Two Cars In The Top Five For Carlin's GP3 Team

Carlin’s Alex Lynn and Emil Bernstorff have come home to take a double points finish in this afternoon’s GP3 Series Race One at the Hungaroring. Lynn, recovered from a tough start to finish the race in fourth position overall while Bernstorff held his sixth place starting position for almost the entirety of the race until penultimate lap drama saw him snatch fifth as his own. Luis Sa Silva saw a race with very few changes of positions around him; the Angolan racer came home in 17th overall.

Starting on the front row of the grid, Lynn was unlucky to not get the perfect start and fell to fourth position as the field streamed into the first corner. Bernstorff was looking racy and did attempt a move up the inside in to turn one however despite managing to do so he lost it again in in the process keeping him in sixth. Sa Silva meanwhile was running 16th overall after losing a position initially in what was a tight first corner for the whole grid.

After the initial first lap position changes the race was a relatively processional affair – Bernstorff began to chase Patrick Neiderhauser and Lynn was pushing Nick Yelloly for third however neither Carlin men were able to make any impact on the order. Sa Silva was also finding this to be the case and was in 17th position as the race settled in to a rhythm.

The only real drama of the race took place on the penultimate lap with Robert Visoiu pushing race leader Richie Stanaway hard with the former of the pair running wide and leaving the door open for those behind. While Lynn was a little too far back to replicate the move Yelloly made for position, Neiderhauser tried an opportunistic move and Bernstorff made sure to take advantage. This overtake moved the Carlin man up behind his team mate in positions they would hold until the flag fell.

At its conclusion Lynn was fourth, Bernstorff fifth and Sa Silva 17th ensuring a double points finish for the team in the opening race of the weekend.

Lynn said, ‘You’re always disappointed if you lose a position instead of gaining them off the line so that wasn’t ideal however the car felt good throughout the race today and we’ll work hard tomorrow, get a better start and pick up some more big points. It’s always hard when you’re following a car because it’s tight and twisty here so you can’t stay close but we are still out ahead in the championship which is the main thing.’

Bernstorff added, ‘After the start there wasn’t much anyone could do here. I made a position on early on but someone got by me too so we stayed in sixth for most of the race and I began saving my tyres for the end. Then I started catching Neiderhauser ahead lap by lap but saw there was some sort of incident ahead – that just made my job a little easier and I could make the pass on him sooner than anticipated so I ended up in fifth which I’m happy with.’
