Antonio Felix da Costa hopes that the frontrunners in this year's Formula Renault 3.5 championship can have more battles like the one from the opening laps of race two at Monza last weekend.
The Red Bull-backed racer scrapped for the lead with McLaren juniors Kevin Magnussen and Stoffel Vandoorne in the early laps on Sunday, with da Costa eventually coming out on top after a battle where all three took turns in the lead.
The trio all agreed that the battle was something special, and da Costa hopes the frontrunners can maintain that standard of racing.
"It was a good race, and the first couple of laps were a nice fight," he said. "We were all pushing to the limit but it was fair, and this is good.
"I think we have to keep it like this for the next races, it was really nice. We all did a good job and to be honest any of the three of us could have won this race."
Magnussen also enjoyed the battle, even if he couldn't make his turn at the front last for very long.
"The first couple of laps were really exciting, and I enjoyed it a lot," he said. "It was an amazing fight. Unfortunately it didn't turn out my way, Antonio got the upper hand, but I enjoyed the race from start to finish."
