Thanks to his win in France, the Indian is now placed fourth overall in the drivers' championship with 52 points. The Ferrari Challenge Europe Championship 2015 started in April 2015 at Monza, Italy where Singhania secured a double podium finish followed by another podium finish at Budapest, Hungary last month.
Commenting on his win, Singhania said: "It is yet another proud moment for me to secure a podium finish in Race 1 at the fourth round of the Ferrari Challenge in Le Castellet. It has been a great start for me to this prestigious Ferrari event as I look forward to slowly move up the overall standings and have set my sights on the World Finals 2015 in December."
The entire season comprises of 15 races — two races a weekend spread over six weekends, mainly at Monza (Italy), Imola (Italy), Mugello (Italy), Le Castellet (France), Valencia (Spain) and Budapest (Hungary). This culminates into the World Finals, consisting of three races in December 2015, where one race is together with the other two regions of Asia and North America.
