One victory and three podium places for Volkswagen at Formula 3 opener

After the first three races of the season, Tom Blomqvist is third in the overall standings, 13 points behind the leader. Verstappen is fifth.

Commenting on the results, Tom Blomqvist (GB), Jagonya Ayam with Carlin, Dallara-Volkswagen #31 said, “I’m very pleased with the opening Formula 3 weekend. With my victory on Saturday I knew that it was all about the start and defending the pole position cleverly. In Formula 3, and particularly on tracks such as Silverstone, it is difficult to overtake. Unfortunately that’s why I wasn’t able to get more out of the other two races, but I had some good duels, some of which were with my team-mates. We can build on results like these for the rest of the season.”

Max Verstappen (NL), Van Amersfoort Racing, Dallara-Volkswagen #30 said, “The first race didn’t go to plan, the second was better and the third was great. In contrast with the first two races on Saturday, I got off to a good start on Sunday so I was able to fight for the front positions right away. My tyres wore down about halfway through the race but I kept up a good pace. I’m very happy with finishing fifth and second.”
