Despite a strong start to the second Silverstone weekend for the FIA Formula 2 Championship, Dan had to recover from a disappointing Feature Race result to score points on Sunday.
Dan Ticktum: “We started the weekend well, it’s clear we’ve made progress with our one-lap pace which we lacked in the previous race. It looked like we were going to score another strong result after our victory last time out, but we suffered so much with high tyre wear that we were on the back foot. Starting from 15th in the Sprint Race I managed to make up places very quickly, it was another very strong start to get into the top 10 straightaway. After that it was just about management and we bagged a couple of points but obviously we expected more from this weekend. Hopefully we can bring everything together in Barcelona.”
Qualifying: 4th | Feature Race: 15th | Sprint Race: 7th (+2 points)
