First taste of victory in Pau

After my last race in Donington I have been quite busy again. As soon as I returned from the UK, I took part in the annual football charity match of F1 drivers vs. Monaco Star Team. This year we managed to win 6:4 and it was a pleasant evening for every one.

During Thursday's F1 and GP2 free practice sessions I made a short visit to the track to see my friends and colleagues in the pits. On Friday I left to Pau where I then competed in the Historic Grand Prix in order to learn this difficult street circuit. This was the perfect way to get a head start on my opposition for this weekends F3 race in the streets of Pau. I raced in the prototype class in a Lotus 23B from 1963 sharing the drive with my team mate Christian Bakkerud. It was a very enjoyable experience and together we won our class comfortably.

Pau is a very technical and demanding street circuit as it combines very fast sections and slower parts. I believe it will be very beneficial to us, that I now know the track. My aim for this weekend is once again to get two podium finishes and I will try everything to repeat my win there from the Historic Grand Prix!
