Dan secured another points finish for DAMS in the sixth round of the 2020 FIA Formula 2 Championship from Barcelona.
Dan Ticktum: “It was a pretty strong start to the weekend with the best time in practice, but we didn’t get the tyres in the window for qualifying with everyone going slow in the final sector to prepare their laps, so I started eighth. The timing of the safety car in the Feature Race was incredibly unlucky. If we’d stopped one lap later then a podium was almost certain, maybe even a win. We tried an alternate strategy again in the Sprint Race, making a stop for the soft tyre because the hard wasn’t working for us. I started hauling in the cars in front but the stop needed to be a couple laps earlier to score points. Not an ideal weekend, but we’re looking forward to Spa in two weeks.”
Qualifying: 8th | Feature Race: 9th (+2 points) | Sprint Race: 10th, FL (+2 points)
