James Pull: “Just Tiny Mistakes that Cost me Positions”

Two podiums over the Snetterton weekend will be a positive for James Pull. But a puncture in race two and a positive weekend for his BRDC British F3 rivals sees him drop to sixth in the overall standings.

Pull started the weekend in fine form, regularly appearing at the top of the time sheets in testing before benefiting from a damp, drying qualifying session to take pole position, his first of the series.

“Pretty up and down weekend, but plenty of positives to be taken.” said Pull. “Qualifying was obviously really good allowing me to show my pace. I suffered a little mistake which cost me the win in race one, whilst a mis-shift cost me a place in race three. Just tiny mistakes that cost me positions, which is something I can learn from, but I still earned a lot of points which is great.”

While the Carlin driver will put down his drop in positions to small mistakes, the loss in points has been vital in his championship hunt, especially with points leader Enaam Ahmed taking advantage to win race one and three, from pole.

“I’m really looking forward to getting back out in Silverstone, as I know we’ll be fast there. I’m focussed on scoring as many points as possible and for sure, I’m confident the win will come”

Pull struggled during his F4 British Championship event at Silverstone last year, failing to record a podium, though with more testing under his belt, should still be in contention for that illusive first win.
