Asian Motorsport reviews the action from race one of the second round of the Spanish F4 championship at Algarve.

By Marco Albertini

Race one of the second round of the Spanish Formula 4 Championship was held at 3.50pm local time.

Keanu Al Azhari was on pole and pulled away from the field with a great start. However, the race was neutralized a few laps later due to an incident with Eloi Gonzalez and Tim Gerhards.

The safety car came in with 18 minutes remaining and Al Azhari once again pulled away from the pack as his championship rivals fought against each other.

With six minutes to go, an accident between Matteo Quintarelli and Mikkel Pedersen brought out another safety car, but this time the race did not restart, allowing Al Azhari to take his first win of the season ahead of Mattia Colnaghi and Thomas Strauven.

Further down the field, Yevan David finished P13, Enzo Tarnvanichkul gained some positions to finish P15 and Rehan Hakim finished P26.
