Qatar team driver Alex Carella wins Formula 1 Grand Prix

The Qatar Team’s Alex Carella led Sunday’s Russian Grand Prix on the Nizhny Kaban Lake in Kazan from start to finish.

He recorded a stunning victory and narrowed the gap on team mate Jay Price of the United States to just two points in the H20 World Formula 1 Championship.

Price moved up from 15th at the start of the 40-lap event to finish third overall in an afternoon where two yellow flag incidents produced some thrilling racing and enabled the Qatar Team to continue their early season domination of the series.

Qatar’s Khalid Saleh Al-Shamlan finished second in the weekend’s second Formula 4S event to move 11 points ahead of Bimba Sjoholm at the top of the points standings for the Eurofin Trophy when the Swede was disqualified from the race for hitting a buoy.

Britain’s Matthew Palfreyman won the 25-lap Formula 4S race by 23.96 seconds.
