MSA Team UK driver Alex Lynn became the latest winner of the prestigious Macau Formula Three Grand Prix on the event’s 60th anniversary today (17 November).
Lynn, aged 20 from Essex, led the entire race from pole position, beating Portuguese driver Antonio Felix da Costa by just over a second. Brazilian Pipo Derani completed the podium.
Rob Jones, Acting MSA Chief Executive, said: “The Macau Grand Prix is one of the most prestigious races in the world for a young racing driver to win, and a real milestone on the road to Formula One. Alex’s lights-to-flag victory highlights the calibre of talent on our Team UK programme, and we’re proud to have played a part in his latest success.
“We hope Alex’s win inspires his four fellow MSA Academy members hoping to be crowned the latest McLaren Autosport BRDC Award winner in December: Charlie Robertson, Chris Middlehurst, Seb Morris and Matt Parry.”
MSA Team UK graduate Alexander Sims finished fourth ahead of new member Jordan King, the reigning Cooper Tires British F3 International Series Champion. Team UK graduates Will Buller and Harry Tincknell were thirteenth and fourteenth respectively.
