Another solid weekend for Luis Leeds in British F4 and while the 16-year-old Australian wanted more from the Snetterton event he remains within fighting distance of the championship lead, 29 points off with 12 races remaining.
"Not the greatest weekend," admitted the Red Bull Junior. "But we had really good pace all the way and we just have to turn that into better results and more points. In the last race I was catching the leaders, but ran out of time."
"Qualifying was interesting, it was damp, there was a red flag, then just five minutes at the end to put in your best lap. Qualifying 5th and 4th wasn't too bad but not quite where we wanted to be."
"Race 1 was pretty progressive, I had to avoid two major incidents which didn't help my progress so I finished P5."
Not the best
"Race three could have been good, from fourth on the grid I got up to third but then had an incident with my team mate and that is never good. A very unfortunate incident but that happens in racing. A real shame as it robbed us a good result and points but it does happen."
The best for last
"Race three wasn't bad at all. Again we had pace and were really catching the front three but ran out of laps before it was possible to have a go for the podium," explained the Arden driver.
"The guys gave me a great car again, we know that we've got all we need to run at the front and we are going to make it an intense battle right to the end of the season. There are a lot of points to go for and we're still aiming at that championship," concluded the Victorian who is in action again at Knockhill on August 13th and 14th.
