Alex Palou grabs Rookies' title at Suzuka

The Spaniard completed the final round of the 2019 Super Formula season this Sunday at Suzuka. Palou clinched the Rookies’ title and ranked 3rd overall in the standings.

Alex Palou, who is represented by Monaco Increase Management, has achieved another success in his racing career by securing the Rookies’ title in the 2019 Super Formula season.

The famous Suzuka circuit hosted the season finale of the Japanese-based racing series with the Spaniard, driving a Nakajima-entered Dallara-Honda, in title contention with Nick Cassidy and Naoki Yamamoto. Despite Palou secured the pole position for the race, an unscheduled second pit stop due to severe tire wear dashed his chances to beat Cassidy and Yamamoto.

Besides the Rookies’ title, Palou ranked third in the drivers’ standings, a massive achievement for a newcomer in the series.
