The rain fell just as the Gen3 cars took to the albert park grand prix circuit in what is the second round of the year. the start of Race 4 was delayed and was time certain due to incidents in the Formula 3 qualifying.

A flag signalled the start to the race which was declared wet. In effect, this eliminated the multi-compound tyre requirement.

Starting P6 on the grid, Reynolds made a strong start moving to fifth before heavy contact which turned him coming into Turn 1 leaving him beached in the gravel at Turn 1. 

Matt echoed his strong performance in yesterday’s sessions, running in the early laps P11.

A yellow flag and safety car came out as Percat had an electrical fire on lap 2.

Reynolds pitted with 5 minutes to go with Payne running in P19. 

 Another safety car closed the race which ended with only 3 racing laps.

Payne and Reynolds concluded their race in P19 and P23 respectively.

An update to the results: Matt Payne – P17

Matt Payne said:

“I got a good start; jumped off the line well and then we were sitting in P11 which was good. I had a good stop – got jumped by Heimgartner but was clean out of the pits. The safety car came out which definitely hurt us a lot and I ended up falling a bit down the field. Overall, it was a pretty good race from my side, I think I did the best job I could, and it was just unfortunate with the circumstances, but I’ve got to take the positives.”

 David Reynolds said:

“Not a great day again; wasn’t my fault at all – got a reasonable start which ended at Turn 1. I was trying to manage the bloke beside me and beat him into turn 1 and all of a sudden, I got drilled from behind and sent into the sand trap and that was my race over. we have 2 qualifying sessions tomorrow and a race, so I’m looking forward to seeing what we can achieve through the rest of the weekend.”

Tomorrow will see two Qualifying Sessions followed by Race 5 which begins at 5:30pm.
