Championship leader Jamie Caroline is confident he’ll take the British Formula 4 title, despite Arden’s Oscar Piastri closing the gap for a second weekend in a row.
Caroline currently has a gap of 45.5 points to Piastri in second, a gap that has dropped by more than 20 points since the summer break.
With two wins at Knockhill, Piastri took another point from Caroline’s lead but, with three rounds remaining, Caroline is confident he’ll keep the lead at the top of the standings.
“We came here to take points and, unfortunately [Piastri]’s taken a point away, which is next to nothing,” he told Overtake Motorsport. “I’m not too fussed about that.
“I know the Carlin team is strong at the next few rounds. My best track will be Brands Hatch GP, so I’m not stressed or worried at all.
“I’m confident I can maintain the gap and the lead I’ve got.”
Caroline has taken a record breaking 10 wins this season, including the rearranged Oulton Park race last weekend, and believes he should have won more.
“We won one race [this weekend],” he said. “We should have won more. There was a clutch failure in [the last race] which was a race we should have won.”
There are still 75 points to be taken this season, meaning both Piastri and Carlin’s Logan Sargeant are mathematically in with a chance at beating Caroline to the title.
