Raffaele Marciello has showed the rest of the field how it’s done as he took his second F3 win of the weekend.

The kfzteile24 Mücke Motorsport driver started from pole position to gain the win – extending his championship lead after main rival Felix Rosenqvist made a poor start to only finish 9th.

Even a late safety car following a collision between Ryan Nissany and Lucas Wolf couldn’t stop the Ferrari backed Italian – mastering a perfect restart to leave Luis Felipe Derani and Alex Sims second and third respectively.

The Prema Powerteam driver said: “My race was similar to the first race, my car was very good again. The re-start after the safety car phase didn’t cause any problems either and then I could pull a gap again very easily.”

In a case of déjà vu from race one, Carlin‘s Jordan King finished fourth blocking out Prema Powerteam‘s Lucas Auer to see the rookie Brit gain a good haul of F3 points.

Sven Muller showed his skills at overtaking to finish sixth ahead of Alex Lynn who himself was chased by Felix Serralles.

Alex Sims, racing for ThreeBond with T-Sport was disappointed with his finish stating: After the first race, I could slightly improve myself and we made the car a little bit faster, but unfortunately, that didn’t reflect in the result. But all in all, of course, I am happy with my second podium finish of the weekend. I don’t know yet whether I will continue to race in F3 for ThreeBond with T-Sport. Initially, our agreement is only for this weekend, but I would love to be there at Zandvoort as well.”
