Zane Maloney taking same approach into Brands Hatch title decider

Zane Maloney says he will approach this weekend’s F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost title-decider at Brands Hatch like any other event.

The Carlin racer arrives at the 2.4-mile Kent circuit tied level on points atop the standings with Double R Racing’s Sebastian Alvarez.

He has eight victories and a further five podiums to his record in his first season of junior single-seater competition, including a superb run of seven wins in eight races across Thruxton, Croft and Oulton Park in the middle of the season.

However, Maloney has only out-scored his chief title rival Alvarez in a race on one occasion since the summer break.

Their battle reached fever pitch last time out at Silverstone, the pivotal moment a clash on the apex of Luffield in the ITV4-televised finale whilst disputing second on the road, bringing Double R’s Louis Foster and JHR’s Josh Skelton back into the mix.

Ahead of the triple-header, Maloney insists his approach hasn’t changed and will treat the clash for the crown as he would any other event.

“I feel really good going into the last round! I’m very confident that we can get the job done,” affirmed Maloney.

“Everyone’s done an amazing job so far and it would be great to finish my first year in single-seaters with a bang.”

The Bajan also underlined his record at Brands Hatch, believing the car will be quick whatever the weather.

“Brands Hatch is a great track for me and I’ve been quick there in testing, so it’s just about having the same approach as usual. I think we can have a great weekend no matter the conditions,” added Maloney.

The British F4 title will be decided at Brands Hatch this weekend [12-13 October], live on ITV4.
