Just a week after the Nürburgring weekend, the Formula 3 Euro Series teams and drivers travel to Zandvoort, Netherlands. At the 4.307-kilometre circuit embedded in the North Sea dunes, Pascal Wehrlein (Mücke Motorsport) wants to confirm his good shape by adding more podiums to his tally. Thanks to his first Euro Series win he secured at the Nürburgring, the 17-year old German rookie worked his way up to second position in the championship behind the far more experienced Spaniard Daniel Juncadella (Prema Powerteam).
21-year old Juncadella travels to the Netherlands with boosted self-confidence. After all, he already celebrated a major success at the former Formula 1 circuit located not far from Amsterdam by winning this year’s edition of the prestigious ’Masters of Formula 3’. The second place was secured by his team-mate Raffaele Marciello who currently holds third championship position.
Felix Rosenqvist (Mücke Motorsport) also has fond memories of Zandvoort. The Swede won the Masters in 2011. In addition, Pascal Wehrlein’s 20-year old team-mate, currently sixth in the championship, made it to the podium in each of last year’s three Euro Series races contested at Zandvoort. For Wehrlein, however, the 2012 Masters was the first race at Zandvoort and he impressed by securing the fine fifth place right away.
Pascal Wehrlein (Mücke Motorsport): “My Formula 3 Euro Series win last weekend at the Nürburgring was just great. And the fact that it was my first Formula 3 win turned it into an even more special experience. It made me really happy as Mücke Motorsport and I worked for achieving this goal since the beginning of our cooperation. No we are travelling to Zandvoort and I hope to be able to tie in with this success, there.”
