Armaan eager to be back among points in F2 circuit

Spa-Francorchamps: Rejuvenated after a six-week break, Armaan Ebrahim is keen to earn some points when the fifth round of the Formula 2 Championship begins here this weekend.

Ebrahim had earned six points in the second round at Silverstone but missed out in third and fourth rounds.

Sponsored by JK Tyre, Amaron and Trimex, Armaan had a test session at Snetterton earlier this month when he ran much of the four outings with a configuration to conform to the track conditions at the famous Belgian circuit.

The circuit is one of the five current Formula One venues added to the F2 series this season.

"After a decent start to my campaign at Silverstone, I had a disappointing outing at Magny-Cours during the third and fourth rounds. I want to put all that behind me and focus on gaining some points at Spa. During the test at Snetterton this month, we opted to run on old tyres and with a low down-force as part of our preparations for the Spa rounds.”

"It will be my second outing at Spa since 2009 and I am quite excited to be racing at this World famous track," said Armaan.

The Spa weekend opens with two free practice sessions on Friday, followed by two qualifying rounds and the two races over the next two days.

"We had a long break after Magny-Cours and I just can`t wait to get back to racing. I spent the free time between races working hard on my fitness and I am hoping to deliver a strong result at Spa," said Armaan.

It will be a busy week for Armaan with back-to-back races scheduled for Spa and Nurburgring, Germany (July 2-3).
