In front of 100,000 people 15 year old Preston Hire driver, Luis Leeds has won the Opening race of the new Mexico F4 Series launched this weekend at the Mexico Grand Prix.
Luis scored his maiden F4 victory after his pole position yesterday.
Today Sunday, Luis lead from the outset to open up a 10 second gap before a safety car closed in the field. With one lap to go after the restart, Leeds maintained his lead to cross the line in first place.
Standing on the F1 podium Leeds was proud to hear the Australian National anthem play on Mexican soil. Leeds said “today’s the happiest day of my life so far, to hear the Australian National Anthem in Mexico is an honor. Without the support of Preston Hire and Peter O’Shea today wouldn’t have been possible”. I also want to thank Alex Molina for putting it all together. Thanks to RAM Racing in Mexico and Felipe Abed for all the support and making me welcome.
Leeds will return home to Australia today to focus on the next round of the Australian F4 series at Phillip Island with Dream Motorsport.
