Philippe Chiappe wins inaugural F1 powerboats world title

Richard Carr reports today on Frenchman’s Philippe Chiappe early Christmas present after he won the UIM F1 World Powerboat Championship last month.

A dream come true

Frenchman Chiappe described winning the UIM F1 World Powerboat Championship for the first time as a dream-come-true, having led from start to finish at the Sharjah Grand Prix at the Khalid Lagoon in the final race of the season.

In the presence of a big crowed, Chiappe was presented with his crown by Shaikh Sultan Bin Ahmad Al Qasimi, Chairman of Sharjah Commerce and Tourism Development Authority. Saeed Hareb, General Secretary of Dubai Sports Council, and Raffaele Chiulli, President of UIM, the world governing body for watersports were also in attendance.

Chiappe secures title with victory

The Frenchmen led the championship going into the fifth and final round of the series, ahead of defending champion Alex Carella by a narrow three-point margin.

Despite it proving to be his first title win of his career, Chiappe remained calm and collected throughout and was in complete control of the situation.

He claimed pole position before driving a measure race to keep Carella is second in a race that saw only nine of the 15 boats finish.

First Frenchman to win an F1 Powerboat title

Chiappe’s win meant he became the first world champion from France in the 31-year history of F1 powerboat racing.

“This is so much of a dream,” the 51-year-old told Gulf News. “For the past four years we have been doing everything right. We have just tried to get better as a team each year.

“Once it was a problem with the engine, once it was the boat, once it was an error from me, but we were always there among the top. But this year we got everything right and this makes us so proud to have everything come together.

“Everything worked in our favour and I have achieved a huge goal in my career as a driver.
