Seppanen Claims Race 4 for Second Win of the Weekend

Finland’s Elias Seppanen bounced back to snatch the final race of the FIA Formula 4 SEA Championship – fueled by Petron – at the Sepang International Circuit today.

The 16-year-old Seppanen, who had to withdraw at the end of the second lap of Race 3 earlier this afternoon due to technical reasons, rebounded to claim Race 4 in 18 minutes 46.542 seconds.

And once again, Sami Meguetounif recorded his third second-place finish in a row, 0.546s behind the winner, with Frederico Peters of Portugal finishing third in 18:54.780s.

Seppanen, winner of the first race on Friday, was naturally happy with the win as he had to fend off challenges from a determined Meguetounif in wet conditions.

“Of course, I am happy to win the race, considering it was not an easy afternoon especially as everyone was at the top of their game,” said Seppanen.
