Cheng Congfu Made another Fastest Lap in A1 Mexico Race

On March 16 A1 GP came to Mexico City, South America. Cheng Congfu finished by 17th, 10th respectively in both races. What delighted us was that in Sprint Race, Cheng made the fastest lap again and scored 2 more points for A1 China Team after this race weekend.

In Sprint Race, experiencing the multiple car crash, red flag, second start, safety car, Cheng Cong finished the race by 17th.Athough not entering Top10, he made the fastest lap of 1:18.744, faster than New Zealand's driver Reid by 0.084 seconds and Switzerland's Jani by 0.515 seconds, added one more valuable point for China team. This has been the third time he made the fastest lap; the previous two were in Czech and South Africa races.

In Feature Race, the first start was aborted, after second start; Cheng Congfu was passed by Malaysia and South Africa racers, dropped to 11th position. In the following laps, he managed to get 8th by overtaking Malaysia, South Africa and Portugal. But because of too much time used in the pit for first stop, he lost his position and dropped to 12th. With his continuous efforts, he kept 9th before second pit-stop. Unfortunately for the same reason, once again, he fell to 14th after pit-stop. However, he did not give up competition, but to catch up, by overtaking Indonesia and other racers, he finished by 10th, winning another 1 point for China team.

After the race, Cheng Congfu said, "This weekend our car speed was good, you have seen that we made the fastest lap once again. In the two remaining races of this season, we will try to keep the speed for the whole races. I have already made fastest laps for three times, I hope that in the coming Shanghai race I can go further. Last year, in Zhuhai, for the first time I stood on the podium on behalf of China team, if we can repeat this scene in Shanghai, it will be fantastic. I am still very confident and also hope that more and more spectators will cheer up for China!"

After this race, China Team ranked 10th by 45 points. The next race of A1GP will be held in Shanghai International Circuit., on April 6th.
