Martin Šonka has won the 2018 Red Bull Air Race World Championship following a nail-biting final race in Fort Worth, Texas. The pressure could not have been higher for the Czech pilot, who was last to fly and had to win the race to win the overall Championship. "This race was incredible. It couldn't end up better than this," he said. "It was a beautiful race with everything in it." Šonka was one of the favourites to win, but as he entered the final leg of the race the points spread meant any one of three pilots could win and take the World Championship title.
