After a week long battle Gonzalo Costa Hoevel has come out on top at the 2015 Formula World Championships in the Azores. With 12 races in total and four taking place on the final day, it would have taken a fairly dramatic event for Gonzalo not to take the title. No stranger to the podium, Costa Hoevel has stepped up in previous years, however this is the first time he’s managed to crack the top spot and with such resounding success.
Meanwhile the real battle stood between the young danish rider Sebastian Kornum and seasoned veteran Janis Preiss from Latvia. It all came down to the last race on the last day. Early in the day Kornum had taken what he thought was a bullet in the 9th race but was later deemed to be over early and he had not realised his mistake until the finish where he was disqualified. Not phased by this result he took a bullet in the next race and kept the battle open. Heading into the 12th race it was all to play for between the two, in the end Preiss crossed the line ahead of Kornum to take second overall.
