Felix takes seventh in Qualifying 1

Q1Felix will start the first FIA Formula 3 European Championship race of the Hockenheim weekend from seventh place on the grid.

After topping the times following the opening flurry of laps in the first of Friday’s two qualifying showdowns, Felix ran wide at the fast Motodrom Kurve halfway through the session, with his Mücke Motorsport car reacting strangely afterwards with suspected suspension damage.

As a result, Felix did not feature in the final battle for top positions, tumbling to seventh.

Race 1 pole position went to F1-bound Max Verstappen, who topped the session on a 1m32.002s. Felix’s best lap remained an early 1m32.485s effort.

Regular GP2 frontrunner Stefano Coletti – making a guest appearance in the FIA F3 European Championship this weekend as he prepares for the forthcoming Macau Grand Prix – qualified 20th, one second behind Felix.

Next up today is Qualifying 2, which commences at 17.40 local time.

FELIX:

“Things were feeling great in the beginning of the session, but after I ran wide into the Motodrom, something happened. I think I picked up some sort of suspension damage, because I wasn’t able to push any more. It was a shame, but it was my own fault and I will try to do better in the second session later today. The potential is there to challenge for the front row, and that’s what I’ll go for.”
