California Kid Czechs Out!
Alexander Rossi takes historic win in round six of Formula Master in Brno, Czech Republic. The Nevada City native took the lead from Nicolas Maulini on the opening lap and never looked back. Victory is first American success in this series and also the first for Czech team ISR Racing.
An excited Rossi related, “We had a good result yesterday and were confident with our dry set-up so it really was my race to lose. I had a good start, my best of the season so far, and the opening laps were pretty close but after that nothing happened.
“We still have a lot of work to do to be consistently at the top but this has definitely broken a barrier. Fabio [Leimer] and Jenzer Motorsport have done very well up until now but we will go to Brands Hatch looking for more strong results.”
Rossi is 17-years old and last year became the first American to win the Formula BMW Americas Championship and the World Finals, which will be rewarded in a taste of BMW-Sauber Formula 1 machinery at the end of the season.
