MAINI FIFTH AT SILVERSTONE
Arjun Maini had a great weekend at Silverstone, managing to rack up a sixth place and a fifth place finish in the two GP3 races held over the weekend. He qualified eighth on the grid for Race 1, in a session that was tightly contested – with the top 10 drivers setting times within eight hunderedth of a second off pole. He lost a few places at the start, but finished at seventh. However, a post race penalty to a driver ahead of him meant he was awarded sixth place. He started Race 2 at P3, courtesy a reverse grid start. He lost a couple of places and finished fifth, keeping his Jenzer Motorsport teammate Alessio Lorandi behind him. Maini is now seventh in the driver’s championship, with a total of 36 points.
