Super Formula: Liam Lawson became series vice-champion

Going into the final race of the season, Liam Lawson’s chances of winning the Japanese Super Formula title were very slim and depended not only on him, but rather on where his main rivals would finish today in Suzuka.

Liam started the race from pole position, but Kakunoshin Ota was ahead of him at the start and accelerated confidently from second position – and he took victory.

The New Zealand pilot, riding for Team Mugen, took second place, and with this outcome of the race, Ritomo Miata, the leader of the individual competition, only had to finish in the top six to secure victory in the championship and he climbed up. to the stage. The Miata ultimately won the title, scoring just 8 more points than Lawson over the course of the season.

The commentary shared by Super Formula’s press office on their social media pages is indicative: “Liam Lawson is undoubtedly a great racer and a very good person. Japanese fans will always support you, you have a bright future ahead of you!”

But Liam spent his debut season in the Japanese series very well, taking three wins and in the season finale he won pole for the first time. In any case, he proved his talent for speed, it was no coincidence that he became vice-champion of Super Formula and attracted so much attention when he replaced Daniel Ricciardo at AlphaTauri.
