Austrian Dunner delivered a strong performance on his debut in the Ardennes with his maiden win in the series on Saturday and a third place on Sunday. Hahn scored his best result of the season with sixth place with Fittje also making into the top-ten
 


Drivex completed Round 3 of the F3 Open at historic Spa-Francorchamps with a host of visits to podium with Austrian teenager Lukas Dunner. Christian Hahn secured his best result of a his 2018 F3 Open so far and Jannes Fittje also finished inside of the points at the Belgium venue despite a tough weekend.



German Fittje took 6th-fastest during Friday’s free practice sessions with Dunner and Hahn also making into the top-ten in eighth and ninth place respectively. Fittje spearheaded the charge for Drivex in Q1 by posting a lap of 2:13.344, which left him fourth on the starting grid.



Dunner’s performance was impressive as the Austrian youngster was fastest in rookies’ class and 7th overall on the starting grid with his 2:13.430. Finally Hahn couldn’t take advantage from slipstreams – almost mandatory in the first and final sectors-and started from 13th with a best lap of 2:14.414.



Saturday’s race 1 was an incident-packed one with several cars retiring from the very beginning. In fact, Dunner managed to avoid a pile up on lap one what forced to deploy the safety car for a couple of laps.



With the race was green-flagged once again, Dunner and Hahn started to move through the field. Finally, Dunner fended off Bent Viscaal to claim Rookie win and brought fourth place overall home. Brazil’s Hahn took the checkered flag in sixth place with Fittje finishing ninth despite a clash with Michaël Benyahia.



Q2 took place on Sunday morning and Dunner set to start from fourth place with a lap of 2:14.246. Fittje qualified seventh on the grid with a lap of 2:14.478 and finally Hahn slightly improved his starting grid position with 12th and a time of 2:15.026.



 Later in the race, Dunner couldn’t make a perfect start and lost some places when the lights went off. After 13 laps, Hahn came ninth with Dunner on his tail tenth but more importantly third in class. German Fittje ended up 12th after another challenging race for him.




F3 Open’s Round 4 will take place at the Hungaroring. The Magyar circuit has an extremely tricky nature, which is notoriously difficult to overtake on.
