In a race that saw many cars frolic in the gravel traps, Alex Yoong, racing for Team Malaysia, finishes on the podium for the very first time.

A1 Team Canada fought their way from back of the grid to win the A1 Grand Prix of Nations, Sentul Circuit, Indonesia giving them their first win of the season.

The A1 GP in Indonesia was action-packed from start to finish, with enough collisions, overtaking and close-racing to keep the 32,000 spectators on their feet throughout the race.

Second place man Alex Yoong said: ‘I’m elated for the team. The car was very strong. We should have pitted earlier though, we could have been even closer. This is what the Series is all about, there was so much overtaking, the cars are strong and built to overtake. Jos Verstappen and I had a real cat and mouse fight as we made our way through the field. It is such a good result for the team and for our new sponsor Proton. Having Proton on board has made such a difference for the team, as we have been able to concentrate on the racing rather than getting to the next race.’

A1 Team Malaysia, currently lies 9th in the 25-nation ‘World Cup’ of motorsports with 49 points. Congrats Alex and A1 Team Malaysia!
