Only one week after Nürburgring race, Formula 3000 circus is again on track, this time for the French GP, which will take place in Magny Cours, sixth round of the F.I.A. Formula 3000 International Championship. In 2002 Coloni Motorsport had taken here a precious podium with Giorgio Pantano and the 2003 race too seems very promising for the Italian team.

Ricardo came at Magny-Cours with a strong desire of redeeming himself after the unlucky Nürburgring race, when the chances of victory of the Brazilian star had vanished because of an accident in the beginning. BMW-WilliamsF1 tester can for sure look now to an important result: besides the second qualifying time at only a few hundredths off the pole position, Ricardo had scored also the second fastest lap in race, showing one more time his talent and the single-seater's qualities.

After the good try in the European GP, Zsolt Baumgartner will aim straight at a great result and, thanks to the car's competitiveness too, the Hungarian driver of Coloni Motorsport will be able to aspire to the first podium in Formula 3000.

On Friday afternoon the free practice, followed by the qualifying session, while the race will take place on Saturday at 16,00 (Eurosport Live, 16).
