Ajith at FIA 2010 Formula 2 Championship Held at Silverstone UK
Ajith Kumar, one of the leading stars in Kollywood and now a professional race driver, finished 18th in both races of FIA 2010 Formula 2 Championship, in what was his first competitive race meeting for several years. The Championship kickstarted in Silverstone, UK on April 18.
Ajith Kumar, who admitted his target had simply been to acclimatise to the car and complete the race, produced a sensible and considered performance over the course of the weekend. Significantly Ajith Kumar demonstrated session-by-session improvement, closing the gap between himself and pole position by almost two seconds over the two qualifying sessions. He will look to continue such improvements as he continues to gain experience over the course of the season.
In the very first race of the FIA 2010 F2 Championships, Ajith Kumar completed the race in 18th position after starting in 22nd position on the grid. With a personal best lap timing of 1:44.007, Ajith ensured that he stayed on track for the entire race. “This was the agenda right from the start. The intention is to get a complete feel of the car for the first two races and then only start to look at better finish positions from the next race onwards,” says Ajith. In the second race of the day, Ajith was the penultimate finisher at 18th position with Benjamin Lariche in 19th. Ajith’s personal best lap timing was 1:45.537.
