F3 – Nicholas Latifi chases after the Top 3
This week-end the fifth race of the Italian F3 European Series will take place at Red Bull Ring winding circuit and will be the last race abroad.
After a good performance in the two days tests at the Austrian circuit, he is now ready to go back to competition behind the wheel of the Mygale to defend the colors of the JD Motorsport Team, building on the experience gained in these 4 months. The 17-year-old Italo-Canadian driver has familiarized himself with a difficult car such as a F3, showing progressions race by race.
Getting into the hot spot of the season, Nicholas is focused on making a change in his race season and standing, looking forward to set his sites on a top 3, just after being so close to it in the second race in Budapest.
The Red Bull Ring race will be also valid for the F3 Italian Championship, which has reached the halfway point with this third round. The last three races of the Italian Championship will take place at the circuits of Imola, Vallelunga and Monza.
NICHOLAS LATIFI: “ My target is to reach the Top 3 by the end of the season. The car is good and my feel of it has improved so much as I am much more experienced especially with the handling of the new tyre. So I am confident and hope to maximize my work. The track is one of the best , with elevation changes, slow-med and very fast corners. It has several stretches which are good for passing.”
