Bortolotti about missed F1 chance at Red Bull: "Marko Knallhart, but fair!"

 Bortolotti about missed F1 chance at Red Bull: Before Lamborghini works driver and DTM leader Mirko Bortolotti became one of the best GT3 pilots in the world, the Italian living in Vienna was even allowed to dream of a Formula 1 career. Because in 2009 Helmut Marko brought the 19-year-old to his Red Bull junior program before he moved to the Ferrari-Driver Academy in 2010.

Evans would have to win the race from a starting series to become world champions, while Vandoorne is in any case a seventh place to win the title. "Mitch was a little more pressure today. He had to put a perfect qualifying and racing down. The fact that he did not get any further took some pressure from me, so I was able to concentrate on my qualifying," says Vandoorne at 'ran.de'.

The pole position secured in the duel of second former DTM pilot Antonio Felix da Costa (DS-Teeetah). The Portuguese beat Edoardo Mortara (Venturi). The start series two will form Jake Dennis (Andretti) and Vandoorne in the race. The positive surprise of qualifying was Daniel Ticktum (NIO), who was first able to move into the duel phase.

For the three German drivers, qualifying was also over after the group phase. Maximilian Günther (Nissan-E.Dams), fifth in group B, only missed the duel phase by 24 thousandths of the second. The two Porsche pilots Pascal Wehrlein and Andre Lotterer landed in the same group in positions eight and nine.

At Dragon-Penske there was a driver change on the second day of the Seoul e-prix. Antonio Giovinazzi has to stop on Sunday due to a hand injury. For the Italian, the French replacement driver of the Sacha Fenestraz team, who made his debut in Formula E, jumped in at short notice. The lack of experience, however, was noticeable to him that Fenestraz landed in the last place in Group B.

The last race of the 2022 Formula Eison is started at 9:00 a.m. CEST.
