Field­ing to move on from Oul­ton night­mare

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

For­mer Bri­tish F4 points leader Sen­nan Field­ing has de­scribed his Oul­ton Park week­end as one to for­get.

The JHR Devel­op­ments driver had a slen­der lead head­ing to Cheshire but had a mis­er­able two days, pick­ing up just seven points and drop­ping to fourth in the stand­ings as a re­sult.

He started the event on the back foot, qual­i­fy­ing 14th for the opener. He scored a best fin­ish of eighth in race three.

“It was very dif­fi­cult – we tried a few things on the car and they didn’t work,” he said. “Every­one has their ups and downs but it’s so close up at the front and we just need to for­get about this week­end.”

Field­ing is now 42 points be­hind new Bri­tish F4 leader Petru Florescu.

Ar­den’s Luis Leeds also had a dif­fi­cult week­end. The Aussie suf­fered a bro­ken sus­pen­sion link in qual­i­fy­ing and he there­fore started at the back. His best re­sult was also eighth and he has dropped from sec­ond to fifth in the stand­ings.
