American Shaun Torrente Wins F1 H2O Season Opener in Qatar

Written by 

 

American Shaun Torrente of Team Qatar came out hard to start the 2015 F1 H2O season off strong with the big win just moments ago at the Grand Prix of Qatar followed closely by Philippe Chiappe of CTIC Chine Team And Erick Stark of Team Nautice after some impressive racing overseas in Doha, Qatar.

 

From showing some great skills through the extremely gusty and rough conditions in the free practice round followed by putting up the fastest time in qualifying all eyes were on the home team favourite heading into the Grand Prix which he walked away with the top spot. 

 

It was however a tough weekend for Shaun’s ex teammate Alex Carella who was closely being watch as he was last seasons winner with Team Qatar but unfortunately did not have the same fortune today finishing 5th overall in the Grand Prix. This was however his first race behind the wheel of Team Abu Dhabi boat so were sure he’ll get settled in soon and be back on the podium in no time.

 

Teams now prepare for the journey to France for round 2 in June which details are still being finalized so will be sure to keep posted on updates and stay tuned for the full highlight reel from this past weekends season opener.
