Lucas Oil Scores Podium Finish at Silverstone

Date: Monday 04 July 2022

Ayumu Iwasa took second place in his Lucas Oil-sponsored car at the FIA Formula 2 Sprint Race at Silverstone, last weekend. It was a second podium finish of the 2022 season, for the Japanese driver.

In wet conditions, the Red Bull Junior put in a great effort in qualifying to take sixth, with his teammate Roy Nissany just missing out on the top-10 in 11th.

On a wet track in the Sprint Race, Iwasa made a strong start and showed excellent pace throughout, quickly working his way up to second. Late in the race, the Japanese driver began to close in on the leader, but ran out of laps before he could challenge for the win.

Dan Morgan, Lucas Oil’s director of sales for the UK said:

“It was another stunning performance and because we had members of the Lucas Oil team alongside the DAMS team in the pits for both races, the result was extra special.”

In the Feature Race, Iwasa got another excellent getaway to move up to fourth, but an issue in the pits dropped him down the order, eventually finishing 12th.

The team now heads to Austria and the Red Bull Ring for Round 8 of the 2022 campaign on 8-10 July.
