Cao won the fifth race of the calendar for Changan Ford with a two-second lead to become the youngest race winner in the championship's history. His comments after the race indicate how quickly his on-track education is coming along.

"When I moved up to the lead (in the second lap) I was forced into a close fight with the other drivers and I learned a lot from them," he said.

Changan's project director Paul Hui said he took flak at the beginning for the season for putting three young drivers in the hot seat. But the gamble paid off.

"I am happy that we proved to everyone that our plan is working and our young drivers will become the leaders of the next generation racing drivers in China," he said.
