Oscar Wurz dominates first race of F4 CEZ at Slovakia Ring

Austrian driver Oscar Wurz from Jenzer Motorsport team led from start to finish, scoring his first win of the season in F4 CEZ and extending his points lead in the championship. The exciting battle throughout the race at Slovakia Ring was mainly for third position.

Championship contenders Oscar Wurz and Kirill Kutskov from Maffi Racing Team started from the front row. Behind them were Czech drivers Miroslav Mikeš from JMT Racing and Max Karhan from Jenzer Motorsport.

Oscar Wurz had a great start and kept first place. Miroslav Mikeš moved up from third to second, attacking Wurz in the opening corners but settling for second, with Kutskov in third.

Max Karhan had a slow getaway but managed to remain in fourth in front of Corerella, Holguin, Sabaj, Borenstein, Halatnik and Okucka, who rounded out the top 10.

Kutskov attacked Mikeš for second place, but Mikeš’s strong defensive line made it hard for Kutskov. The Maffi Racing driver eventually moved up to second place after a nice move on the outside.

Wurz comfortably held the lead, maintaining a gap to second-place Kutskov. The battle for third began to intensify between Mikeš, Karhan and Corerella. The fight between Mikeš and Karhan was very hard and close. They didn’t give each other much room, and Karhan was squeezed onto the grass, losing momentum and his position to Corerella.

Unfortunately, Olkucka from Maffi Racing ended up in the gravel trap, and the safety car was deployed. Wurz’s huge lead was immediately wiped out. The order under yellow flags was: Wurz, Kutskov, Mikeš, Corerella, Karhan, Holguin, Sabaj, Halatnik, Borenstein and Jandová in tenth.

Wurz kept the lead after the restart, while Kutskov, Mikeš and Corerella were in a close fight. However, Corerella touched the right rear tire of Mikeš, causing him to spin at high speed. Fortunately, Mikeš didn’t hit the barriers and continued in the race after the whole field went through.

Towards the end of the race, Karhan and Corerella were fighting hard but fairly for the last podium finish, changing places and driving side by side. It was really close, but Corerella kept third place by just 0.1 seconds from Karhan.

In the last lap at turn ten, there was an incident between Teodor Borenstein and Gabriel Holguin, and both drivers were out, losing fifth and sixth places, respectively. Sabaj moved up to fifth, with Halatnik sixth, Mikeš seventh, and Jandová eighth.
