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!

Richard Verschoor finished 8th Yesterday, so he had to start on pole position for race 2. Niko started from 10th place and Devlin from 13th.

Verschoor lost two positions at the start and had to take the safety road in the second chicane, but he only dropped back to the 3rd position because of that. Niko had a great start but damaged his front wing, so he had to do a pitstop for a wing change. Devlin was 14th at that moment.

Safety car went out in lap 2, Because of a big crash before the fast chicane. Richard lost his 3rd position at the restart of the race and fell back to 4th position. Niko had to start over again after his pitstop but overtook one car at the restart of the race. Devlin stayed 14th at that moment.

Not an easy thing to start pole in your 4th GP3 race. 8th position for Richard in lap 10. Devlin went up one place to P13 just in front of Niko Kari.

Eventually, Kari overtook his teammate for 12th position and Verschoor unfortunately just dropped out of the top 10.

P11 Richard Verschoor
P12 Niko Kari
P13 Devlin DeFrancesco

The day started with a qualifying session. Christian Lundgaard managed to qualify on pole position with 0,3 sec. It was his first pole position of this season. Alex Peroni and new rookie Freek Schothorst qualified outside of the top 10.

P1 Christian Lundgaard
P11 Alex Peroni
P18 Freek Schothorst

A lot of focus was needed after the start of the race. It looked for a moment that Christian Lundgaard was going to fall back to 3rd position, but he managed to keep the 2nd place. Alex Peroni and Freek Schothorst both dropped back 2 positions after the start.

The safety car came out on track after Thomas Neubauer crashed 5 min into the race. In less than 5 min the track got clear and the race restarted. Unfortunately, the gap between Lundgaard and the leader was just too big to give it a try to take back the lead.

The Hungaroring is not an easy track to overtake and that was quite clear during the rest of the race. Arthur Rougier stopped next to the track and that was the only position gain for Alex Peroni and Freek Schothorst during the second half of the race.

Finally, Christian Lundgaard crossed the finish line 2nd and took in his pocket some useful points for the remaining battle for the championship.

P2 Christian Lundgaard
P13 Alex Peroni
P17 Freek Schothorst
