MEETING OF THE F3 EUROSERIES CHAMPIONSHIP
weekend at Spa-Francorchamps, the F3 Euroseries championship
saw yet another double win from the ASM team during race two
on Sunday, and it was almost the same result on Saturday.
Hamilton and Adrian Sutil actually crossed the finish line
in first and second position respectively at the end of both
events and while this should have seen two double finishes
for the weekend, unfortunately Hamilton was disqualified along
with a number of other drivers, as their diffusers did not
conform to the required size. Therefore, Sutil won his maiden
victory on Saturday and secured pole position for the next
day. Meanwhile, Lewis Hamilton took the lead in style and
did not let go, either on or off track
ASM team therefore dominated the Belgian weekend with each
driver getting one pole and one win! Hamilton consolidated
his position as championship leader with 48 points while Adrian
Sutil caught up with James Rossiter, both men now in equal
second position with 35 points. ASM is also in the lead at
the constructors championship with 80 points.
again we had a great weekend in Spa and the opening round
in Hockenheim (DTM) was fabulous. The team worked very hard,
we got some good points with two second places and a win.
I was obviously quite disappointed to be disqualified on Saturday,
it was a difficult race as the track was very wet and I was
extremely happy to come out on top. I therefore came back
on Sunday more focussed than ever. I knew I had to put in
a good performance for the team, and also to show the rest
of the field that I might have be out the day before but not
forever! This is my last season in F3 and I desperately want
to win the championship. Along with the team we work very
hard, and I know we can win this.
cant wait to get to Monaco. In Spa it was very cold,
I caught a bit of flu there and I am now hoping that antibiotics
will make sure I am fit for the race in the Riviera. Monaco
is very special, racing before F1 is incredible, and also
three of my bosses will be there, so I better do well! I am
confident, and hope we can be as dominating as we have been
in the recent races.
we had a very good weekend. I got my first win on Saturday,
I obviously would have liked to cross the line first but at
the end of the day I was second and Lewis getting disqualified
meant another two points in the championship run for me. On
Sunday I had a very good practice, started from pole position,
which was great. Then Lewis got in the lead and it was hard
for me to over take him. He was always faster than I was on
the straight as I had less downforce, but second place was
still very good, especially as the gap was never greater than
2 seconds between him and I. I am now second in the championship,
closing in on Lewis and I am very happy. The team dominated
in Spa just like in Pau and I hope it keeps going on like
this. We work very hard and the reward is obviously very positive.
I am looking forward to racing in Monaco, I only know the
track from computer games, but I am sure it will be very interesting
to race in Monte-Carlo.
two drivers, Lewis Hamilton and Adrian Sutil, had a perfect
weekend! Two poles and two 1-2 finishes, all acquired under
different track conditions - on a wet track on Saturday and
a dry one on Sunday. This fills the team and its partners
with happiness. Lewis disqualification in race 1 was
the only mistake of the weekend. We made an error which we
assume responsibility for. Even if the defective part came
directly from the Dallara factories, we should have controlled
its conformity. Lewis and Adrian are first and second in the
drivers standings and the ASM team leads the team championship.
The beginning of the season is therefore very positive, especially
as our rivals share the points.
