It was yet another eventful race last Thursday when a chaotic last lap from race leader and unofficial winner Argenis Riera ended up involved in several incidents with second place and arch-rival Cory Mackey.
Riera would perform an illegal block on the back straight causing the two cars to touch, then at turn 12, the Mercedes driver hit the brakes too late causing a collision with Mackey. Mackey would respond trying to pass Riera in two attempts but they were both poorly executed causing a collision in both tries. In the end, both drivers received the equivalent of a Drive-Thru Pits penalty or 20 seconds added to their final race time for their final lap antics. This meant that Montero, who unofficially finished the race just 4 seconds behind Riera in third, was handed over the race win after starting from 20th place. The penalty at the front also meant that Magasrevy moved 2 positions finishing in second place.
Riera and Mackey would end up in 3rd and 4th respectively with Georgiev in 5th, still unable to secure the Drivers title. This now means that if Cory Mackey can't outscore Georgiev by 15 points or more in Brazil then the Drivers Championship goes to the Macedonian.
Stay tuned for the second of three back-to-back races next week from the Autodromo Jose Carlos Pace, better known as Interlagos, for the SRHF1 2019 Brazilian Grand Prix.
