Felix goes fifth in opening 2012 free practice session

FORMULA 3 EURO SERIES / FIA EUROPEAN FORMULA 3 CHAMPIONSHIP
Venue:

Felix went fifth fastest in the opening practice session of the 2012 Formula 3 Euro Series and FIA European Formula 3 Championship season at Hockenheim on Friday morning.

Practice took place under beautifully clear skies in warm temperatures, and several drivers complained about a general lack of grip as the track took time to rubber in. Felix experienced a slight problem with the rear of his Mücke Motorsport car on his first run in the 1 hour 50 minute session, but the team was able to fix the issue without delay and Felix duly got down to work - eventually ending up 0.4s adrift of ultimate pace-setter Carlos Sainz Jr. (Carlin).

The session remained uninterrupted throughout, which gave all drivers plenty of laps and valuable track time. Daniel Juncadella, one of this year's pre-season title favourites, wound up second to produce a Spanish 1-2 at the top of the field, while Hannes van Asseldonk and Raffaele Marciello were the other drivers to place themselves ahead of Felix on the timesheets.

Felix's team-mate at Mücke Motorsport, reigning ADAC Formel Masters champion Pascal Wehrlein, was eighth fastest in a session where 11 drivers were covered by less than one second. The true balance of power is not likely to be seen until this afternoon's qualifying session, however, as many felt practice was compromised by the low grip conditions that are expected to improve over the weekend. 

Qualifying is set to begin at 16.25 local time.
