CARROLL 6TH IN GERMANY

HOCKENHEIM, GERMANY -- Great Britain's Adam Carroll starts tomorrow's Sprint race from the 3rd on the grid after finishing today's Feature event in 6th. A blistering start saw the 23 year old move from 12th on the grid to 7th by the end of lap one. And the pit-stop was equally quick with Adam coming in from 6th position on lap 14.

By the half way point Carroll had put his car into 5th position but after a tough battle with old British F3 rival Nelson Piquet Jr, that place was lost. At the end of the 40 laps Carroll finished 6th securing 3nd place for tomorrow's shorter race.

Adam Carroll: "That was pretty hard work out there today. I made a good start and was happy with the way everything was going. Throughout the race the car had lots of grip on the rear but was very difficult to steer at the front -- I had so much under-steer and was therefore really slow at the apex of the corners and all the other guys could make up so much ground on me. "Tomorrow should be good from 3rd. It is so important to get a good start and hopefully I'll be back on the podium."
