Four Master Class pilots of the Red Bull Air Race have a chance to claim the World Championship title tomorrow in Indianapolis. All four have a right to think they could win. Here's how their season has panned out so far...
Current position: 1st
Current points: 63
Sonka started his season in perfect form, taking the season opener in Abu Dhabi. He's had up and downs since then with several podiums and then was back to his best in Porto when he claimed his second win. He's currently in the top spot, but is keeping cool, saying: "We're trying not to think about the World Championship we're just concentrating on the race, because there are still a lot of points on the table and anything can happen."
Current position: 2nd
Current points: 59
Muroya is the only pilot so far to take three race wins, but he had issues that knocked him down the leader board. He was unable to score a point in Kazan and in Porto missed out on the Final 4. But he was back to his best in Lausitz taking the win and hitting form just at the right time. "There's no pressure, we've made the best effort we can, and we're just going to race," he said.
Current Position: 3rd
Current points: 56
McLeod is the only pilot in the top four not to have claimed a race win yet this season, but his string of second place finishes have seen him in his highest ever position in the standings. He knows he's going to have to work hard to take the title, but he sees that as an advantage. "There's no pressure on me, I'm coming from behind so it's about having a good race. It might be nice to have Martin or Yoshi in an early round and try to knock them out – that will be my best chance to win," the Canadian explained.
Current position: 4th
Current points: 52
Chambliss is the only pilot that has been in this position before. He's won the title twice in his Red Bull Air Race career. He's also claimed two wins in 2017, but knows he needs to leave it all out on the track if he's going to win the title for a third time. "I'm super motivated and I've got some things to figure out, but we want to win," he said.
