Montreal, Canada, June 30, 2004 -- Bruno Spengler and the other participants of the Euro Formula 3 Series will compete in the next two rounds of the Euro F3 Series this weekend in Magny-Cours, France as part of the prestigious F1 Grand Prix of France. This will be the first time that Canadian driver Bruno Spengler will race in front of the Formula 1 personnel.
"For me, to be honest, this race is not different from the other ones," said the 20-year old Canadian who lies 12th in the F3 standings with 11 points. "To race in front of the Formula 1 team owners does not really make a difference for me. I always put the same pressure on my shoulders and I always drive the best I can."
A former two-time French karting champion, Spengler looks forward to driving on the fast and technical circuit of Magny-Cours "The Formula 1 cars will lay down quite a bit of rubber on the tarmac and there will be a lot of grip. We may need to adjust our set-up as a consequence," said the member of the Mercedes-Benz Junior Team.
"I know the new track layout because we raced there last year. In order to be quick, you must be very fast in the Estoril corner and the two chicanes. These chicanes are tricky because they are almost impossible to see when you are sitting low in the race car. Magny-Cours is a circuit that requires a smooth and precise driving style."
