Top Ten Line Up For Carlin In Austria

All three Carlin cars will start racing action from within the top ten tomorrow following a tightly contested second qualifying session around the Red Bull Ring, Austria. The eighth round of the FIA Formula Three European Championship has so far produced some tense action and qualifying failed to disappoint with Jordan King setting the eighth fastest time, Jake Dennis just behind in ninth and Ed Jones joining them inside the top ten. All three drivers will take part in two races tomorrow as the final day of the race weekend gets underway.

The second qualifying session of the weekend was just as tense as the first with the drivers once again leaving it a little while before taking to the track. After a few minutes all three Carlin men made their way out on to the Red Bull Ring as they looked to set their first flying laps in the 20 minute session.

As has been the competitive nature of the Championship for the whole of the 2014 season it was a tough battle for the top spots – and in the opening laps King was one of many drivers who would sit on top before being pushed back down the order as the track began to develop and the lap times dropped as a result.

By the mid-point Dennis was lying in ninth overall, King in 11th and Jones 15th however soon enough a red flag would bring proceedings to a halt as the car of Hector Hurst was stopped on track. This however was only a short break to the action and soon enough the cars were back on track with just eight minutes in which to set their next flying laps.

In the final few minutes that remained on the clock the rush for position was as manic as ever as fights for positions developed up and down the field. Following their final laps King had set the eighth fastest time, Dennis ninth and Jones tenth ensuring that all three Carlin drivers will line up within the top ten for the second race of the weekend.

King said, ‘It didn’t go 100% as we had hoped because the track seemed to have changed a little since this morning which I think everybody seemed to notice. However eighth isn’t a bad position to be starting from and although I wanted to be higher up I know we can push for positions from there so we should be on for two strong races tomorrow.’

Racing Steps Foundation driver Dennis added, ‘We will start the next two races from ninth and seventh respectively which obviously isn’t as far up the grid as we had intended and while we have a little bit of work to do tomorrow in the race I think a top five position is very achievable. It’s good to start from within the top ten though for both races and this track seems to be providing some great places to overtake so there should be some interesting battles.’

Jones said, ‘It hasn’t gone to plan for us today – the track definitely changed quite a lot in that session and as a result I struggled a little bit. You always try to adapt but sometimes there is very little you can do. However I don’t think tenth is a bad result all things considering. It’s my first weekend back here after injury so this is a positive, I’m looking forward to the two races tomorrow to see what we can do from there.’
