Drugovich gets his hands on the cup with victory in the Netherlands in F2 – Formula 2 News

Felipe Drugovich left the Netherlands with a hand on the cup and depending only on himself to win the 2022 Formula 2 season title at Monza, as early as next weekend. With the victory in the main race, the pole position and the fastest lap in the sprint on Saturday, the Brazilian added 28 more points to his account and saw his main rival, Théo Pourchaire, leave almost zero, scoring just the point of tenth place this year. Sunday (4).

Now, 70 points separate the two, and this scenario opens up the chance for Drugovich to be champion in the short race that opens the Italian round, the penultimate one on the calendar. For that, he would only have to prevent the Frenchman from deducting two points from the current difference, because, as the sprint is worth ten, there would be 68 more in play (considering the points from pole position plus the points given for each faster lap in the round) . With a lead of 69, he could no longer be caught, taking the title with three races to spare.

This also means that Drugovich can be champion even if he and Pourchaire do not score in the sprint race, as the Brazilian would keep the 70 points in front, and could no longer be reached.
