Following his sensational finish-to-finish victory at the Dubai Autodrome on Saturday, Sebastián Montoya earned a ninth and a fourth place in the third session of the F3 Asia Regional races this Sunday.
When he took the inverted grid of the first race in 10th place, “product” of having won on Saturday, he was mixed in the traffic and had to relocate to the 29-car grid to avoid an accident. Then, from 20th place, he began a forceful comeback until reaching the ‘top ten’ group again in box 9.
In the second race, from fourth place, he finished in the same place without managing to get the nose of his car convincingly into the leading trio in which his teammate, Arthur Leclerc won.

What leaves its passage through the Asian Regional
Sebastián Montoya and Juan Pablo Montoya
It was an incredible weekend for Montoya’s team, the Mumbai Falcons, because every one of their running backs won and made 1-2-3 on Saturday and 1-3 in the first yesterday, which went to the Swedish Dino Beganovic.
Montoya ends his season in this series because he wants to preserve his rookie status for the European series in which there is a maximum of previous races allowed to maintain that status.
What’s coming for Sebastián Montoya
Before starting the European F3 on April 23, he will race in the 12 Hours of Sebring together with his dad on March 19 in the DragonSpeed ??team driving a prototype in the LMP2 Oreca class 07-Gibson, which Juan Pablo will manage in the rest of the championship with Henrik Hedman.
Sebastian’s time in the Asia series gave much more than expected because he was learning and experience and finished with two wins, one of them in his first race as a rookie, as well as three pole positions and several fastest laps.
