Dan made it two Sunday podiums in a row at the Red Bull Ring, Austria, following up his eighth-place finish in the FIA Formula 2 Championship Feature Race with an impressive drive to second in the Sprint Race.
Dan Ticktum: “At the beginning it looked like we might be in for a difficult weekend. We weren’t there in qualifying but in race one I did exactly what I was set out to do, which was to get the reverse grid pole. I felt I drove well and the team made a good strategic call to pit me early and put me into clear air. In the Sprint Race, I couldn’t get the tyres up to temperature in the beginning, so we definitely need to be a bit more aggressive and put more energy through the tyres. Pretty much every lap I did on Sunday was within a tenth and I was right on the limit. I think if we do some more good work over the next few days, we’ll be able to challenge for victories.”
Feature Race: 8th (+4 points)
Sprint Race: 2nd (+12 points)
