Rosenqvist in Hockenheim for Formula 3 Cup Third Race Weekend PDF Print E-mail

This weekend's ATS Formula 3 Cup championship sets camp at a truly legendary motor racing venue; Hockenheim. Felix Rosenqvist arrives at the third round of the year on the back of his first F3 podium at Sachsenring last time out, and can take added comfort from having set the fastest time in pre-season testing at Hockenheim. Rosenqvist showed that he and his Performance Racing team are able to compete at the front after qualifying in second and third respectively for the two races at Sachsenring. Following his Race 1 podium, however, Rosenqvist had to retire from the second race after crashing out when following a competitor a bit too closely on the opening lap. Team-mate Alon Day has had a tougher start to the season overall, but Day was also quick in Hockenheim testing this winter and will be looking to prove his real worth - and score his first points of the year in the process.

Unlike the normal scenario, ATS Formula 3 Cup will not be the only F3 series on the programme this time around, as the British championship joins the action at Hockenheim. Both series sport large fields and will combine to a fascinating F3 weekend, although any straight comparisons between the two will be difficult to execute as the German championship uses slightly older chassis than its British equivalent. It is worth noting that the two series will not be sharing the circuit at any time, but will be racing independently of each other.

As usual, two races are set to be run this weekend. Before the event officially kicks off on Friday, teams and drivers will gather for a full-day test at the circuit on Thursday. Felix Racing will cover everything that happens at Hockenheim over the weekend, with our LIVE commentary service providing you with all the latest news and minute-by-minute updates on Rosenqvist's progress.

The Hockenheim circuit has hosted the German Formula 1 Grand Prix on and off since 1970, and was initially famed and feared for its exceptionally long straights which offered fans and drivers alike some spectacular - yet sometimes dangerous - racing in the forests surrounding the village of Heidelberg. In 2002, the circuit was shortened and brought up to more modern standards, but the atmosphere in the unaltered stadium complex at the end of the lap - the so-called Motodrom - remains vibrant and unchanged.
