It was my first time following F1H2o boat world championship. what a weekend, even fight with the weather anyway at the end we could see this boats and was really impressive.. Here is the finla gallery.
Team Abu Dhabi’s Alex Carella led from start-to-finish to take a brilliant victory in the UIM F1H2O Grand Prix of France on Lac Leman.
The three-time world champion made the perfect start off the dock from pole and was comfortably clear of Philippe Chiappe and Sami Selio when the yellow flag was raised on lap 11 after Australian Grant Trask barrel-rolled out of the race from fifth place.
At the restart Carella showed the same commitment and despite the added distraction of a loose canopy cover and being chased and put under pressure to the chequered flag by Selio, held him off to take his second consecutive win on Lac Leman and a 13th Grand Prix victory.
The restart changed the shape of the race behind the leader with a clutch of drivers making up places; Selio immediately passed Chiappe who then suddenly slowed and for the third time in three starts in Evian the gremlins struck again and the defending world champion forced to retire, his race ending on lap 17, Selio’s second consecutive podium of the year moving him to the top of the driver’s world championship standings.
The drive of the afternoon belonged to American Shaun Torrente after crashing in qualifying earlier in the day and starting from 15th. The Victory Team driver’s hopes of salvaging any points looked very thin after a poor start and dropping further back but he recovered well to get up to ninth when the yellow flag came out.
