Another victory by the German driver who in Barcelona since qualifying shows his strength
Two pole positions, two victories and a third place by David Schumacher (US Racing), who in Spain lifts his head with decision and conquers the Circuit de Barcelona Catalunya.
Race 3 sees Schumacher starting in pole and with a good start keeping first position, followed by Dan Ticktum (Van Amersfoort Racing) who from fourth position overtakes two competitors and is second, showing already in his first racing weekend in the Formula Regional European Championship certified by FIA his strength and the fast improvement both by him and the team: “I have practically been testing the entire weekend to reach race 3 in a much better condition of the car. I will be in the two final appointments of the season as I really enjoyed this racing and the direction we found with the team is the right one”, the London driver commented.
The final race has seen for in the first half the quartet Schumacher, Ticktum, Fittipaldi and Vesti, take the lead, with the latter once again having a bad start (seemingly his only weak point) and has to recover one position from teammate Olli Caldwell (Prema Powerteam).
In the first moments of the race unguilty Igor Fraga (DR Formula by RP Motorsport) is hit by Alexandre Bardinon (Van Amersfoort Racing) and loses many positions, also partially damaging his car.
At the front, Ticktum gets close to Schumacher and tries a couple of overtakes with no success, the German being very good and mature in defending and not making any mistake, showing a really new approach compared to last weekend in Imola, where he was somehow in the shadow.
In the meantime Vesti seems to be in difficulty with the tyres and makes a mistake letting Caldwell pass. After that, Nannini, with new tyres, with a great pace gets quickly closer to the Danish but unfortunately finally hits his car making him loose many positions. Vesti will end up 10th.
Schumacher wins in front of Ticktum and a very focused and constant Fittipaldi, who recovers good points from teammate and number one competitor Vesti.
Drivers general standings see first still Frederik Vesti with 347 points, in front of Enzo Fittipaldi (247), David Schumacher (222), Igor Fraga (205), Olli Caldwell (190), Raul Guzman (132) and Sophia Floersch (124).
In the teams standings Prema Powerteam (678) is definitely first, followed by DR Formula (337) and US Racing (292).
