David Beckmann was once again the only German to score points in the first Formula 3 race at Silverstone. The 20-year-old Trident pilot finished ninth in the seventh season run of the junior series and will therefore start the sprint race from start position two on Sunday (9.45 a.m.) according to the reverse grid rule.
Beckmann’s last sprint in Hungary was his first win of the season in Formula 3. In the drivers’ standings, the 20-year-old increased his account to 49.5 points and remains fourth. Beckmann’s teammate Lirim Zendeli finished 13th.
Sophia Flörsch (Campos / 22nd place) and David Schumacher (Charouz), son of the former Formula 1 driver Ralf Schumacher, are still without points. Formula 2 driver Mick Schumacher’s cousin had to start from the pit lane due to technical problems and finished 25th and last.
