Antonio Felix da Costa dominates NEC at Oschersleben

Double Win for the Portuguese driver.

After being quickest in all free practice sessions and taking his first pole position of the year, Antonio Felix da Costa took two wins at Oscherslebenon on the Formula Renault 2.0 North European Cup. The 17 year old driver dominated the first race from the first lap to the end, and on the second race after starting 8th on the grid got a fantastic start that put him on second place stratight way. After, he managed to overtake the leader on the first lap and dominated again the race, finishing with 8 seconds to his team mate Marco Sorensen.

"The team did a fantastic job this weekend. We dominated the whole weekend and it was fantastic to get 2 wins, especially this year with the reverse grid for the first eight of race 1. On the first race I just control my opponents without takings any risks, actually my lap times were consistent and fast. On the second race, I started really well and when I arrived to first corner I was already on second place. I think they all got a lot of whellspin and I managed to not have it. It was fantastic this race, on the first 8 laps I pushed a lot and opened a gap of 8 seconds. After I just control and brought the car to the end. I would like to thank my sponsors, my engineer and all the team for the fantastic car they gave me this weekend."

The Portuguese driver is now even more leader on the championship, after 4 race weekends. The next race of the Portuguese driver is at Silverstone (4/5 July), this time for the Eurocup where he is also leading. The confidence and motivation could not be better for the Portuguese driver after such a successful weekend.
