A Weekend Of Celebrations For Tom Blomqvist

Tom Blomqvist claimed victory and third place at the Grand Prix de Pau in France.

The Jagonya Ayam with Carlin driver qualified fourth for the second race. However, due to severe weather conditions and a wet track, the race was started behind the safety car. After five laps, the green flag was waved and Blomqvist began testing the new track conditions. The safety car was brought out seven laps later and as a result he moved up into a podium position and then made another spot up when Felix Rosenqvist and Esteban Ocon made contact. At the restart, Blomqvist immediately put the pressure on Ocon and soon after overtook him for the lead. This is now the 20-year-old’s second victory of the season and hesits second in the FIA Formula 3 European Championship standings.

“I am really happy to have won this race,” said Blomqvist. “I wasn’t really expecting to come away with victory but obviously it feels really great to have got it! Of course we struggled in the conditions, like everyone did, but others made mistakes and we didn’t so we were able to make the most of our race. It’s nice to come out fighting now that the penalties have been removed and to prove what we can do. It’s also very good for the championship and I’m happy for the team.”

In the final race held later in the afternoon yesterday, Blomqvist then earned a brilliant podium position. He started fourth on the grid and slotted into third right away, where he maintained that potion until the finish.

Commenting on the weekend, Blomqvist said, “It was again another solid race for us, we took the win this morning and then third in the Grand Prix. We can be happy with that – especially after the disappointment of Hockenheim the last time out. I managed to pass Max [Verstappen] here as well which was pretty good; I was able to keep the gap to Dennis behind and try and close to those ahead. The pace was good and from here on in, it’s game on.’”

Hector Hurst, who also is managed by MB Partners and drives for Team West-Tec scored his first-ever Championship point in the second race yesterday.

The next round of the FIA Formula 3 European Championship for Blomqvist and Hurst is the Hungaroring, 30th May to 1st June.
