The sixth round of the Formula 3 Euro Series, held at Zandvoort, was conditioned by the changing weather conditions; the Dutch track, located near the North Sea shore, was very tough to understand for teams and drivers, especially for rookies. Edoardo Piscopo, at his first race at the venue, also had to tame an annoying wind, that kept bringing gravel on track and prevented from acquiring clean set-up indications. After trying to learn in practice and qualifying, Piscopo appeared to be on the verge of an improvement, but was hit by another car at turn 3 in Race 1. In the second race, held on Sunday, the Red Bull driver ended up in the middle of the pack despite taking off from the back, moving up several positions.

Edoardo Piscopo Red Bull Junior Program Driver:

"It was really had to get used to Zandvoort, due to the changing weather conditions. The team didn't find a right baseline setup, and as a consequence qualifying wasn't brilliant. Traffic played its role too, together with the fact that I was one of the few first-timers there. The track itself is very technical, and I'm sure that with more driving time behind my shoulders I could have achieved strong results. In the first race someone hit me from behind after three corners, while in the second, disputed on wet conditions, I recovered several positions and completed some good moves".
