British F3: WHAT THEY SAID. Lundqvist, Maini, Cane and Kjaergaard react to Race One

Linus Lundqvist took pole and win on a super Saturday for the British F3 championship leader to hold off championship rival Kush Maini, while second in the standings Nicolai Kjaergaard could only manage sixth after qualifying seventh.

Jordan Cane made an impressive return to the podium. Here’s what they had to say following a busy Saturday.

Lundqvist:

“Today was perfect, we got pole and win and I’m super happy. There’s another two races tomorrow but I’m going to enjoy this victory for a short time.

When someone is as close as Kush was there doesn’t go a lap where you aren’t looking in your mirrors, you sort of look at what they’re trying to do and I made a small mistake out of the hairpin and he got a run on me. We went side by side a Brooklands and Copse, I just stayed cool and was able to stay ahead.

I would like a win where it’s easier but all in all we’ve had a great car all weekend so thanks to Double R. I just did my part today.

You could say it’s almost perfect. I’m always happy with a win and it’s always a bonus if your main rival isn’t doing too well. We’re always happy with a win when it’s there.”

Maini:

Kjaergaard:

We’ve struggled a lot yesterday and today. We were slow yesterday and we’re only a bit better today, Clement did a really good job in qualifying.

I didn’t put my lap together so I was P7 and a lot of others put new tyres on and we didn’t have the pace anyway. It was going to be hard.

Tomorrow we need to have a look and see what we can do, we definitely need to find some speed as we weren’t fast enough.

Hopefully these things even themselves out, normally we do have a very quick car. This time it’s weird, we just can’t figure out exactly what the problem is. We seem to have the same problem every time. Hopefully tomorrow we’ll be faster.

Cane:

You always aim for the top step but third isn’t bad, Douglas gave me a great car. It was about focussing and staying with the front two,  got close towards the end as they battled more than they did. It’s a good result today.

I knew Maini had four new tyres, where we had two like Linus, set the second fastest lap time so we’re in a  good position for race three. We’ll be pushing to stick with these boys tomorrow. This is the one place you can have a go at overtaking, as we have a lot of downforce it usually is quite difficult.
