Official mid-season testing: Lausitzring - Day 1

FORMULA 3 EURO SERIES
Date: June 8th, 2011
Venue: EuroSpeedway Lausitz (Germany)
Weather: Changeable conditions, sunny/dry

After the jinx of Austria last weekend, Felix returned to the cockpit of his Mücke Motorsport Dallara as official Formula 3 Euro Series mid-season testing commenced at EuroSpeedway Lausitz in Germany today.

Felix carried on with his competitive form which has catapulted him into a true frontrunner over the last couple of race meetings, as he ended up third-quickest in the opening morning session run under clear blue skies. Team-mate Nigel Melker topped the timesheets ahead of Marco Wittmann (Signature), with Felix's best effort placing him 0.169s adrift of position one.

The afternoon session had only lasted for about 20 minutes when a heavy rain storm hit the circuit, virtually flooding the venue and washing away every opportunity of improving the times set during the morning. In the few laps of dry running early on, however, Felix went second overall behind Kimiya Sato after the Japanese fitted new tyres to his Motopark Academy car while Felix and the majority of the other drivers stayed on used rubber. Laurens Vanthoor went third-fastest in the afternoon, with Melker fourth. In total, Felix completed 48 laps in the concluding session - 35 of them in rain.

Testing draws to a close tomorrow.  
 

COMMENT | FELIX
"We tried out a number of different things today, and managed to stick to our programme despite the rain in the afternoon. The first session was particularly productive, and I was among the two or three quickest throughout the day. I got a little bit untidy on my fastest lap, though, but it's good to see that we continue to have good pace. I wasn't quite as comfortable in the wet, however - much like at Spielberg a few days ago - but I think we will get there as confidence builds with added running."
