Second Podium For Jones In Germany

Ed Jones has continued his form in Germany adding another podium result to his FIA Formula Three European Championship weekend. The Carlin driver had lined up on the grid in fourth position and moved in to an assured third at the start; holding his nerve throughout, despite coming under pressure after a safety car restart, the 19 year old drove well to clinch his second podium of the weekend. Jordan King also enjoyed a storming drive into the points from his 19th place starting position while team mate and F3 rookie Jake Dennis ended the race just behind him in 10th. Once again the result sees all three Volkswagen powered Dallara Carlin cars picking up points.

Before the race had even started everyone on the grid effectively gained a place as pole sitter Max Verstappen pulled off with an issue before even getting to his grid slot. This moved Jones up to third – a position he would hold as the race got underway.

Further back King had made sure to get another strong start and was already up to 12th by the end of the first lap. The British racer was certain to gain more places as the race developed however he soon began to look after his tyres over the next few laps.

Meanwhile Dennis was into eighth position however as the race progressed he soon found that Tom Blomqvist in the sister Carlin was on his tail. Unable to hold him off, Blomqvist made his way through leaving the Racing Steps Foundation driver in ninth. Dennis then found himself defending hard and well from team mate King who was beginning to make his move; the two fought fairly however King took the position from his team mate.

The race was to be neutralised in the final few laps as the safety car was deployed for a turn one off-track incident. As the cars bunched up on track it looked as though Jones had it all to do again. However the UAE driver held his nerve at the restart and maintained the position to take his second podium of the weekend for third.

Jones said of his race, ‘At the moment this weekend can’t really go any better! We’ve made a lot of progress and now have had it confirmed that yesterday wasn’t a one off. We still have some work to do with our race pace but we know where to work on for that. We’re not far from the win and that is definitely the next aim for us this season. Now, we focus on working hard for the final race this weekend hoping for more of the same.’

Meanwhile King’s hard fought race came to an end with him crossing the line in a solid ninth while Dennis followed him home in tenth; once again ensuring that all three of the Carlin cars took valuable points away from the race.

The third and final race of the weekend will start at 15.25 local time this afternoon.
