The Formula Three Championship Drivers title was decided after the opening race in Sochi and was honored by Dennis Hauger.
The Prema Racing driver finished second in the opening race, scoring points ahead of Australia’s Jack Doohan and winning the title in the remaining two races.
Doohan, who took pole position in the feature race, was demoted to 12th place on the grid in the opening race of the weekend (after his teammate’s lap time was removed due to a breach of track restrictions).
The Australians were involved in a brawl at the start and were forced to launch over the curb at the first corner of the opening lap.
Doohan lost several positions in the process and was only able to save 15th place as a result of the race, failing to secure enough points to keep the title fight alive for the rest of the weekend.
Originally scheduled for Saturday, the organizer has advanced the weekend’s opening F3 race to Friday afternoon due to Sochi’s weather forecast.
Logan Sargeant won the race after leading the entire race with a front row start. He postponed the slow push from Hauger and claimed to win the race for the first time in the season.
Victor Martins, who started from pole position, finished the podium in Race 1.
The action was well thought out across the field, and Clement Novalak made a slow move to get Caio Collet, who completed the Top 5.
Lorenzo Colombo, Arthur Leclerc, Frederik Vesti, Juan Manuel Correa and Ayumu Iwasa conclude the top 10 runners.
The race was interrupted for a very short time as Tijmen Van der Helm’s MP Motorsport entry was engulfed in smoke on lap five and triggered a virtual safety car.
The second Australian in the field at Calan Williams finished the day on the 19th.
