Barnicoat takes maiden European Formula 3 triumph at a wet Hungaroring for Hitech
Brit Ben Barnicoat claimed his maiden European Formula 3 win in the third race at the Hungaroring last weekend.
The Hitech driver took the lead when team-mate George Russell collided with poleman Maximilian Gunther – a crash that earned the Brit a three-place grid penalty for the next round at Pau.
Barnicoat was able to control the remainder of the race on a wet track. “It was an amazing race for me and I’m extremely happy,” said the Racing Steps Foundation-backed driver. “The track was like driving on ice. It was very hard.”
Estonian Ralf Aron won the opening race, while Prema Powerteam team-mate Gunther became the first 2016 two-time winner in the second contest.
