2024 FIA Formula 2 Great Britain Sprint Race report

Kush Maini rounded out the top three in the FIA Formula 2 Sprint Race at Silverstone, with Gabriel Bortoleto just behind in fourth place at the British venue.

Silverstone was cold and wet for Saturday’s 21-lap race and the race began with a rolling start with Kush third and Gabriel fifth.

Gabriel made a spectacular move on Jak Crawford around Maggotts on the opening lap to sit fourth, and Kush applied pressure on Zane Maloney, before the rain began to intensify and affect visibility quite drastically. This brought out the red flag until the rain eased.

Conditions improved quickly and the race resumed on lap seven, before a long Safety Car on the following lap for multiple incidents.

Once the racing continued, Gabriel was able to hold Victor Martins until an incident left him with a comfortable gap behind. Meanwhile, Kush maintained his pressure on Maloney for second.

There was another late Virtual Safety Car which interrupted the flow of the race, but Kush went on to finish the race in third. Gabriel completed a strong team result with fourth.

With the 11 points picked up, Invicta Racing returns to the top of the Teams’ Championship ahead of Sunday’s Feature race which is set to be held at 9:55am BST (UTC+1).


  • Kush Maini: P03, six points
  • Gabriel Bortoleto: P04, five points

KUSH MAINI: “The rain made it very tough, but the main thing is that we brought home a good number of points for the team today. It was a very challenging race with the various stoppages. We will do our homework ahead of tomorrow, where it remains unclear what sort of race we will have.”

GABRIEL BORTOLETO: “The conditions were very difficult out there today, so it is a good feeling to come away with some valuable points. The pace was good throughout and in the different conditions which hopefully puts us in a good place whatever the weather may bring tomorrow.”
