Schumacher’s Strong Form Continues with Double Nurburgring Pole

by Paul Hensby
Mick Schumacher - Prema Theodore Racing - Nurburgring

After taking the first win of the Nurburgring weekend on Saturday morning, Mick Schumacher continued his good form into the second Qualifying session, with the German securing a double pole for races two and three, which will take place on Sunday.

The Prema Theodore Racing driver, who now sits second in the championship standings following his fourth win of the FIA European Formula 3 Championship season on Saturday, set a time of 1:20.805 to top the second Qualifying session and give him pole for race two, while his second-best time of 1:20.822 was enough to see him take race three pole as well.

Robert Shwartzman, who started on pole but finished second to Schumacher in race one, will start alongside his Prema team-mate in both races, while championship leader Daniel Ticktum will start third in both races as well for Motopark.

Shwartzman ended 0.087 seconds behind Schumacher for race two, while 0.155 seconds separated the duo for the grid for race three – Ticktum was a further 0.020 and 0.037 seconds back respectively on the Russian.

Marcus Armstrong will start fourth on the grid for race two for Prema Theodore Racing ahead of Hitech Bullfrog GP’s Alex Palou, while Ralf Aron of Prema Theodore Racing completes the third row of the grid ahead of Motopark’s Jonathan Aberdein and Carlin’s Sacha Fenestraz.

Completing the top ten for race one is Prema Theodore Racing’s Guanyu Zhou and Motopark’s Jüri Vips, the latter of which will be looking for strong race performances after seeing his championship challenge take a hit when he was caught up in someone else’s accident at turn one in race one.

Palou will start race three from fourth as he swaps places on the grid with Armstrong, while Fenestraz moves to sixth on the grid ahead of Aron, Vips, Zhou and Hitech Bullfrog GP’s Enaam Ahmed, who will be disappointed with his performance particularly after finishing a strong fourth in race one.

Once again, the Qualifying session was extremely close, with less than a second separating the first nineteen cars for race two, while the same margin covers the first seventeen cars for race three.
