Neel Jani joined Nico H?â??lkenberg as A1 Grand Prix’s most prolific winner by scored his ninth victory in the categoty in the feature race at Kyalami. But disaster struck the championship leaders. Ireland lost their lead in the title race as Adam Carroll crashed out on the first lap of the race.

Sebastien Buemi … Continue reading Buemi handed Sentul trophy by stewards
