Summer day 24 – Tobias Hegewald, Will Bratt

#Tobias Hegewald – 5
Tobias has had a great 2011 F2 season so far, only missing out on the points twice and taking two podiums as well. He’s been helped by Will Bratt’s absence at Brands Hatch, and is now only one point behind the Brit. It was at Brands Hatch that he took pole position for the first race, though a cunning move by Jack Clarke at the start saw him fall to third. His best finish came at Magny-Cours when he came second in the first race.
Qualifying-wise, he only missed out on the top ten at the Nurburgring. He should continue to do well in the rest of the season, and although he’s very unlikely to win, he could secure third or fourth at a pinch.

Points: 91
Best qualifying: 1
Worst qualifing: 11
Best finish: 2 (Magny-Cours race 1)
Worst finish: 12 (Nurburgring race 1)
Retirements: 1

Will Bratt – 4
Despite being fourth in the championship with a win, four podiums and a pole under his belt, Will Bratt had to miss his second home race of the season due to a lack of funding. He was disqualified from the second race at Silverstone having failed to obey a drive-through penalty and being black flagged – he had finished second. Magny-Cours was a bit quieter, but Spa saw a return to form as he took the win in the first race then pole and third in the second. The first race at the Nurburgring could have been better, but he still took some points and then second in the second race.
Apart from his disqualification, Will has finished in the points in every race. And if he’d been able to compete at Brands Hatch, he would have undoubtedly done well there as well. Watch out for Will in the rest of the season.

Points: 92
Best qualifying: 1
Worst qualifing: 8
Best finish: 1 (Spa race 1)
Worst finish: 8 (Magny-Cours race 1)
Retirements: 0
