A1 Team France claimed its fourth straight victory and stormed into the lead of the championship as Alexandre Prémat dominated both the sprint and feature races at Estoril. It was warm and sunny and after Prémat took the lead from A1 Team Brazil at the start of the sprint race, he never looked back. Starting from pole in the feature event A1 Team France led for the entire hour-long race.

Alexandre Prémat commented: "The sprint race was quite tough and it was difficult to pull away from Brazil once I had passed them. I focused on my own race and drove a clean race to win this gave me pole for the feature race. The feature race was quite easy I had a good start and was surprised that Brazil stalled on the grid. After that it was easy to build up a lead. We had to be careful around the safety car period as Switzerland was very fast but I just used the power boost button and was able to defend my lead. It's a fantastic result for us to claim our fifth podium of the season and our fourth straight win."
