Report

Background

The Rumus Asia Malaysia (公式アジア日本) was contested at the Sepang International Circuit, Kuala Lumpar in Malaysia. The event will be taking place the same weekend as the lesser known FIA F1 Championship. The last time RRR F1 visited the Sepang Circuit Superdelphinus came out victorious after a race long battle with the elements and Tomcheesey. It was a race to forget for fellow championship contender Sodamn Insane 6 who took a gamble on dry tyres too soon and ended up being lapped by the leaders on two ocassions. Smifaye will be looking to take the drivers title at the event needing 28 points to seal the deal. SuperD and Sodamn Insane 6 will be doing everything in their power to stop the Black Raptors driver from taking his second successive RRR F1 title.

To the shock of all the drivers the race started under dry conditions however there was a 4% chance of rain. This rain threat failed to materialise and the race was run under perfectly dry conditions. STR TommyB started on pole position but Smifaye got the better start and took the lead into the first corner, followed closely by the IndyAlfa driver. Smifaye pulled a lead out of about 5 or 6 seconds and decided to pit for the prime tyres. Meanwhile Mr Flobadob was on stunning form putting in some stunning laps which lead to Smifaye having to put his foot down again to ensure he would retake the lead on his last pit stop. Tomcheesey lead for much of the middle stint of the race due to his 1 stop strategy, the Feta Motorsport driver finally pitted half way through the race. Smifaye decided to pit with 6 laps to go for a fresh set of option tyres. He found himself behind Sodamn Insane 6 and was unsure of his strategy. It turned out that he had yet to pit for the last time and Smifaye took the win he needed to take his second F1 title.
