Porsche Mobil 1™ Supercup Round 6 - Monza
What a great day for BWT Lechner Racing at the Royal Park in Monza: Under a blue sky and a warm late summer sun, Dylan Pereira secured the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup drivers championship 2022, while his teammates Bastian Buus and Harry King with a win and a third place let the Austrian squad finish the season on an absolute high.
On the track, it had even been a 1-2-victory, but King later received a questionable 5-second penalty for what had seemed to be a normal race incident with ten Voorde and Heinrich.
Robert Lechner, BWT Lechner Racing Team Principal: “Congratulations to Dylan, who showed an impressive performance over the whole year and really deserves the title with his three victories.But I don´t want to forget our two other drivers, Bastian and Harry showed today how fast and mature at the same time they already are at their young age. I can´t wait to see so much more from them in the future. In such a happy day I would like to take the opportunity to thank everybody, the whole team, the drivers, all our partners and especially BWT, who made this success a reality. We are already looking to 2023 when we will be back in full strength.”
The Dylan Pereira from Luxembourg had finished third on track behind his two BWT Lechner Racing teammates, but a late 3-second time penalty due to having gained an advantage by leaving the track dropped him back to P5 in the final classification.
Dylan Pereira: “I was waiting to win a big championship for quite some time, so now it is really a dream come true. During the cool down lap I got rather emotional in the car, it´s such a great feeling when you have done it, such a relief. The pressure is always there before – even when it might look rather settled from the outside. At the first moment of the penalty, I was a bit upset – but today is such a great day, so forget about it, I just want to enjoy the title now. Thank you to everybody who has supported me on my long way so far, especially to BWT Lechner Racing, Robert and Walter and everybody else in the team, to my family, my partners and friends. You all have contributed to make all this possible.”
Race winner Bastian Buus had started from P2 on the grid, but already managed to take the lead from pole setter Marvin Klein during the first lap, before the Safety Car had to come out for three laps due to a midfield crash.
Bastian Buus: “That was of course very important, and after the re-start I could get away a little bit while the guys behind me were fighting each other. But during the last laps, Harry came very close, I had to stay really focused not to make the slightest mistake. It is great to finish the season in such a way – thanks again to everybody at BWT Lechner Racing for the fantastic support over the whole season.”
Harry King, who had set the fastest time in qualifying, but had to start from P4 due to a grid penalty from Zandvoort for the collision with Jaap van Lagen, showed his impressive speed by making it up to P2, finishing just four tenth of a second behind Buus – until the strange penalty dropped him back to P3.
Harry King: “I think it was quite a good performance, of course, it would have been nice to get my first Supercup win. It was very close, but between teammates, you just have to be a little bit more careful to start an attack – and Bastian made no mistake that would have given me a chance. But it was a superb first year with BWT Lechner Racing – and for sure there is more to come in the future.”

Somebody else in the team had reason to celebrate:

Michael Schöch, BWT Lechner Racing Team Manager: “Apart from winning the team, driver and rookie championship, we also claimed the title of “Mechanic of the Year” for us. Congratulations to Andoni Lurumbe, whom I also see as a representative of the team´s excellent performance. I am really proud of him. Every team nominates one mechanic for this, and then the nominees vote amongst them to define the winner.”

Formula 1® Racing - Monza

Alfa Romeo Team ORLEN

Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN brought home a well-deserved point from the Italian Grand Prix as Zhou Guanyu finished 10th on a busy afternoon of racing. Team-mate, Valtteri Bottas, saw his race compromised after suffering damage at the first corner and dropping to last but recovered to finish 13th at the chequered flag.

The point gained today ends the team’s scoring drought and lifts the team’s tally for the season to 52.

Frédéric Vasseur, Team Principal: “We had a positive weekend as a team, and the point we brought home with Zhou is a good reward. We had pace from Friday onwards, including in Q1 where Zhou was in P6, but we still had to get the job done today. We fought well in the midfield, even though overtaking was hard, and didn’t really do mistakes with Zhou so we could maximise our returns from the race. Unfortunately, Valtteri’s day was compromised by the damage he suffered at the start, but the key takeaway here is our performance: if we carry it over to the next rounds, we can aim to bring home more points to our name.”

Valtteri Bottas (car number 77):
Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN C42 (Chassis 01/Ferrari)
Race result: 13th
Fastest lap: 1:25.706 (Lap 45)
Tyres: New Medium (35 laps) - New Soft (17 laps)

Valtteri Botta: “We had good pace today, so it’s disappointing not to be in the points: in the end, my race was compromised at turn one when I was hit from behind and I hit the car ahead. I had damage to the front wing, having lost the endplate, and then the car went into antistall: before I could get back going, I had lost a lot of ground and I was last. The car was clearly good, as I was able to make a decent recovery, but the damage still made it quite tricky: at least, the team got a point with Zhou so we have something to show for today. I’m looking forward to the mini-break ahead of us now, before we go full push for the end of the season. We know we can score points and I really want to finish the year in a stronger place than we are now.”

Zhou Guanyu (car number 24):
Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN C42 (Chassis 03/Ferrari)
Race result: 10th
Fastest lap: 1:26.361 (Lap 41)
Tyres: New Medium (18 laps) - New Hard (35 laps)

Zhou Guanyu: “I am really happy with today’s result and with the work that has been done in the past few weeks; it’s been a tough journey since Montreal, because we were very strong at the beginning of the season and then our performances had a dip; but being back in the points today is an amazing feeling, a great result both for the team and for Alfa Romeo. We knew we had a chance today, our pace was good and it allowed us to be in the fight with the other teams. We have a couple of weeks off now, which will give us time to rest after the triple-header and, above all, to analyze what worked this weekend and what went wrong in the previous races, to come prepared and motivated ahead of the next ones. I am looking forward to the Asian double-header, as the races will be closer to home and there will be several fans coming to support me.”

Esteban Ocon

BWT Alpine F1 Team left without reward from today's Italian Grand Prix as Esteban Ocon finished eleventh in today's race in Monza. The team remains in fourth position in the Constructors' Championship heading into the flyaway part of the season, which begins in Singapore in three weeks' time.

Esteban Ocon: "It was a tricky race today and obviously it's disappointing to finish just one position away from the points in the end. The car was performing well, and we had good race pace, which we weren't able to show with traffic ahead. We'll refocus and maximise everything for the remaining races from Singapore and onwards. I'm looking forward to a little break to recover from the triple header and fully prepare for the flyaway races where we'll look to get both cars back into the points in our fight for fourth in the Constructors' Championship."

Porsche Mobil 1™ Supercup Round 6 - Zandvoort

What a great weekend for BWT Lechner Racing at Zandvoort: On a nice summer Sunday at the 4.259 km long track in the dunes of the North Sea, in front of more than 100 000 Dutch fans who would later enthusiastically cheer for their hero Max Verstappen winning his home GP, there was a lot of reason to celebrate for the whole team.

In a rather chaotic race that ended with a Red Flag, the Austrian squad secured its 12th team championship title in the history of the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup, an outstanding record, while Danish Youngster Bastian Buus claimed the rookie title.

Robert Lechner, BWT Lechner Racing Team Principal: “It´s great to have these two championships already in the bag, before the season final in Monza in one week´s time. I am very proud of the whole team. Everybody worked so hard and extremely professional over the whole year – this is the very well deserved reward. Bastian drove a great first season in his first year with us, fulfilling the high hopes we had in him from the very beginning. Now we can focus on also securing the overall drivers´championship for Dylan Pereira next weekend in Italy.”

Championship leader Pereira, who had already actually set the fastest time on track in qualifying, but received a three-place grid penalty for an incident with Simone Iaquinta, dropping him back from Pole Position to P4, scored another podium finish with P3 on track behind Marvin Klein from France and young Dutchman Morris Schuring. That became P2 when Schuring got a five-second penalty for a false start.

He now has a lead of 18 points over defending champion Larry ten Voorde (P3 at Zandvoort) and 20 over Laurin Heinrich (P5), which means that P9 in Italy would be enough for him to secure the title.

Dylan Pereira: “I was a bit careful at the beginning when there was a huge chaos, lost a few places, but thankfully I was able to make up some ground again, stay ahead of my main championship rivals and extend my lead before the final in Monza. It doesn´t look too bad right now for winning my first championship, but for sure I don´t take anything for granted”

Formula 1® Racing - Zaandvoort

Alfa Romeo Team ORLEN

Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN had a tough day in Zandvoort as Zhou Guanyu finished 16th and Valtteri Bottas retired from the Dutch Grand Prix. A difficult weekend ended in disappointment in what was, for the neutral viewer, an incredibly thrilling afternoon of racing. The team will now return to action in next weekend’s Italian Grand Prix, the team’s home race.

Frédéric Vasseur, Team Principal: “It’s been a tough day at the end of a difficult weekend. We had been struggling to find pace but made some good improvements as we approached the race: unfortunately, we lost Valtteri for a suspected power unit issue, and Zhou’s race was compromised by a penalty for speeding in the pit-lane. With the midfield as close as it is, anything but a perfect race means you’re missing out on the points and this is exactly what happened. It’s been disappointing, but we have Monza next week and hopefully we will be able to put this one behind us and do well in front of that crowd. It’s a home race for us and our title partners and we want to have a good one to get back on track.”

Valtteri Bottas (car number 77):
Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN C42 (Chassis 01/Ferrari)
Race result: DNF
Fastest lap: 1:16.844 (Lap 51)
Tyres: New Soft (16 laps) - New Soft (18 laps) - New Medium (19 laps - DNF)

Valtteri Bottas: “It’s always disappointing to end a race ahead of time. I felt the car’s pace was better than yesterday’s, we had kept progressing, even though it would have still been challenging to score points. The battle in the midfield was quite good and there was plenty of action, but then we had a technical issue and our race was over. I am waiting for confirmation, but I think it was a power unit issue: there was no sign prior to that, everything was feeling ok and I suddenly lost power. I could see some flames in the back, so now we’ll have to see what we find there.”

Zhou Guanyu (car number 24):
Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN C42 (Chassis 03/Ferrari)
Race result: 16th
Fastest lap: 1:15.940 (Lap 63)
Tyres: New Soft (12 laps) - Used Soft (25 laps) - New Medium (18 laps) - Used Soft (17 laps)

Zhou Guany: “It’s been quite a tough race today, particularly towards the end as we got slowed down a lot by all the blue flags. The late safety car also did not play in our favour, as there wasn’t much time left and we put on used softs which didn’t make it easy to charge up. It’s been a challenging weekend overall for the team, we’ve been clearly lacking something compared to the rest of the midfield, so we will have to work hard in these few days: we need to make sure to improve ahead of Monza next week and for the rest of the season, to try and get back to where we were, performance-wise, during the first races of the year.”

Esteban Ocon

BWT Alpine F1 Team made it five double points finishes in a row with solid points from the weekend Dutch Grand Prix with Esteban Ocon ninth at a packed-out Zandvoort.

By scoring ten points from today's race, the team moves further ahead in fourth place in the Constructors' Championship on 125 points. Esteban made a brilliant start to the race as he moved up three positions on lap one.

Esteban pitted for Hards on lap 19 and pitted under the full Safety Car nine laps later for Softs, which allowed him to gain control in his fight with Lance Stroll and with Esteban just missing out on the Ferrari's punishment by 0.2secs to finish in ninth place.

Esteban Ocon: "I'm pleased to score points today and it was a nice recovery after disappointment in Qualifying on Saturday. We have also outscored McLaren again, which is positive in our fight in the Constructors' Championship. On my side, I had a mega start, made up a few places in the early part of the race, which put us in position to score points. There's always more you can do, so we'll assess the things we can improve for next time to come away with even more. Another race is just around the corner and I'm already looking forward to Monza, a track that I love, and one that will likely suit our car better. We will push on!"

Porsche Mobil 1™ Supercup Round 6 - SPA-FRANCORCHAMPS

Fantastic day for Dylan Pereira and BWT Lechner Racing: At the classical and challenging track of Spa-Francorchamps in the Belgian Ardennes, the 25-year-old from Luxembourg celebrated his third victory in the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup 2022 and extended his championship lead to 12 points ahead of Laurin Heinrich.

For Pereira, it was already the third Supercup win at his “home track” after 2019 and the historic triumph in the 300th race of the series in 2021 in the pouring rain. This time he confirmed his outstanding master class at this circuit under entirely different conditions with sunshine and comfortable 20 degrees by finishing the race nearly 7 seconds ahead of defending champion Larry ten Voorde.

Robert Lechner, BWT Lechner Racing Team Principal: “Really outstanding performance of Dylan here at Spa. Already yesterday in qualifying and now in the race he dominated everything, proved again his current impressive form and made it clear that with now three wins he is the well-deserved championship leader. Speaking of championships, we have a very good chance to already win not only the rookie, but also the team title next weekend in Zandvoort – so I am really looking forward to this race.”

Pereira was ever so happy about his victory, that was celebrated by a lot of family and friends from nearby Luxembourg at the track. He had already dominated qualifying on Saturday, claiming pole position for BWT Lechner Racing, nearly four tenth ahead of Heinrich, and was very pleased with his performance.

Dylan Pereira: “I managed to win the start from pole position, which was very important. From then on I was able to pull away step by step and control the race. In the end, I even had time to watch on the video wall that ten Voorde got past Heinrich – which championship-wise was good for me. It was not easy, as due to the rain on Friday we did not have much data from free practice. And during our test here, track conditions were completely different with 50 degrees asphalt temperature. But I got everything together very well, the first lap was already quite good, so for the second run it was mainly fine-tuning – and it worked.”

British Porsche Carrera Cup champion Harry King made it from P8 on the grid after a very unfortunate collision in qualifying to P5 but he was able to make up ground in the race, finishing just a bit more than a second behind Heinrich in P3.

His Danish BWT Lechner teammate Bastian Buus started and finished in P6, the youngster winning the rookie classification for the sixth time in six races, a new record.


Formula 1® Racing - Hungarian GP

Alfa Romeo Team ORLEN

Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN went close to scoring points as Zhou Guanyu finished 14th, within seconds of P10, at the Belgian Grand Prix. Birthday Boy, Valtteri Bottas, saw his race come to an early end as he was collected by a spinning Latifi and spun into the gravel in the opening laps.

Frédéric Vasseur, Team Principal: “The team did a good job, given the circumstances: unfortunately, that was not enough for a point today. We knew that we'd have a complicated weekend taking power unit and gearbox penalties with both cars, but we can take heart from the pace we showed. Both drivers had a good shot at the points: unfortunately, Valtteri’s race was over immediately, and Zhou got stuck in Albon’s DRS train when in sight of the points. These things happen, we’ll build on the pace and work hard to ensure we can maximise our results already in Zandvoort.”

Valtteri Bottas (car number 77):
Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN C42 (Chassis 01/Ferrari)
Race result: DNF
Fastest lap: n/a
Tyres: New Soft (2 laps)

Zhou Guanyu (car number 24):

Race result: 14th
Fastest lap: 1:52.317 (Lap 30)
Tyres: New Medium (14 laps) – New Medium (14 laps) – New Soft (16 laps)

Valtteri Bottas: “We had pace today and, with such a mixed-up grid, there could have been opportunities to get a good result, so it’s disappointing to finish my race so early. It was a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time: I saw Latifi spin towards the left, and all I could do was take evasive action to avoid a collision. Unfortunately, I spun on the grass and ended up stuck in the gravel: I tried to go forward and back, but couldn’t move. It’s not the birthday present I wanted, but hopefully I can still have some fun tonight, before we turn our focus on next week.”

Esteban Ocon

BWT Alpine F1 Team secured its fourth double top ten finish in a row with Esteban Ocon seventh in a thrilling, incident-packed Belgian Grand Prix at Spa-Francorchamps. Esteban enjoyed a superb, overtaking-dominated display as he progressed from sixteenth to seventh for his six points. Esteban made a sensible start and did well to stay out of trouble as he moved towards the points-scoring positions.

Esteban made two double overtakes - one into the final chicane - the other in the closing stages of the race on Sebastian Vettel and Pierre Gasly into Les Combes to jump from ninth to seventh.

Esteban Ocon: "What a way to wrap up a fantastic weekend for the team. The car was fast, and I had a lot of fun racing today, especially with those double overtakes. Well done to the team for their work this weekend; we can all be proud of ourselves. I felt confident all race, and the car felt great. Who knows what could've happened if we had started further up the road! We leave Spa satisfied, knowing it was a job well done, as well as a good haul of points for the team to extend our fourth position in the Constructors' Championship. Bring on Zandvoort."

In its eight-year history, the 100th Formula E race took place in Seoul, South Korea, on Saturday, 13 August. The season's final race saw the Mercedes-EQ Formula E Team contest their last E-Prix before bowing out from the racing series after three successful seasons. Stoffel Vandoorne finished P5 at the finish line in P5 and scored crucial points in the final race on Sunday. Nyck de Vries needed to retire his damaged car in the pits after contact with another car. The result meant that both World Championships would be decided in the penultimate race.

Mercedes-EQ driver Stoffel Van Doorne wins the Drivers' World Championship title in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship for the first time in his career. He finishes in the points in 15 of this season's 16 races, finishing in P1 in Monaco and P11 in Mexico and a total of 8 podiums. Mercedes-Q Team took seven wins and 23 podium finishes from 42 races. In the all-electric racing series, the team took home two double World Championship titles after three seasons. Mercedes QPR's Nyck Nyck ended the season as runner-up with a 33-point deficit with Mitch Evans.

Stoffel Vandoorne, Team Driver and Championship Winner: “Wow, I’m speechless. It’s fantastic – the whole season has just been great. It’s an incredible feeling when you think about what we’ve achieved together this year. Thank you to the whole team for making this possible. The car was superb again today, and everyone in the team deserves this success. We have accomplished something very special together.”

Alfa Romeo Team ORLEN

Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN saw a race spent nearly entirely within the top ten come to nothing as Zhou Guanyu finished 13th and Valtteri Bottas retired from the Hungarian Grand Prix. The race marks the end of the first part of the season, with the summer break now allowing the team to regroup and return to the performance levels shown throughout the spring.

Frédéric Vasseur, Team Principal: “A day that promised much at its beginning left us disappointed in the end. The start put us on the back foot, losing five places with both cars and setting up a tough afternoon to recover some points. Valtteri was able to break into the top ten and was there until the closing stages, but in the end a fuel system issue meant he had to retire with a couple of laps to go. Zhou’s afternoon was also compromised at the start, he was able to recover to 13th in the end but, as a team, we hoped for a lot more. It is a shame after the good performance we delivered in qualifying yesterday, but we now have a summer break to understand what went wrong and come back into the points for the final three European races of the season at the end of summer.”

Esteban Ocon

Esteban Ocon came in ninth place at the Hungarian Grand Prix to help the BWT Alpine F1 Team finish the Formula 1 summer break in fourth place in the 2022 F1 Constructors’ Championship, scoring six points.

Esteban Ocon competed in a hard-fought 70-lap race in Budapest, executing a one-stop Medium to Hard strategy. On the final lap, Esteban struggled to keep behind Sebastian Vettel, which he achieved by 0.1 seconds at the finish line.

Esteban Ocon: “We can be happy to score points with both cars today and that’s always a positive especially as we go into the season break. I don’t think we quite maximised our potential during the race and we’ll discuss as a team what we can do to improve. The one-stop was challenging today but we made it work to score points and I had to defend hard from Seb [Vettel] on the last lap. Overall, we’re still heading into the break in fourth in the Constructors’ Championship and we’ll be hungry to extend our lead in a few weeks’ time. I’m proud of the team for the improvements in performance over the last couple of months and we’ll aim to continue this upwards trajectory when the season returns after the well-deserved rest.”

Alfa Romeo Team ORLEN

Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN left the Circuit Paul Ricard empty-handed on a difficult Sunday on which Valtteri Bottas finished 14th. Zhou Guanyu’s race was cut short by a technical issue. The team will aim to return immediately at next week’s Hungarian Grand Prix, the last race before the summer break.

Frédéric Vasseur, Team Principal:
“We were confident, before the race, we could convert some decent grid positions into points, but sadly it wasn’t the case this afternoon. Valtteri struggled off the line and had to take evasive action as there were a few tangles ahead of him. We found ourselves with two cars at the bottom of the field by the end of the first lap, and it was always going to be hard to recover into the top ten from there. We had a decent pace – Zhou showed it when running in clean air after his stop – but that was not enough to make up ground today. In the end, we brought one car home outside the points and had to retire the other with a power unit issue: not the result we hoped for, but at least we’ll have an opportunity to bounce back immediately in Hungary. We’ll analyse today and understand what happened, especially because we expect the weather conditions to be similar next weekend.”

Esteban Ocon

The BWT Alpine F1 Team climbed to fourth in the Constructors' Championship after scoring double points at the French Grand Prix at Circuit Paul Ricard, with Esteban Ocon finishing eighth.

Esteban was given a five-second penalty after colliding with Yuki Tsunoda on lap one. Still, he recovered the deficit and finished the race with points after making a well-executed outside pass on McLaren's Daniel Ricciardo around the outside of turn 10.

Esteban Ocon: "The goal today was to score points with both cars, and we've done just that! I'm happy with my race today, and it was brilliant to drive in front of the home fans, who have been incredible all weekend, so thanks to them for all their support. It was tough in the heat, and I enjoyed the on-track racing with some tight battles. We're now fourth in the Constructors' Championship, so we leave here feeling very positive and motivated to keep that position. I hope we race in France next year as there is nothing quite like a home Grand Prix. Merci to all the fans and allez Alpine!"

Porsche Mobil 1™ Supercup Round 4 -Spielberg

BWT Lechner Racing experienced a fantastic weekend at their Austrian home race at the Red Bull Ring near Spielberg: In front of a huge crowd of more than 100 000 spectators at the 4.326 km scenic circuit in the Styrian Alpes, Dylan Pereira from Luxembourg won the fourth round of the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup 2022 ahead of Laurin Heinrich and his BWT Lechner Racing teammate Bastian Buus, who claimed his first Supercup Podium ever after a very strong race.

Harry King in P4 completed the very impressive team result for the Austrian squad, which at the half time of the season now leads in all three championships: Pereira, the first driver to win two races in this season, took over the lead in the overall classification from Larry ten Voorde, who had to retire after a collision shortly before the end of the race, while Buus and BWT Lechner Racing extended their advantage in the rookie and team championship.

Alfa Romeo Team ORLEN

Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN nearly completed a pit-lane-to-points comeback at the Austrian Grand Prix, as Valtteri Bottas finished 11th and Zhou Guanyu 14th in a hectic race at the Red Bull Ring.

Frédéric Vasseur, Team Principal: “It’s been a difficult weekend for us, and to nearly come away with a point despite all that happened shows the attitude of this team. With Valtteri starting from the Pit Lane and Zhou in P13, we knew we had a tough job ahead of us if we wanted to come away with a good result, and we very nearly did. It was a hectic race, with lots of battling and action – a great advertisement for our sport: for the team, we had nearly delivered a great comeback, but the tyre advantage Alonso had on the final lap was too much for Valtteri to overcome, and Zhou’s penalty really put an end to his hopes of points. It’s disappointing to leave without a point, but we will regroup and aim to start scoring again in France.”

Esteban Ocon

Esteban Ocon finished in fifth place at the Austrian Grand Prix, his highest finish of the season. Ocon believes that he and his team had "the perfect weekend" after drawing level on points with McLaren in the constructor championship.

He started the race in sixth place and made a strong start, reaching as high as third on the first lap. After coming in for a pit stop on lap 15, the Alpine driver had to battle his way through the field and knocked off impressive overtakes on Zhou Guanyu and Yuki Tsunoda.

After overtaking Lewis Hamilton on lap 30, George Russell overtook him on lap 60. After Carlos Sainz's retirement, Ocon finished fifth in what he described as an "awesome" weekend.
