The Red Bull Junior Jonny Edgar shone very impressively at Oschersleben, ultimately securing the 2020 ADAC F4 Championship, while Van Amersfoort Racing had already taken the Teams Championship.
Jonny worked it out: “Qualifying was good, Jak and I hadn’t tested here since March but a lot of the others had but we were still 1 and 2 in Quali which was good. Race 1 was good until I got a puncture so I lost a lot of points there which put me behind in the championship. Then in Race 2 I lost a place going to the first corner so was P3. I managed to get that back and went to catch the leader. I caught him but couldn’t get past, it is very hard to pass here. I didn’t want to take too many risks as I wanted to have a chance for the championship in the last race.”
“For the last race I had worked out exactly what I needed to do to win the championship. I had a good start so got to P4 on the first lap. The pace was really good so I got to P3 a couple of laps later. I had the fastest lap. Then we had a Safety Car, I got a good restart and got into 2nd. I knew that Jak was 2 places behind where he needed to be to beat me in the championship. So then I didn’t take any chances trying to pass the leader. The last 5 laps were a bit difficult because nearly everyone had saved some tyres for the last races but Jak and I hadn’t. Our cars were so good this weekend though that even with old tyres we still had good pace and it was only difficult over the last few laps.”
