Eurocup title glory for Briton Max Fewtrell!

Max Fewtrell has become the third British driver in four years to win the Formula Renault Eurocup title.

A pair of fourth place finishes in the season’s final two rounds, held at Spain’s Barcelona F1 circuit (21 Oct), were more than enough for the Birmingham driver to lift the title.

The results followed victories in both the previous rounds at another F1 track, Hockenheim in Germany, which had taken him past main rival Christian Lundgaard of Denmark. 

These in fact made it three in a row for 19-year-old Max after he’d won the previous race at the nearby Nurburgring.

In total he has ended the season with six wins and a further six podium results from 20 rounds for his team, R-ace GP. 

Furthermore, he joins an illustrious list of drivers to have been crowned Champion of Renault Sport’s FRenault Eurocup crown. Many have gone on to compete in Formula 1.

Notably the winners in 2016 and 2017 were two other Britons, Jack Aitken and Llando Norris (now confirmed as a McLaren F1 driver for 2019).

Max, a member of Renault Sport’s exclusive young driver Academy, said: “I am at a loss for words… what a season!

“We started the season really strong before dropping to fifth place in the general classification after Monaco. We had to stay calm; we didn’t panic and continued to work flat out to crawl back.

“I think that we showed everyone what we are capable of and I would like to thank Christian, who is a stout adversary who pushed me to my limits all the way to the end of the season.”

Renault Sport has confirmed that Formula Renault Eurocup will move to a new car for 2019. CLICK HERE for more.
