Dan recovered to score points in the FIA Formula 2 Championship Feature Race at Spa-Francorchamps despite missing practice due to an inconclusive COVID-19 test.
Dan Ticktum: “The start of the weekend was very tricky because I had an inconclusive COVID-19 test, so I wasn’t allowed into the paddock until I had a re-test which came back negative. Having missed practice I made a lot of mistakes on my qualifying lap because it was the first time I pushed the car, and the red flags just made it more difficult. We moved forward nicely in the Feature Race to sixth and the pace was really strong which placed us well for the Sprint Race. I had a good start, took the lead straight away then unfortunately got hit and my day was pretty much done because I had front wing damage, but we could have had a win. On the plus side, the pace is there so on to the next one.”
Qualifying: P14 | Feature Race: P6 | Sprint Race: P10
