Daniel Ticktum enjoyed another strong weekend in the Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 Series at the Nurburgring, and having taken his maiden win in the previous round in Hungary, he felt that his weekend saw him make a big step forward in performance.

The Red Bull-backed Arden Motorsport driver was much happier with his dry weather pace in Germany, and proved that by finishing fourth in race one, and he continued to show good pace in wet conditions, claiming a podium finish for second place on Sunday morning.

Ticktum was given a post-race penalty from the stewards on Saturday for cutting across the chicane and gaining an advantage as he battled Max Fewtrell, but the five-second time penalty did not cost him a position, and he remains on top of the rookie championship with four rounds and ten races remaining of the season.

“We got lots of points this weekend and it has been a great step forward,” said Ticktum. “The big thing has been our pace improvement in the dry which is what we needed, the wet pace was already there.

“It is such a great feeling being on the podium after all the hard work that we have put in with Arden.

“The objective now is to continue to build on our results here, and from the Hungaroring, at the Red Bull Ring next weekend. Having tested there in the past it gives me confidence that we will have success at this track.”
