In the event, you went to bed early last night and haven’t seen the morning headlines here’s what you missed.

Sunday, 22 September, XIANGYANG (China): Team Abu Dhabi’s Shaun Torrente, Thani Al Qemzi and Erik Stark took another huge step towards the driver and team world titles in today’s UIM F1H2O Agile Grand Prix in Xiangyang, with Torrente leading home his teammates for a second successive all Team Abu Dhabi podium.

After delivering the perfect lap in yesterday’s BRM Qualifying to take the pole, Shaun Torrente produced a faultless performance today and was able to control the 39 lap race on the 2.23km 7-pin circuit on the Han River from start-to-finish to take his sixth career victory. “I think that was a complete team performance today,” said race winner Torrente. “Thani made an amazing start and to be running one two three so early on was great. I was able to maintain my pace without having to push too much and towards the end was able to back off.”
