Formula Renault 2.0

Tech 1 Racing dominated Sunday’s Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 qualifying session at Motorland Aragon, seizing both front-row slots for race two. Just as he did yesterday, Matthieu Vaxiviere (Tech 1 Racing) went fastest of all. Lining up next to him on the grid will be team-mate Egor Orudzhev (Tech 1 Racing), while Luca Ghiotto (Prema Powerteam) and Jake Dennis (Fortec Motorsports) will occupy the second row.

The track was decidedly damp when the drivers in Group B (cars with odd race numbers) got the morning’s qualifying under way. While all 19 participants improved their times as the session progressed, it was Egor Orudzhev, Jake Dennis and Esteban Ocon (ART Junior Team) who battled it out for the fastest time, the Russian coming out on top with a lap of 2:11.584, six tenths faster than Jake Dennis and Oscar Tunjo (Josef Kaufmann Racing), who beat Esteban Ocon into third.

“I am very pleased with my session,” remarked Egor Orudzhev. “I knew the team had made the car very fast in the wet and come think of it, it wasn’t all that hard to be out front. The car’s been performing really well since I came in and I want to thank the team for that.”

Faced with similar conditions, the front men in Group A increased the tempo in their session, which ended with Matthieu Vaxiviere (Tech 1 Racing) posting the fastest lap overall in 2:11.002, less than a tenth of second quicker than Luca Ghiotto (Prema Powerteam) and Oliver Rowland (Manor MP Motorsport).

“I said yesterday that I did a Vaxiviere lap,” said the polesitting Frenchman. “I tried to do the same thing at the end as the track was improving all the time. I’m delighted to be on pole once again. The team and I need to keep it going.”

The weekend’s second Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 race will get under way at 16:00.
