World Championship

Oscar Piastri and Jack Doohan both qualified inside the OK-Junior top 30, Piastri 21st and Doohan 26th.

The duo has recorded some top results in the heat racing, Piastri actually winning his final heat (heat results 4-5-4-4-1). Doohan had a best result of second, but also had a couple of bad ones (heat results 22-3-2-29-24).

After the heats, Oscar is equal second on points, but ranked 4th overall due to countback based on qualifying. He starts his pre-final off P2. Jack is ranked 43rd and will start his pre-final 22nd.
