Thailand’s Sandy Stuvik celebrates his first victory in F3 Open today, as he managed to hold off Yarin Stern at the final stage of the race in a great battle. There was another fight for third place between Vicky Piria and Alex Toril. Although Piria finished ahead, she has got a five-second penalty, and Toril took the podium finish.
Despite leading the race in the first couple of laps, Spencer Pigot finished only fifth right in front of Denis Nagulin and Alexandre Cougnaud. There was also a great battle for the Copa race victory amongst Lorenzo Paggi, Nicholas Pohler and Liam Venter, however, Paggi spun in the middle of the race, and Venter clinched the victory, closely followed by Pohler. The last point-scoring position belongs to Valeria Carballo, who also took the fastest lap of the race.
Saturday’s race-winner Nelson Mason couldn’t finish the race, moreover, he couldn’t really start it, as he clashed with Santiago Urrutia at the very beginning.
After the first weekend of the 2013 season, Stuvik leads the championship with 37 points, as the second is Nelson Mason with 27 points, who looks quite unbeatable at this moment despite his disappointing second race. After Mason, the championship staninds are very tight, with Toril, Stern, Hector Hurst and Roberto La Rocca all within ten points.
