ROUND 9-10: AHVENISTO, FINLAND (2,870 km)
REPORT RACE 1

Felix is on the podium again in Finland

          

Turn Two at the roller-coaster ride that is Ahvenisto


Qualifying for the first Formula Renault Sweden race of the weekend in Hämeenlinna, Finland, once again proved that Felix Rosenqvist and his Team BS Motorsport team-mate Daniel Roos are the class of the field in this year's campaign; Roos claimed Pole Position, just ahead of Rosenqvist. Felix, however, didn't get off to a great start and was passed by local hero Jesse Krohn in the run down to Turn 1 shortly after the lights went out. The Finnish Formula Renault championship races side-by-side with its Swedish counterpart this weekend, and Krohn entered the event as somewhat of a favourite after having grown up and lived in Hämeenlinna where the Ahvenisto circuit is situated - and after having spent the year gaining experience and winning in British Formula Renault. As the race progressed, Roos opened up a lead big enough to allow him to win comfortably as Felix got stuck behind Krohn's gearbox. Despite losing a lot of time chasing the Finn, Rosenqvist decided to play it safe and backed down from all potential overtaking opportunities to secure six new points for his overall title assault. Now, the focus is solely on tomorrow's race - Round 10 of the 2009 Swedish Formula Renault championship season.
