Felix bags provisional Masters of F3 pole with stunning Zandvoort lap

RTL GP Masters of Formula 3
Zandvoort (the Netherlands) | Date: 6 July 2013 | Weather: Sunny

By Mattias Persson

Felix has claimed provisional pole position for the 2013 running of the RTL GP Masters of Formula 3, after going fastest by nearly three tenths of a second to post a spectacular sub-1m31s lap at Zandvoort on Saturday morning.

Throwing in a lap of 1m30.839s, Felix toured the Dutch venue almost one second quicker than Daniel Juncadella managed on his way to pole in 2012, edging out Carlin's Harry Tincknell by a full 0.292s in the process.

Felix's trio of Mücke Motorsport team-mates ended the session in 12th, 19th and 21st places respectively.

The final shape of the grid for the 2013 RTL GP Masters of Formula 3 will become evident after this afternoon's second qualifying session, which takes place at 15.15 local time and runs over 20 minutes. Whether Felix's Q1 effort is enough to eventually hand him pole position, in other words, remains to be seen - but sub-1m31s laps at Zandvoort are rare.


"That was nice! I got a very good lap together, but it wasn't perfect and I still think there are a few more tenths to find around here. The team has done a fantastic job setting the car up for the Kumho tyres, which is quite challenging, and the balance was very much to my liking. I'm not the guy to take anything for granted, though, and the job isn't done yet - there is still one more session to go. Hopefully, this time will allow me to start near the front, but we really can't rest on our laurels and I will push just as hard this afternoon."
