F3 Asia: Patrick Pasma wins first victory


20-year-old Finn Patrick Pasma took his first victory in Asian Formula 3, winning the first race on Saturday at the circuit in Dubai. He competes for the Australian team Evans GP, as does Irina Sidorkova, a Russian SMP Racing driver. Irina continues to progress and today finished 14th, despite the effects of a hand injury sustained last week.

Kush Maini, the pilot of the Indian team Mumbai Falcons, started from pole, and Pasma started the race from second position and immediately tried to attack the leader. He did not succeed in going forward in the first laps, but these two were noticeably separated from the rest of the peloton.

Already on the third lap, the race was neutralized by the appearance of a safety car, this happened due to the U-turn of the car of the Arab racer Amna Al-Qubaysi.

After the restart, Mainy retained the first position, and Roy Nissani, the pilot of the Hitech GP, who managed to get ahead of two rivals at once – Pierre-Louis Chauvet and Guan Yu Zhou came in third. By the way, it is they who occupy the first two places in the individual classification.

However, Nissan could not hold on to this position. When Pasma finally got ahead of Mainy, Roy also rushed to the attack on the Indian, claiming for 2nd place, but did not keep the car under control, she hooked Mainy’s car, as a result both got off. The safety car reappeared on the track.

After that, the race was no longer resumed, Pasma won the victory, Guang Yu Zhou finished second, Chauvet took third place, retaining the lead in the individual competition. The fourth distance was finished by David Vidales from the Prema team, Roman Stanek, the Czech driver of the Hiteck GP, closed the top five.

As already mentioned, Irina Sidorkova was 14th, although, of course, the gatherings of five rivals helped her partly.

“The race is strange and the place is good. I am the 14th! ” – so briefly Ira commented on the results of the first Saturday race in Dubai. Today she has one more start.
