Columns: From Kart to F1
The Asian F4 and Formula Regional calendar continues, once again on the Dubai circuit. Unprecedented victories in the rich race program.

Formula 4 UAE
The face of the F4 UAE continues to change with different results and protagonists. In the first race of the weekend, after taking pole position, it was Rafael Camara (Prema) who won his first single-seater race, battling for a long time with his teammate Charlie Wurz (Prema). The same son of art was able to replicate the tussle in Race 2, this time winning it. 

In the third race in the program, another Brazilian supremacy with Rafael Camara author of a personal double. The fourth and last race then ended with the third different winner of the competition, the Irishman Alex Dunne (PHM Racing). An amazing victory for the latter, winner also thanks to the red flag and the 5sec penalty inflicted on a large part of the grid. Dunne, in fact, was the only one to correctly respect the red flag regime, stopping on the grid, without returning to the pit lane, unlike the opponents. Under the checkered flag, it was Antonelli who passed first but with a gap insufficient to fill the penalty, handing the victory to Dunne.  

In the weekend, it will be time for the fourth round on the calendar with Aiden Neate first in the championship, also thanks to the podium placings, second Wurz and third Antonelli. 

Formula Regional Asian Championship
The confrontation in Formula Regional is on with three more significant races as far as the forces on the field are concerned. In the first race of the weekend in Dubai, victory once again for Sebastian Montoya (Mumbai Falcons Racin Limited), capable of leading his team's hat-trick thanks to the second place of Arthur Leclerc and the third of the Swede Dino Beganovic. 
Beganovic was then the protagonist of a textbook comeback in Race 2, triumphing from seventh to first position in a total of sixteen laps, second the Russian Michael Belov (Evans GP PTY LTD), third Leclerc. 
The weekend ended with the Monegasque again on the podium, this time on the top step of Race 3, top 3 completed by Pepe Marti (Pinnacle Motorsport) and Dinalo Van T'Hoff (Pinnacle Motorsport).
