Masters of Formula 3 winner Felix Rosenqvist finally scored his first victory in the F3 Euro Series in the penultimate race of the season at Hockenheim.

After narrowly missing out on victory in the first race of the weekend to champion Roberto Merhi, Rosenqvist started the second race from seventh on the reverse grid.

This didn't stop him though, and it only took three laps before he had overtaken Carlos Munoz for the lead of the race. Colombian Munoz was soon handed a drive-through penalty for a jump start, handing second place to Merhi.

Rosenqvist remained in control of the race until the finish, leading Merhi across the line with an advantage of just under two seconds.

“When I was fighting with Carlos Munoz for the lead, I didn’t know that he had already been given a drive-through penalty,” said Rosenqvist.

“I only found out when I had overtaken him already. For me, the rest of the race was about controlling the race. My car has been perfect throughout the weekend and I am happy to have won my first race in the Formula 3 Euro Series.”

Daniel Abt took the final step on the podium in third place, ahead of Signature teammate Marco Wittmann and Nigel Melker of Mucke Motorsport. Daniel Juncadella finished sixth, allowing Wittmann to extend his advantage in the battle over the runner-up spot from six to eight points with just one race remaining.
