Dennis And King Secure Further Championship Points

Jake Dennis and Jordan King have picked up more valuable FIA Formula Three European Championship points following the completion of the third race of the weekend in Germany. The two British racers were quick off the line and enjoyed a relatively uneventful race in which Dennis crossed the line in a very strong sixth and King seventh. Sadly for team mate Ed Jones his race was ruined when he was handed a drive through penalty which saw him lose his top ten position and eventually finish the race in 15th.

Jordan King once again was fast to react to the lights and was soon latching on to the backs of the gearboxes ahead of him. By the end of the first lap he was already up to 12th position and would make further progress in the coming minutes.

Also looking strong and on the pace was Dennis who had moved his way up the grid before various incidents brought the safety car out on track. While the cars were slowing behind the Safety car, the marshals used the opportunity to fix the Astroturf on the edge of turn one which had been pulled up during the first lap.

Jones however had been an early casualty in the opening laps which had seen him lose one place off the line however he made sure to stay within reach of those ahead as the safety car pulled into the pits. Sadly things were soon to change for the UAE racer who was reprimanded and handed a drive through penalty for exceeding track limits. Coming through the pits at a slow pace his race was ruined as he fell down the grid to 16th. Attempting to make ground on the field Jones would eventually cross the line in 15th overall.

Jones said of his race, ‘It’s very frustrating to have ended such a good weekend like that, we were on older tyres than most of those around us so were already at a slight disadvantage. Because of this I regrettably and accidentally went off the track a couple of times as the tyres just weren’t at their best – and as a result I was handed a drive through which ruined my race. It’s made even more tough because of how good we were in the previous two races but I know we’ll come back fighting for Pau.’

King and Dennis would continue to make progress over the rest of the racing action and solidify a strong points finish for themselves. As the chequered flag fell, Dennis took it in sixth while King, who had been pushing his team mate hard and fairly in the closing laps, finished close behind in seventh.

Improving in every race this weekend and scoring strong points Dennis said, ‘That was definitely a pretty solid weekend for me with three points finishes which already is much better than Silverstone. I think I was certainly much faster in the third race as opposed to the rest and every time I go out there I’m gaining more experience. I’m overall very pleased with our results this weekend.’

King, who had another storming race to the points added, ‘I was very happy yesterday morning, then disappointed after qualifying. Today I think we got the most out of our starting position; when you start that far down you are constantly trying to stay out of trouble and make the clever moves which worked well for me in today’s races. I made the most out of the opportunities I had on track which is the main thing.’

It will now be a short turn around for the Carlin drivers as they leave Germany and prepare for the third round of the season which will take place next weekend at the street circuit Pau. With its close and unforgiving barriers the circuit will be the next challenge for the team to undertake.
