F2 – Race Two Br...

The race started behind the safety car for the last time. It was a clean start, and Roberto kept his 11th position. Ralph lost one place and dropped back from 9th to 10th after the first lap.

Ralph was 1,5 sec behind Norris in Lap 6, and Roberto stayed very close behind his teammate. The positions remained the same during the race except until the end. Both drivers profited from a collision in front of them, and so they both gained one place.

Final result:
P9 Ralph Boschung
P10 Roberto Merhi

A bad start for Dorian he dropped back from 4th place to 10th. Niko Kari did it much better he started from 11th position and moved up to 8th position. Devlin DeFrancesco fell back to 16th.

Devlin moved up one place from 16th to 15th during lap four while Dorian lost one place a few laps later.

Niko was still running strong on the 8th position till Hughes tried to overtake him from the outside in T6. Hughes didn’t had much space left anymore in the exit of the corner resulting in a collision with Kari. Kari lost the control of his car and went off the track.

The rear suspension of Niko Kari broke not much later in the race because Falchero drove into the rear of Niko Kari during the VSC with three laps to go. That resulted in a DNF for Kari.

Final result:
P9 Dorian Boccolacci
P14 Devlin DeFrancesco
DNF Niko Kari

The race started behind the safety car, and Roberto Merhi managed to stay at the same position except for Ralph he dropped three places to 17th position.

One of the early drivers that did their pitstop was Merhi. Boschung went for the longer strategy with four other drivers of the field. The lap times of Roberto Merhi were one of the fastest after his pitstop.

Not much happened during the middle of the race, but the stewards were busy giving time penalties for over speeding in the pitlane. The penalties helped Boschung and Merhi in their favour.

Boschung went into the pitlane with seven laps to go to do his pitstop, and he came back on track on 13th position. He overtook his teammate during the last laps with his fresher new set of tyres, and he finally finished the race 9th (included are the time penalties from other drivers).

P9 Ralph Boschung
P11 Roberto Merhi

The lights went off and not much longer after that VSC went on.
Dorian moved up two places to 5th position right after the start. Niko Kari starting from 19th moved up five places and Devlin Defrancesco one place.

Just after VSC went off Kari managed to overtake another two cars, before another VSC came in the game during lap 5. This VSC switched over to a Safety car because car number nine was standing still in the middle of the straight.

Not much happened for quite a long time till the last five laps. Dorian lost earlier in the race his 5th position, but he got it back with four laps to go. The gap to 4th positions was at that moment 4 sec. Niko Kari was in less than 1 sec behind P9 but finished finally 11th.

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!

F2 – British GP ...

The Formula 2 team had like our GP3 team their qualifying today.
Practice showed some good potential this morning. Ralph was fourth quickest and Roberto eighth, so the day started positively.

The red flag went out when Ralph Boschung and Roberto Merhi finished their first push lap during the qualifying. Both drivers went out again on the same set of tyres when the track showed the green flags again. Finally, Ralph Boschung was 6th fastest and Roberto 14th after the first run.

Ralph and Roberto went out on their second set of new tyres during the last ten minutes. It is one of the most critical moments because most drivers improve a lot during their second run. Ralph and Roberto improved as well, but they couldn’t add all their fast sectors together in one fast lap. Too bad! Because there were some promising moments today, but the final result is what counts.

Final results:
P13 Roberto Merhi
P14 Ralph Boschung

GP3 – Qualifying...

The British GP is the fourth round of the GP3 season. A strong practice session (2nd,3rd and 14th) gave us good hope for the qualifying, but it wasn’t easy in the end.

Dorian Boccolacci was 9th fastest with 0,75 sec of pole position, Niko Kari 13th and Devlin DeFrancesco was 19th with still 18 min to go. All drivers went after their run straight back into the pitlane to pick up the second set of new tyres and to do some minor setup changes. The gap from pole position and the 16th position was one second at that moment.

All driver rejoint the track to give it another try. Dorian moved up to 5th while Niko and Devlin didn’t show much improvement.

Final results:
P7 Dorian Boccolacci
P18 Devlin DeFrancesco
P19 Niko Kari

Pitlane for race one opens tomorrow at 10:10 (CET)
