With everything on the line going into the final day of the season, the pressure was on as the Frenchman looked to hold onto a Championship advantage, while Vesti attempted to overturn a sizeable deficit, coming very close to doing so at the final hurdle.
Starting from P14 after a less than ideal Qualifying session, the ART driver remained steadfast in his belief that the title was within his grasp, while Vesti was defiant to the very end in pursuit of his rival.
Alongside Pourchaire’s F2 achievement, teammate Victor Martins aimed to beat PREMA Racing’s Oliver Bearman to the rookie of the year honours, with the theme of ART vs PREMA continuing into the Teams’ Championship fight also.
With one final chance for drivers to impress and with both the Drivers’ and Teams’ honours on the line on the last day of the season, witness the action from inside the garages, behind the podium and with the teams as F2 signs off in style for 2023.
You can watch all of Season 5 and the chance to get closer to Formula 2 than ever before, with all episodes available on F1 YouTube and F1TV.
