RaceFans Round-up: Enzo Trulli wins Formula 4 UAE title by one point

In the round-up: Enzo Trulli, the 15 year old son of one-time F1 race winner Jarno Trulli, clinched the Formula 4 UAE championship title yesterday after his title rival tangled with another driver in the final race.

Trulli takes F4 UAE title

Trulli’s rival Dilano Van’t Hoff, who was also competing in his first single-seater championships since graduating from karts, led the series for much of the season. The title fight went down to the wire in the quadruple-header season finale at Dubai.

Cram driver Trulli was unable to start the second of those due to a suspension problem and went into the final race a point behind his rival. He started fifth, two places ahead of Van’t Hoff on the partially reversed grid, but fell behind his rival on the first lap.

The Safety Car was deployed due to an early incident, and after it came in on lap three Van’t Hoff tangled with Hamda Al Qubaisi and went wide. Trulli took the advantage and grabbed third place, which he held to the flag. Van’t Hoff kept up the pursuit and crossed the line just three-tenths of a second behind Trulli, who took the title by a single point, despite having won four races during the year to Van’t Hoff’s five.

Trulli, who said his father cried when he clinched the title, will continue racing in the Spanish F4 championship this year with Drivex.
