Formula 2 driver Theo Borshire of Grasse set the second-fastest time in qualifying in Monaco

It didn’t take long. On Friday, in a crucial juncture in qualifying for the FIA ​​F2 Championships, Théo Pourchaire came very close to winning the coveted pole position, like last year.

If he signed the best time in Group B (1’21”535), the French Riviera captain was unable to beat the reference time previously set by the New Zealand resident in the Red sector. Bull, Liam Lawson (1’21”229).

The fact remains that Pourchaire, who is currently second in the championship with 60 points and two victories on the clock, finds himself in a better position than his number one contender in the title race.

At the top of the provisional hierarchy, Brazilian Filip Drogovic (86 points, 3 wins) hit the safety bars at Turn 19 (Anthony Nogues) during his last fast run. So he must be satisfied with the third fastest time in Group A.

Pourchaire, who became the youngest Pullman player and F2 winner at the foot of the rock last year, will start the sprint (30 laps) this Saturday at 5.40pm from ninth on the back grid. And the next day (the main race, 42 laps, this Sunday at 9:50 a.m.), he’ll start in second place… with a legitimate ambition to climb the highest rung on the princely podium again.
