Kush Maini makes a massive recovery from P22 to p7

Maini had set the fastest Qualifying time on Thursday and had provisional Pole for the feature race. Due to a technical issue his lap times were erased and he had to start for the back of the Grid. Gains 24 places in the 2 races

Bahrain 2 nd March : Kush Maini who is part of the Alpine academy , sporting car number 9 and driving for the Invicta team drove an amazing Feature Race after starting absolutely last in the opening round of the Formula 2 Championship Feature Race in Bahrain which was over 32 laps. Kush went on the Prime tyres like the majority of the drivers and ensured that he had a long and consistent stint before changing to the faster Soft tyres. He was the last to pit and fortunately well timed with a Safety car and he exited the Pits in P11. With Fresher tyres he made good progress through the field by first passing both the Prema cars driven by Bearman and Antonelli. Was continuously closing the gap till he finished the race in P7.

Kush Maini " was really happy when we got Provisional Pole on Thursday because that meant that we were able to deliver over one Lap. Was a day with the highest of highs and then the Low when we were told much later that my Qualifying times won't count because I was disqualified due to a technical reason . Even though it did not change the performance , I had to start both races from the back of the grid . I tried to make as many positions as I could

In both races and so as a team we also have enough data to go into the next round. It was also good to get some points in the feature race. Looking forward to racing in Saudi next week.

Formula 2 returns next week alongside F1 in Saudi. The races can be watched live on F1 Tv and in India on Fancode.
