Points For King And Jones As Dennis Retires

It was a mixed race for the three Carlin FIA Formula 3 European Championship drivers today, as they competed in the second race of the weekend at the Nurburgring in Germany. Jordan King took solid points for sixth place, while Ed Jones continued his recovery from a back injury to take eighth place. There was heartache for Jake Dennis though, who lost a points finish after retiring with an electrical problem.

With yesterday’s qualifying session postponed due to damaged guardrail, it was an early start for the F3 drivers who had to squeeze in qualifying ahead of race two and three early this morning. After a solid qualifying session, King lined up eighth, Jones ninth and Dennis tenth.

King was a fast mover off the line, making up one place to seventh on lap one, while Jones and Dennis held position. F3 rookie Dennis lost two places a couple of laps later, dropping to 12th by lap six, but the Racing Steps driver stayed close to the fight for tenth, with Andrea Calderon and Nicholas Latifi.

Misfortune was to his Dennis on lap 15 though, when he was forced into the pits and retirement following a suspected electrical problem.

The order changed suddenly on lap 17 after the dramatic retirement of race leader Max Verstappen, which put King up to sixth and Jones eighth. With only a few laps remaining around the notoriously difficult to overtake circuit, the Carlin duo took the flag in sixth and eighth.

Speaking about his race, King said, “My start was good and I almost got Lucas [Auer] but he came across very quickly and I ended up being pushed to the outside of turn one which isn’t really a place you want to be here but I had to give it a go. Then I got [Felix] Rosenqvist into the chicane on the first lap so I was up to seventh, and from there it was just a long race. The speed at the stat of the race wasn’t quite ideal but at the end the pace came back and I was able to close on the cars ahead.”

The Carlin drives will be back on track for the final race of the weekend at 15.25 local time.
