British F3 – Frederick takes Race Two victory

Kaylen Frederick was the victor in British F3’s second race of the weekend to make amends for a difficult first race on Saturday.

The Carlin driver had started pole for Race One, but a series of unfortunate events saw the American finish 13th.

A start not without incident saw Hampus Ericsson and Kris Wright come to blows at Shell Oils hairpin, the American retiring on the spot as he hit the wall, while the Swede made it back to the pitlane, with Ayrton Simmons retiring late on with technical issues.

Despite those incident, the Safety Car was not deployed and the American duo of Frederick and Verhagen were able to pull away from Maldonado, who had to work hard to keep Jewiss at bay early in the race.

There were no such issues in Race Two as the 16-year-old simply drove away from compatriot Neil Verhagen and the rest of the field, with Kiern Jewiss and Manuel Maldonado in a race-long scrap for third that eventually went the way of the Venezuelan.

Sassakorn Chaimongkol was next on the road but a 10s penalty for a jump start dropped the Thai driver to 13th, with Josh Mason holding almost the rest of the entire field up to take fifth, with Race One winner Clement Novolak, Ulysse De Pauw, Johnathan Hoggard and Nazim Azman.

Ben Pedersen, Lucas Petersson and Pavan Ravishankar rounded off the finishers ahead of Chaimongkol.
