Frederik Vesti is the 2019 Champion of the Formula Regional European Championship, and with the title he also wins the maximum number of points awarded in this band of championships for FIA Superlicense, a full 25.

The Danish driver wins the championship with 12 wins and 17 total podiums. Behind him the battle for second place in the final standings is still open, with team-mate Enzo Fittipaldi, sixth in race 3, who is followed by David Schumacher (US Racing), winner in the last race at Mugello, which is approaching with 265 points against the 306 of the Brazilian, and with still 75 points to be assigned in the last round of Monza.

Schumacher makes a good start, but still Vesti does better and immediately manages to attack him. The German resists and, behind, his teammate and fellow countryman Lirim Zendelli manages to attack Vesti and overtake him. Behind them Jake Hughes (KIC Motorsport), Igor Fraga (DR Formula by RP Motorsport) and Enzo Fittipaldi.

Meanwhile, a great overtake by Sophia Floersch (Van Amersfoort Racing) on Olli Caldwell (Prema Powerteam). The German driver also tries to overtake her team-mate Dan Ticktum, but is unable to snatch the seventh position from him.

Schumacher wins, ahead of Zendeli and Hughes, who attacks and overtakes Vesti in the penultimate lap, perhaps more projected towards the title than the race.
