Kevin Ceccon continued his point-scoring run in the GP3 Series with another pair of top eight finishes at Silverstone.

The Ocean Racing Technology driver finished eighth in the first race of the weekend, handing him pole for race two. He was unable to hold on to the lead on a drying track before switching from wet to slick tyres and making it home in seventh.

Ceccon has now scored points in eight consecutive races, and is eighth in the points.

“It was a difficult weekend but also a positive one,” the Italian youngster declared.

“The fact that we secured points in both races is good for the team, for morale, and for the championship.

“Unfortunately, the choice of tyres was not obvious this Sunday, and in the end we did not make the right one, and I was not able to stay in the front.”

Irish teammate Robert Cregan finished the two races in 20th and 15th places and seemed pleased enough.

“I made it to the end of both races, it was very difficult but I learned a lot of things,” he said.

“I was fairly close to finishing in the top 10 in the second race and I think that we are on the right path to achieve this objective.”

The team's third driver Carmen Jorda was unable to take part in either race after she attempted to qualify with a fever.
