German F3 champion Marvin Kirchhofer put on yet another dominant performance in the series, taking the victory in race one of the final round of the season at Hockenheim.
Having held on to the lead at the start, Kirchhofer was allowed to break away from the field as his teammates Artem Markelov and Emil Bernstorff were busy fighting for second.
The Russian overtook Bernstorff on the opening lap, but the latter had more pace, eventually retaking the position. There were no changes in the top three from that point on, with Kirchhofer leading Bernstorff and Markelov in yet another 1-2-3.
Performance Racing’s John Bryant-Meisner managed to keep up with Markelov until the end of the race, settling for fourth, with Gustavo Menezes taking P5.
Nabil Jeffri took sixth, ahead of Jordi Weckx, series rookie Roman Beregech and Nicolai Sylvest. Trophy winner Thomas Amweg rounded out the top ten.
