Renault Sport Academy Driver Christian Lundgaard clinched a fourteenth victory of 2017 in Navarra to remain at the top of the Spanish F4 Championship.

The Dane also added a brace of third place finishes in northern Spain to take his tally in the series to 232 points.

Christian qualified on pole position for Race One in Navarra and comfortably led from the lights to take his fifth win in the series.

A lock-up on the opening lap in Race Two saw Christian slip from second to third. And he had to also settle for third in the final race after running wide whilst sitting in second.

This weekend, Christian will officially lift the SMP F4 NEZ title in Assen which he had already secured at the penultimate round in Moscow in August.

It was a mixed weekend for Marta who claimed 10 points across the three races. In the opener, from eleventh on the grid, Marta battled to a strong eighth place finish before falling outside of the points in race two.

The Spanish teen impressed in the final race of the weekend going from seventh to sixth to take a number of points.

“It was an up and down weekend in Navarra. It didn’t begin too well, in first qualifying the pedal on the throttle broke and I couldn’t do too many laps and I ended P11. In the first race, I had the same problem and I managed to get eighth. The second race was difficult, but I ended the weekend quite well going from seventh to sixth. The next race is in Nogaro in two weeks’ time and we will push for a good weekend !”

“It was a mixed weekend overall. The goal was within reach, but I made a mistake in Race Three where I had the potential to win. I feel like I’ve let the team down on this one. Next weekend we head to Assen for the NEZ championship, and I will be going for wins.”
