The final day of SMP F4 NEZ Championship at ADM Raceway, Russia, ended in Belgian celebration. Amaury Cordeel took the pole position for the race on Sunday and crossed the finishing line first.

Belgian Amaury Cordeel joined the series last weekend at Moscow Raceway and showed his talent today by lining on the pole position for the third and last race of the weekend. Cordeel completed his perfect Sunday by winning the race.

- I had a great start and then the safety car came out. I had a good pace all the way to be able to win the race.

The third race was again full of action as yellow flags were already waving on the first lap due to close contact between Russians Artem Lobanenko and Nikita Aleksandrov. Cordeel didn’t have problems keeping up the good pace and ending the weekend with the best possible result.

Finnish Konsta Lappalainen kept his second position all the way through but didn’t have a chance to overtake Cordeel.

- This is a difficult track for overtaking, you almost always finish in the same position you started with. Should have had better time in qualifying to be able to be on the pole, then it might have been an easy win. I was close at some point but just didn’t have a chance to try anything.

Russian Michael Belov completed the podium with a third position. The series is in a thrilling midpoint as Finnish Konsta Lappalainen stepped into a 28-points lead in the Championship after two successful weekends in Moscow.

Now SMP F4 NEZ Championship will go west as the next race weekend will be driven in Finland in two weeks. A challenging Ahvenisto circuit will host the fifth round of the series on 1-2 September.
