Hyman takes win to ensure four way title showdown at Snetterton

Sunday, October 26 2014

HHC Motorsport's Raoul Hyman claimed his fourth win of the year in race two at Snetteron this morning (Sunday), to take the title fight right down to the last race, with four drivers still in contention.

Lanan Racing's George Russell claimed second, ahead of Sennan Fielding and Struan Moore. Pole sitter and championship leader Arjun Maini fell to fifth place. Gaetano di Mauro finished sixth for Petroball Racing, ahead of Hillspeed's Rahul Mayer, with race one podium finisher Charlie Eastwood finishing eighth. Connor Jupp and Alfredo Zabalza completed the top-10.

Maini made a good start to lead from pole position, with Hyman jumping past Russell into second place on the run to Riches.

The top three lapped as one for the opening laps, with the trio separated by half a second before both Hyman and Russell found their way past the Indian driver on lap four. Russell then set about closing down the gap to Hyman, which at its highest was 1.3 seconds, to just over three tenths, before Hyman eked out a gap towards the end.

On lap seven, both Fielding and Struan Moore also found their way past Maini, meaning that Maini, Russell, Fielding and Hyman go into the final race separated by just 25 points, with 35 available for the win.

Hyman, Russell and Fielding received their trophies on the podium from 2014 GP2 Champion Jolyon Palmer.

George Russell set a string of fastest laps in the race, and will give him pole for the final race of the season. Hyman will start second with Fielding third and Maini fourth. Such is the grid order, that if it remains the same at the end of the race, Russell would win the championship by a single point.

Hyman commented: "I had a great start and managed to overtake George on the way to turn one, and then passed Maini on lap four. I had to think that one through as he was quick in the places that mattered so I had to set it up well. It was a great race and we had great pace. We have the second fastest lap and we'll be pushing hard for the win and the championship in the last race."
