THE MAINI BROTHERS IN ACTION THIS WEEKEND!
ARJUN AND KUSH MAINI ARE BOTH SET TO RACE THIS UPCOMING WEEKEND IN THEIR RESPECTIVE CHAMPIONSHIPS
Bangalore: Arjun Maini hops back into the driver’s seat as Round 2 of the FIA Formula 2 gets underway this Friday at Baku. Younger brother Kush Maini, who is racing in the British F3 for Lanan Racing is also consequently in action this Saturday, at Rockingham in round 2 of his championship.
After a promising build up to the season with Trident, Arjun started off round 1 by topping the practice session, but a very close qualifying session saw him start Race 1 from P14, and his weekend didn’t take off from there with P15 and P14 finishes in Races 1 and 2 respectively. Arjun looks to regroup from his weekend at Bahrain and is eager to get back out on track saying, “Baku always makes for a very entertaining race, being a street track, all the cars are going to be really close throughout the weekend. It will be a very challenging race and qualifying is going to be very important, the team and I have the pace to do well and we are ready.”
Kush’s debut F3 weekend at Oulton Park was a mixed bag, qualifying in the middle of the pack and finishing the first race in P9. He kept improving on his weekend though, with a P5 in Race 2 followed by a podium in the Race 3. Looking forward to his next race, he said, “The podium at Oulton is just a small thing to build upon, it’s a long season ahead and the car is looking fast, so I’m excited that the next race is here and it’s time to give my best.”
