Maro Engel Macau preview

After my very successful debut season in British F3 we are now looking forward to the prestigious Macau GP. Since the end of the BF3 season I have had a little time to regain all my energy. As well, we have spent two days testing at Croft.

After my very successful debut season in British F3 we are now looking forward to the prestigious Macau GP.

Since the end of the BF3 season I have had a little time to regain all my energy. As well, we have spent two days testing at Croft. This test was very positive and productive as we have been able to test several different things on the car. From the 15 cars present we where comfortably quickest on both days.

Following these two test days the two priorities for Macau were to maintain and further improve my fitness level as well as watching onboard video footage from the Macau track. Especially the video footage is extremely important as it gives you a good idea about this unique track. Macau is beyond doubt the most demanding circuit in F3. The combination of racing with very low downforce for the mega long straight and having to master the tight and twisty corners on the mountain without downforce is what makes Macau so demanding and special.

For me this will undoubtedly be one of the year's big highlights to witch I'm greatly looking forward to. I have great faith that my Carlin Motorsport team will give me a fantastic car, as they have always gone well there. It will be a pleasure to take on the leading Euroseries and All-Japan F3 guys on neutral tyres. I believe, together with my BF3 colleagues we can show how strong the British series is. Due to the fact this will be my first trip to Macau, it is hard to make predictions, but I will be looking for a top 5 finish.
