Following a very unlucky weekend in Hockenheim, Carlin driver George Russell from Wisbech was looking for a positive weekend in Pau.

Having completed free practice, his pace was strong and he felt confident. Unfortunately though, qualifying didn’t go as planned due to a number of reasons.

He said: “We went out for qualifying but didn’t manage to get the most out of it, coming away P5 and P7 in our group which was a lot lower than expected.”

Russell in race one managed to gain one place whilst holding off pressure from behind to finish eighth. In race two, Russell passed a number of cars on track.

Russell said: “From P12, I made a really good start and managed to work my way up to sixth, which was a fantastic result.”

Race three was a similar story, and Russell battled hard once again to finish in eighth and in the points.
