Points In Pau Grand Prix For F3 Rookie Dennis

Jake Dennis has ended a fantastic FIA Formula Three European Championship weekend with further points in the prestigious Pau Grand Prix. The Racing Steps Foundation rookie added to his earlier podium and claimed more points this afternoon in the 73rd edition of the Grand Prix. Team mate Jordan King had a relatively uneventful race to finish in ninth while Ed Jones was forced to take avoiding action mid-race and as a result fell down the field to finish in 17th position overall. Dennis rounds off what has been another strong weekend for the Carlin team after the conclusion of the third event of the 2014 season.

Unlike this morning sunshine greeted the drivers as they lined up on the grid to start the 73rd edition of the Grand Prix de Pau. Off the line Dennis had another flawless start and as he turned into the first corner he had maintained his fifth place starting position and was beginning to latch on to the gearbox of Tom Blomqvist in the sister Jagonya Ayam with Carlin car.

Dennis, King and Jones all found themselves elevated up through the field when Max Verstappen once again collided with the close barriers in the opening laps and took himself out of his provisional podium spot. This incident moved Dennis into fourth, and looking for his second podium of the weekend while King was ninth and Jones 13th.

Over the next few laps the order remained mainly unchanged as the dry weather saw few driver errors or overtaking manoeuvres. Dennis kept Blomqvist in his sights while Jones had gained a position due to the retirement of Sean Gelael with suspected suspension damage.

As the race made its way past the mid-point, a combination of retirements and on track accidents had moved Jones further up to 11th as the battle continued to rage up and down the field. After a safety car restart, Ocon and Rosenqvist were nose to tail fighting which backed the pack up further allowing Dennis in turn to close the gap to Blomqvist however the Carlin man was unable to take the advantage and settled back into fourth.

Jones was an unfortunate casualty at the restart and lost positions after he had to take avoiding action which left him in a bad position on track and as a result saw him fall down the grid to 17th. Despite trying to gain positions his race was effectively ruined and he would remain in this position as the flag fell marking the end of racing action.

With very little happening up and down the grid in the final few laps Dennis ensured that he held the position well and continued to push until the very last lap. Topping off a fantastic weekend the rookie driver once again claimed a strong haul of points. King meanwhile had a less eventful race with very little happening around him – the British driver crossed the line in ninth, a position he had held for the majority of the race.

Dennis said of his weekend at Pau, ‘I’m so pleased to come away from the weekend with so many strong points and results. We did really well in the races and made a lot of progress over the course of the weekend. Our performance has been strong here and the pace very good. We’ve got some very decent points on the board which gives us a strong place to move on from ahead of the next round in Hungary.’
