Macau driver Leong Hon Chio today won the Formula 4 Macau Grand Prix race which was held instead of the Formula 3 race that could not be held because of COVID-19 travel restrictions. 

Leong is only the third local driver to win the Macau Grand Prix, after Eduardo de Carvalho in 1954 and Andre Couto in 2000. 

Fellow Macau racer Andy Chang Wing Chung finished in second place, while mainland Chinese driver Li Sicheng came in third. The three drivers ended the 12-lap race in the same position that they had started it. 

The first three laps were lead by the safety car after a minor incident. Unlike other races today, the F4 race wasn't riddled by accidents. 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Macau's signature Formula 3 and Motorcycle Grand Prix races could not be held this time. The three-day event ended this afternoon. 

FIA Formula 4 is an open-wheel racing car category.Unlike Formula 3, there is no global championship, but rather individual countries or regions can host their own championships in compliance with a universal set of rules and specifications.
