Straight after the Formula 2 race was the start of the GP3 race. The track was still a bit damp, but most of it was dry.

The start was average for Dorian with a little moment at the chicane where he went off. He dropped three places during his first lap back to the 11th position. Niko Kari did it much better he went from 19th position to the 15th position.

The field was packed closed to together with some battles going on. However, Nobody could use the DRS system because the organisation had some problems to activate it. So overtaking was much more difficult for all the drivers.

Niko Kari was going well and took over the 11th place but got hit by Pedro Piquet on his rear tyre what resulted in a puncture. Dorian Boccolacci got the 8th position in the meanwhile, and that was as well his final position.
That means that Dorian will start from pole position in race two on Sunday.

The track was wet, and it kept raining a little bit. The drivers had to do many formation laps behind the safety car, but the starting procedure was finally a standing start.

A massive first lap for Roberto Merhi he moved up from 19 to 11th. Ralph had bad luck he got a puncture and went off the track what caused a damaged front wing. He had to pit to change his front wing and tyre.

The first drivers gave it a go to change their tyres from wet to slicks on lap 14. Roberto Merhi went on slicks as well at lap 16. His teammate Ralph followed him after that.

VSC went on with four laps to go. Ralph still driving on 19th position but at that moment he was the 3rd fastest on the track. Roberto was 7th at that moment, and he just tried to make a move on 6th position before the VSC went on. Unfortunately, he couldn’t get that position and stayed 7th.

Not much longer Ghiotto took over the 7th position of Roberto In the second last lap, but Roberto dropped back another three places out of nowhere in the last lap. What looked like to be a point finish and a front row start position for the Sunday race turned over to an 11th position finish.

Ralph Boschung finished 19th because he did a double pitstop. Still, he managed to put the fastest lap of the race in the last lap.

Questions and Answers ...

A few weeks ago you were able to send questions to our Formula Renault drivers, and you were able to win a rear wing endplate.
We made the questions and answers during the Monaco GP weekend, and the drivers Christian Lundgaard, Alex Peroni and Max Defourny were able to sign the rear wing endplate that you could win.

Not all the questions were included in the video!
Here are some that were left out:

Max Defourny: Have you ever felt that you were faster than the car you were driving?

* It was a bit of an unclear question, but we all thought that it was all about experiencing the sensation that the car feels slow. So when you are used to a fast car, and you step back in a slow car than yes, it feels like you are faster than the car you are driving.

Alex Peroni: How do you prepare mentally for a race weekend and is there any difference after a crash or do you simply forget about it?

*Preparing start early in the week with my engineer and you start to study onboard and some simulator work, but not really “mental” stuff.
And you have to analyse a crash to see if you can learn anything from it, but if not then forget it and move forward.

Max Defourny: Do you think the Halo was a good idea?

* I rather don’t have it, because it changes the whole concept of formula cars, but it is part of the “evolution”, and we have to deal with it.

Christian Lundgaard: Do you have a dance move to impress women?

* No, I don’t dance! 🙂

Alex Peroni: After a crash are there any procedures you have to follow?

* If it was a hard crash injured or not then you have to do a medical check, and the things they check are really basic things. After contact with any car, you usually have to go to the stewards and the one that caused the problem normally gets a penalty.

Thank you for watching and see you next time!

Race two was delayed by more than an hour after a massive crash in another race category. Christian started 3rd, and he tried to copy precisely his move from race one, but this time he was on the outside instead of the inside on the straight after Eau Rouge what resulted in one position lose to 4th. Jarno Opmeer and Alex Peroni kept the same place because the safety car went out when half of the first lap was done. The reason was a big crash at the start of the race in turn one.

The safety car went in with 16 min to go. Christian restarted the race with a gap to the 3rd position what resulted in a direct pressure from the driver on 5th position. He lost for a moment his 4th position but managed to get it back straight after that.

Lundgaard started to struggle more during the last three laps because of a throttle sensor issue. He had to defend too much in the last and first corner, and that gave four drivers behind him an opportunity to slipstream through Eau Rouge. That opportunity cost him many positions.

Alex Peroni and Jarno Opmeer both went in a battle with each other for 14th position, but that didn’t go well after they hit each other in the second last lap. Both drivers didn’t finish the race.

P8 Christian Lundgaard
DNF Jarno Opmeer

Dorian Boccolacci and Niko Kari were one of the first and our only cars that went on track. Devlin DeFrancesco isn’t racing this weekend because of an illness.

The red flag went out during the first push lap. Niko Kari went wide at turn 4, returned to the track and clattered into Mazepin, and so by his own mistake, his qualifying was unfortunately over.

The session restarted with 25 minutes to go. Dorian was a half a tenth of the quickest in sector one and two, But he got traffic in sector three. His lap time was good enough for 5th position at that time.

Dorian went out on his second set, But without traffic during his push lap this time. His first push gave him the 5th place, But he only improved his first sector in his second push lap and not the last two sectors what finally resulted in an 8th start position.
