Felix wins at Zandvoort!

Zandvoort (the Netherlands) | Date: August 25th, 2012 | Weather: Drying/sunny

By Mattias Persson

Felix finally broke free from his 2012 jinx to claim his first win of the season with a controlled drive in the opening race of the weekend at Zandvoort on Saturday morning.

Setting off from the front row of the grid next to pole-sitter Sven Müller (Prema Powerteam), Felix used another trademark start to grab the lead on the run to Tarzan Bocht. From there, he was never challenged, immediately establishing a one-second lead over Müller on the first lap and eventually winning by twice that margin.

To underline this emphatic performance, Felix also posted the fastest lap of the race as he gave Mücke Motorsport their second win of the year, leading home a trio of Prema Powerteam cars in the process.

The victory is Felix's second in Formula 3 Euro Series following his success at last year's Hockenheim finale, and his first in the new-for-2012 FIA European F3 Championship.

Felix will start this afternoon's second race from eighth place due to the partially-reversed grid regulations in force in the championship.

"Finally! This is what we've been working for all year, and after all the numerous setbacks we've encountered on the way, this is even sweeter than I thought it would be. The race was relatively straightforward for me, and it feels so good to have been able to achieve this - my first real Formula 3 Euro Series win - with Mücke Motorsport. We have another race to think about this afternoon, but this one was our main target for today and I am happy that I was able to prove what we're capable of when we stay out of trouble."
