First race weekend for Jan Przyrowski at F4 Spanish Championship, on the first round of the spanish series. Although a huge amount of points was possible, Przyrowski came home with an impressive P3 in Race 3, and solid pace in the other races.

Two days of testing in Madrid precede the first racing weekend of the Formula 4 Spanish Championship, with Jan Przyrowski reaching the top of the table on the last day of testing.

The real action didn’t take place until Saturday, where qualifying for races 1 took place in a very sunny midday, after Przyrowski topped the table in the first free practice of the weekend, and matched second, in the second free practice.

First Qualifying of the weekend came with an early penalty, which came from FP2, in a pit lane infringement, crossing the line to enter the pits. That meant a five position penalty for Przyrowski, who qualified in a solid P18, with old tyres, for the first race of the weekend.

The last session of Saturday’s journey was the first race of the weekend, with Przyrowski starting in P23. With some great moves on track, Jan recovered till he reached a strong P14, which could have been more, if a red flag didn’t come early, with eight minutes to reach the end. In spite of that, Przyrowski showed a blistering pace that gave the young polish star high hopes for Sunday’s journey.

Sunday morning kick started the last day of the weekend with the second qualifying of the season, where Jan Przyrowski achieved a great P4 with fresh tyres, leaving all to play for in the third and last race of the weekend.

The second race in Jarama took place nearby midday in another sunny journey in Madrid. Przyrowski, who started in P15 taking the second lap of yesterday’s qualifying session, made a solid improvement to reach P12, in a short track action race where there were a lot of Safety Car and yellow flags.

Last race of the weekend saw Jan Przyrowski finish in P4, and achieve a very strong P3 and first podium of the season for the Campos Racing driver, though to a penalty of another driver in front. Even though he was in place to fight for the win, the race had plenty of yellow flags and safety car interventions that didn’t let Jan show his real pace, that was there to fight for the victory.

In spite of that, the polish driver finished the weekend with a very solid day, showing a lot of pace, that puts him in a great position to continue climbing in Portimao, in three weeks time.

Jan Przyrowski:

“We had a lot of pace throughout the weekend in all sessions, but a change of tyres in Qualifying 1 compromised our results in Race 1 and 2. In Race 3 we were fighting to win, and when we were P2, a red flag put us back in P4. Mixed feelings, but happy with my first podium, and the pace is there to win and we will try to do so in the next round”
