Raikkonen Robertson Racing's (Double R) F3 driver Atte Mustonen scored a seventh place finish at the final round of this year's British F3 championship this weekend in Donington. Mustonen's chances of a good finish in the second leg of the two race meeting were scuppered when his team-mate drove into the back of him at the start.

Sunday afternoon's race, the very last of the season, turned into a nightmare for Mustonen. As the cars were leaving the grid Atte's team-mate drove into the back of Atte, robbing the Finnish driver of any chance of a good finish. Carlin's Jaime Alguersuari was once again victorious, with his team-mate Oliver Turvey second and JTR with Marshall Westland's Nick Tandy third.
