Rain hits opening RTL GP Masters of Formula 3 practice

RTL GP Masters of Formula 3
 Zandvoort (the Netherlands) | Date: July 13th, 2012 | Weather: Rainy, cold

By Mattias Persson

Felix opened the 2012 RTL GP Masters of Formula 3 with seventh place in a wet first free practice session at Zandvoort on Friday.

The skies threw down some hefty rain ahead of the session, which remained wet throughout. Despite the difficult conditions, on-track action was mainly tidy and incident-free, although an off at Masters Bocht by Sven Müller (Prema Powerteam) towards the end did see running cut short with just a couple of minutes to go.

Luis Derani (Fortec) topped the session after posting his time when conditions were at their best, while Felix was not on track at the same time as the Brazilian and set his best lap in a later burst of intensifying rain. Earlier on in the session, all drivers had been touring the Zandvoort circuit simultaneously with Felix constantly among the top two or three on the timesheets.

Second free practice for the RTL GP Masters of Formula 3 takes place later this afternoon.

"A decent start to the weekend. It's no point reading too much into the times as the conditions were changing throughout the session, but we seem to be in good shape and were able to conduct a lot of important running without any problems. We will try to do more of the same in second practice this afternoon, and it's great to be back at Zandvoort; I really love this place."
