Further Podium For King But Heartbreak For Dennis

Jordan King has taken his second podium of the weekend as Carlin wrap up a weekend of FIA Formula Three European Championship points at the Norisring, Germany. Team mate Jake Dennis however suffered heartbreak as he failed to make it past the first corner making contact in unlucky circumstances. However the result sees King top off a strong weekend in Germany before the team move to new territory for the next round in Moscow, Russia.

Following the formation lap around the Norisring it looked certain that the race would get underway on time however Dennis Van de Laar looked to have an issue and sensibly pulled his car to the side – this meant that the entire field had to complete one more lap before the race could start.

As the lights went out a few minutes later it seemed that both King and Dennis had enjoyed clean starts however on the run down to the hairpin Dennis caught some water, locked up and was a passenger as he straight-lined the corner – unfortunately colliding with Tom Blomqvist in the process. This sadly left him stranded on track and meant that the safety car was released while his car was removed from the circuit.

However King, who had somehow avoided the melee, moved his Volkswagen powered Dallara up to a provisional podium position in third overall. As the safety car came back in to the pits and the racing resumed it was a much more subdued affair in comparison to the rest of the races over the course of the weekend.

On his own, King remained in third position and began an attempt to chase Esteban Ocon ahead – however despite purple sectors and battling to set the fastest lap of the race, King was unable to catch Ocon before the end of the race and took an assured podium position for third.

The British racer said of his podium, ‘I’m obviously very pleased to have secured another podium this weekend. There was a lot going on in that first lap and I had picked up a few places around the outside of the first corner, then it was sad to see Jake [Dennis] in amongst the incident however I was able to get through unscathed and take third position. From then on it was a relatively uneventful race for me. Third position is good and it’s nice to have that alongside my earlier podium today, I’m now hoping for more of the same when we head to Moscow in a couple of weeks.’
