Job Returns to Top of Porsche TAG Heuer Esports Supercup Podium at Donington

Red Bull Racing Esports’ Sebastian Job put the disappointment of a difficult round at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya behind him, scoring wins in both the sprint and feature race of Saturday’s Porsche TAG Heuer Esports Supercup event at Donington. Job led all 32 laps of Saturday’s affair, seizing the opportunity from the front row of the sprint race and extending a sizable lead over defending series champion Josh Rogers in the feature.

After posting the seventh-fastest lap in qualifying, Job found himself on the outside of the front row for the sprint race alongside Alejandro Sanchez after the eight-car invert. He never let Sanchez lead a lap, though, seizing the top spot and never yielding the position. Max Benecke would climb from sixth on the grid to third, getting around Ricardo Castro Ledo on Lap 11, while Rogers would complete the top five.

In the feature, Job once again jumped out to the top spot, while Benecke found himself shuffled back to ninth in the first-lap kerfuffle. Rogers had already climbed to a podium spot by the end of the first lap, and got around Sanchez on Lap 8 in hopes of tracking down Job. But as the race wore on, the two drivers kept turning nearly identical laps, rendering the Australian unable to close the gap and leaving him winless still after three races to start his title defense—although he now holds the championship lead once again.

In the Porsche Esports Sprint Challenge super session, featuring the top 30 drivers from the previous week of racing, Cooper Webster led all 13 laps to hold off Thomas Gibson for his first victory of the season, reversing their finishing order from the previous event in Barcelona. Mikkel Gade held off Antti Ahola for the podium, while Simone Maria Marceno, winner of the season opener at Zandvoort, fell out of the top five after a spin and came home 15th.
