 13 lap race around the Baku Street Circuit from start to finish, producing a dominant drive throughout.
The first few corners saw a superb three way battle for second place between Rasmussen, Carroll and István Puki. Carroll took the early initiative.
It was a fight that was revisited later in the race after both Carroll and Rasmussen came out of the pits to begin lap 6 and rejoined just in front of Puki, who had pitted on lap 3. However, Puki sustained some damage which saw him fall away.
Rasmussen continued to pressure and this finally told on the 8th lap as he used DRS to get past Carroll into Turn 1, before defending well. They maintained position for the remainder of the race.
Further down the field, Samuel Libeert made a great move on lap 9 to overtake the battling Puki and Bono Huis and take 5th spot. Jan Fehler finished in 4th place. A great drive having started the race in 10th.
