In front of 100,000 people, 15 year old Australian Formula 4 racer, Luis Leeds has won the Opening race of the new Mexico F4 Series at the Mexico Grand Prix.
Luis scored his maiden F4 victory after taking pole position yesterday at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez.
Luis lead from the outset to open up a 10 second gap before a safety car closed in the field. With one lap to go after the restart, Leeds maintained his lead to cross the line in first place.
Standing on the F1 podium Leeds was proud to hear the Australian National anthem play on Mexican soil.
“Today’s the happiest day of my life so far, to hear the Australian National Anthem in Mexico is an honor,” Leeds said
“Without the support of Preston Hire and Peter O’Shea, today wouldn’t have been possible, I also want to thank Alex Molina for putting it all together. Thanks to RAM Racing in Mexico and Felipe Abed for all the support and making me welcome,” Leeds continued.
Leeds will return home to Australia today to focus on the next round of the Australian Formula 4 series at Phillip Island with Dream Motorsport on the 20-22 November.
