Mixed Fortunes As Dennis Takes More Points At Norisring

It was a race of mixed fortunes for Carlin drivers Jake Dennis and Jordan King this morning, in the first FIA Formula 3 European Championship race of the weekend at the Norisring. Both drivers started within the top ten, but while Dennis enjoyed a strong race to take fifth place, King was unable to finish after losing his front wing in the final stages of the race.

A strong first half of the race saw both Carlin drivers make good progress, with Dennis in the fight for fifth. The Racing Steps man was putting Latifi under pressure, but a small mistake saw him drop down the order and allowed team mate King up to sixth. After initially dropping to eighth, Dennis recovered one lap to seventh place.

After a third safety car period both King and Dennis were in a strong position as it looked as though the tyres of the cars ahead were dropping off. King’s progress was halted though after he made a move on Latifi and lost his front wing in the process.

With King’s front wing stranded on track, the Brit tried to continue but his car was too badly damaged to finish. A disappointed King was therefore forced to pull into the pits and retire.

Dennis meanwhile was finishing his race on a high after a strong fight with Felix Rosenqvist. The F3 rookie passed the F3 veteran and took the flag in a competitive fifth place.

Speaking about his race, Dennis said, “It wasn’t a bad race; the aim was to get top five and I completed that mission. I had a pretty awful start and dropped back to eighth but then got two people back going into turn one. Then I managed to get up to fifth but Latifi got me back and I dropped back to eighth and then had to work my way back. The pace wasn’t too bad, but it was a hard race. Overall I’m pretty happy.”

Dennis and King will both be back on track for second qualifying later today at 16.10 local time.
