Trouble-free start for Felix at Paul Ricard

FORMULA 3 EURO SERIES
Date: April 1st, 2011
Venue: Circuit Paul Ricard (France)
Weather: Sunny/dry

Felix posted the sixth-fastest time as free practice at Circuit Paul Ricard brought the 2011 Formula 3 Euro Series season into life this morning.

Felix completed 21 laps during his first-ever run at the 5.791 km circuit to end up 0.977s slower than team-mate Nigel Melker, who opened proceedings by topping the timesheets. Roberto Merhi went second-fastest, while Felix found himself just over six tenths behind third-placed Marco Wittmann.

No major problems or incidents interrupted the session, which lasted for an hour and took place under beautiful clear skies and in a comfortable temperature of 20 degrees Celsius. Several drivers indicated that one of the main keys for the rest of the weekend will be to find slipstreaming opportunities down the 2-kilometre Mistral Straight; a huge task given the competitive nature of the championship, with nobody willing to compromise their own performance one bit.

Coming up next is the first qualifying session of the year - a highly interesting occasion which will provide the first real answers to just how quick the teams and drivers really are. Qualifying can be followed as it unfolds here at www.felixracing.se, with LIVE commentary of the all-important session set to commence at 15.30 CET.
