Igor Walilko seventh on Sunday in Estoril

Igor Walilko finished the second race of the opening round of the Euroformula Open series in seventh place, leaving him sixth overall after a solid weekend in Portugal.

The 18-year-old from Zielona Gora in Poland quickly moved from eighth to seventh after the start of race two, putting pressure on Tatiana Calderon right until the flag and eventually finishing right behind the female racer.

A sixth and a seventh in his Fortec Motorsports debut leaves the young Pole in sixth overall after round one of eight, with 14 points to his name. Round two will take place at Spa-Francorchamps between the 20th and 22th of May. The Belgian track saw Walilko scoring his first podium in his rookie season in Euroformula Open last year.
