Robert Doornbos qualified 7th of his group for Race2 at Pau

Robert Doornbos continued his challenge in the F.3 Euro Series championship this weekend at Pau. Team Ghinzani driver #16, who set the 2nd fastest time in session1 of the free practice and the 6th best lap time in the second session, will start from the 7th row on Race 2 scheduled on Monday 9th June at 14.30, having qualified in 14th position.

Robert's effort to secure a top lap time for Monday race were scuttled today by the traffic and yellow flags found during the 30 minutes of qualifying. He drove with great determination and was mindful to exploit at the maximum his tyres looking for a clear lap that he was not able to find until the last minutes of qualifying.

"I got held by a lot of cars in front of mine and by the yellow flags I found just when I was going to make my fastest lap" -- commented Robert -- "It's really a pity for me and the team itself not to have qualified in a better position for the Race 2 that will be held on Monday. The car was quite good, like this morning first free practice session, but I was not able to confirmed my 2nd position I had there".
