Jonathan Summerton Podiums at Spa Francorchamps racetrack
Ending the weekend on a high at the exciting and nostalgic Spa Francorchamps Track with a third place podium in the Formula BMW ADAC Championship. Jonathan Summerton Said" Both the team and I learnt a lot this weekend and I really enjoyed the tough racing conditions. I believe that we can now go forward to an exciting and rewarding season."
Faster drying track conditions caused the wet tires to go slower than expected and thus a back of the pack qualifying, however during the 2nd qualifying Jonathan decided to show his skill and many times led the leader board with sector and lap times. At the end losing his fstest time due to a local yellow rule. placing him in third on the grid.
Terrential rain restricted everyones driving style with cars dropping wheels, spinning and sliding off. Jonathan picked his way from the back and by the final lap 8 had worked his way to a respectable position 13.
At the start Jonathan held back a little due to the track still being very damp in parts..
Up Eau Rouge the cars were flat and at the top four and five wide each jockeying for the better position. Jonathan opted for an outside line and drove around two other cars to enable him to be in the lead on the exit. As he battled for the lead with two other cars he dropped a whell on the damp curb up eau rouge causing him to drop to third place. The 3 leaders battled through out and pulled away from the rest so at the finish it was Jonathan 1 second of the leader and over 3 seconds in front of fouth plac.e A great race. Afterwards
Keke Rossberg said. A good race for Jonathan, he used his head under pressure and has great potential for the future. Team Rosburg is very proud of our accomplishments this weekend.
Next race 29th May Nurburgring F1
