Ferrari has finally won the SRHF1 Constructors Championship after coming close in 2018. The Italians dominated this season and secured the title with 4 races to go with Ivan Georgiev's victory last Thursday in Suzuka.
It was all-out domination from the Canadian-Macedonian driver in Japan. Georgiev took the Pole Position nearly 2 tenths ahead of Riera. The race was shaping up to be a titanic battle between the Ferraris and the Mercedes, but it all went wrong at the end of lap one when Mackey lost control of his Ferrari at the Casio Triangle while running in 4th. His Ferrari was facing the wrong way and caused a massive pile-up that mixed up the entire field. Riera was one of the unlucky drivers from the incidents and was forced the retire after just one lap. Nevertheless, the fight for the lead was head-on between Georgiev and Montero with Montero edging the Ferrari temporarily. Meanwhile, Magasrevy was running 3rd just looking into the distance as the leaders battled each other.
The whole race dynamic changed on lap 29 when Montero touched the grass coming up the hill of the Dunlop Curve and got sent off directly into the barrier ending his race. This now meant that Georgiev would just need to cruise to the end having a safe margin over Magasrevy now in 2nd. Positions would remain relatively unchanged and Georgiev took the chequered flag having led 30 out of 53 laps. Magasrevy and Walcott rounded up the podium.
We are now four races away from ending the 2019 season and potentially crowning a new Champion. Only Mackey and Montero still have a mathematical chance against Championship Leader Ivan Georgiev. Will we see a change in luck for Mackey and Montero in Mexico? Will Georgiev pull away even further? We'll find out after the conclusion of the SRHF1 2019 Mexican Grand Prix!
