DMSB doesn't want to allow round ten of the championship.

The presidency of Germany's motor sport government DSMSB has decided that round ten of the International German F3 Championship won't be allowed to score for the championship, as the race management had misinterpreted the regulations and penalised Gary Paffet unjustly by a stop and go penalty.

Paffet had stalled his engine during the start for the race and lost to places, before he was able to re-start his engine and to chase back into his original grid position. This was, as the F3 regulations say, absolutely legal. Already at the track the race management had confirmed to have made a mistake.

Nevertheless all F3 - obviously apart of Paffet's team Rosberg - couldn't understand the decision of the DMSB, as this would mean, that all other 26 drivers would be punished although having finished the race in difficult conditions. Particularly the top-six, who scored valuable championship points and will lose them now.

The F3 association 'Formel 3 Vereinigung e.V.' is not going to accept DMSB's decision and is currently checking if there are possibilities for legal action.
