Points Again For King And Dennis At Nuburgring

Carlin’s Jordan King once again completed a strong race at the Nurburgring today, taking points for fifth place in the final FIA Formula 3 European Championship race of the weekend. King adds a fifth place to his fourth and sixth place finishes in a competitive weekend. Team mate Jake Dennis was involved in some exciting racing action and crossed the line to come home ninth.

With Ed Jones sitting out this afternoon’s race due to a recurring back injury, it was just King and Dennis of the Carlin cars on the grid for the final race of the weekend. Following this morning’s early qualifying session, King started from seventh, just ahead of Dennis in eighth.

King enjoyed a good first lap, the British racer was fourth but his progress was halted by the safety car which was needed while marshals cleared away a multi-car accident, Dennis meanwhile was tenth.

At the restart, King had a fast looking Max Verstappen behind him. King kept him behind for several corners, until Verstappen made his way through to put King fifth while Dennis had made it up to ninth. On lap 15, Dennis made up another position in a tightly packed mid-field, passing Tatiana Calderon for eighth place. The Racing Steps driver then set off in pursuit of Roy Nissany.

In a four car battle, Dennis was involved in some of the best racing action of the race, but while fighting with the two cars in front for sixth place Dennis was passed again by Calderon and dropped to ninth on lap 19.

As the drivers crossed the finishing line, King had maintained fifth, while Dennis was ninth.

“Off the line my start wasn’t great and Jake got the inside and then I was forced round the outside which isn’t the ideal position,” said King, reflecting on his race. “From there I had a half decent race, a bit of a battle here and there and managed to close back up onto the cars ahead after finding a bit more speed half way through the race. Then in the last few laps I had a bit of a fight with Fuoco and I think he was a bit ambitious with some of his defending moves. It got close a couple of times. But it was a good race in terms of finding some pace. Some solid results this weekend; a fourth, fifth and sixth, but I’m not going to be happy until it’s a first, first and first.”
