Goulian: We Need To Be More Aggressive

After his monstrous comeback season last year, Michael Goulian has his eyes on the prize for the final race of the 2019 season. 

He’s had a mixed season so far, finishing third at the season opener in Abu Dhabi. He went on to take 10th in Kazan and 7th in Lake Balaton, leaving him currently joint fourth in the standings. With 28 points up for grabs at the last race, Goulian is aiming for the win and that final step on the overall podium.

Can Hall Win It All?

With his victory at Lake Balaton, only September’s season finale left to race, Matt Hall has put himself squarely in contention for the title. After earning four World Championship podiums without attaining the top step, Hall has just one more chance to claim the trophy. And he’s aiming to make the most of it.

Having joined the World Championship in 2009, Hall is in his eighth season, and his record of 24 race podiums – including seven wins – makes him the most successful Red Bull Air Race pilot never to have won a season title.

But he has come very, very close.

Ice-cool Hall's Perfect Performance

The Australian pilot executed his gameplan perfectly under intense pressure and saving his best run for the Final 4, knowing that nothing but a win was the result he needed to keep his World Championship title hopes alive.

Martin Sonka, who is now leading the championship, had a nightmare final run. The Czech pilot had been sitting at the top of the standings since Qualifying, but his chance of a win was dashed when he clipped a pylon at Gate 4, an error which pushed him down to fourth.
