Richert Leads Championship After Monza
David Richert managed to finish 2nd in both Drexler Automotive Formula 3 Cup races this weekend at Monza in Italy.
Technical issues with the car's paddle shifting system meant Richert missed virtually all of both practice sessions and was unable to post a representative time in the only qualifying session of the weekend.
Forced to use a stick shift for the races, Richert was able to claw his way back to claim two podium finishes and maintain his narrow championship lead. Although originally classified as 3rd in Race 1, Richert was promoted to 2nd after the race.
"Although I'm a bit disappointed I wasn't able to fight for the win, I am really happy to come away with a couple of good results after the technical issues we faced all weekend. Thanks to Franz Woess Racing and everyone back at home for the continued support." -David Richert
Richert's next race will be back in Italy at the historic Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari in Imola from May 6 - 8.
