Sacha Fenestraz finished in the podium positions in both races at the Nurburgring last weekend, including his second victory of 2017, with the results moving himself up to second place in the championship.

The Josef Kaufmann Racing driver finished third during Saturday’s opener at the German circuit but was dominant during Sunday’s wet second encounter, winning by almost four seconds despite most of the race being run behind the safety car!

Fenestraz praised his team for giving him a good car around the Nurburgring, with the French-Argentine driver feeling that since the round in Monaco back in May, they have been heading in the right direction during every race weekend.

“It was a great weekend, I’m really happy,” said Fenestraz. “I couldn’t hope for more than a win and closing the gap at the top of the Championship. 

“The conditions were tough and it got really close out there at one stage, but I came back well and really pushed on to get a decent gap in the end for the win, after a good podium in the race before.

“The team have done another fantastic job, I was really pleased with the car. We were fast all weekend again. But we have been looking good since Monaco and picking up lots of points along the way, so everything is moving along nicely and I’m feeling confident right now.”

Fenestraz’s performances at the Nurburgring moved him up to second place in the championship standings heading into this weekend’s round at the Red Bull Ring, just six points behind Robert Shwartzman, and he is aiming to maintain this momentum in Austria.

“I’m working hard every week and trying my best to get maximum points,” admitted Fenestraz. “The aim is to win the Championship if I can, but at this stage, I’m just focusing on every race as they come.

“I’m driving well and the team is doing a great job, so now it’s quickly onto Red Bull Ring. Hopefully, we can do the same again as this week and keep the pressure on at the top of the Championship.”
