BRDC Formula 4 2014 - Snetterton


While his big brother Jolyon was flying the flag for Comma in Austria and extending his lead in the GP2 Series championship, Comma-sponsored 16 year old Will Palmer was also making fresh history in the Snetterton rounds of the BRDC Formula 4 championship on the weekend of June 21/22nd.

Having shown his winning potential with a 2013 Formula 4 Winter series victory at Brands Hatch, young master Will produced mature, top drawer performances to record his maiden main-season Formula 4 win in Saturday's Race 1 on the Norfolk circuit, convert an eighth place grid start into sixth place in Race 2, and then do the weekend double with a lights to flag victory in Race 3. In the process, he became only the third driver - after Charlie Robertson in 2013 and George Russell at Silverstone earlier this season – to win two BRDC Formula 4 races in the same weekend. Along the way, he also established a new record – 86 – for the number of championship points scored in a single Formula 4 triple-header event.

Palmer's fruitful weekend work for the HHC Motorsport team promotes him to third in the BRDC Formula 4 championship table, ten points behind team-mate Raoul Hyman - who kept his title challenge on course with second place in Race 1 and third in Race 3 - and 31 points behind championship leader George Russell of Lanan racing who similarly kept his points clock ticking over nicely with third place podiums in Races 1 and 2 and sixth in Race 3.
Russell's team-mate, Arjun Maini scored a resounding maiden Formula 4 victory from pole position in Race 2, adding eighth in Race 1 and fourth in Race 3 to boost his points and slot in just six points behind Palmer in the championship table. HHC's Sennan Fielding took fourth in Race 1 and second in Race 3 to be in fifth championship spot at the end of proceedings.

HHC Motorsport were comfortably top of the Snetterton team contest, claiming five of the nine available podium positions during the weekend, including a clean sweep of Race 3.
"It's been an amazing weekend," said Palmer. "I almost got pole yesterday, a great win in race one and now another win today, it's absolutely fantastic. I have to say a huge thanks to the team. HHC have given me a fantastic car this weekend and for the team to get a 1-2-3 result is a massive achievement. I've been getting stronger with each round and Snetterton is a good track for me. We're at Oulton Park next, where I've already tested, and it's been a good track for me as well. Hopefully we can have another good weekend there and aim for another win to continue my title challenge."
