Dan Ticktum

Ticktum takes on the Norisring

#27 Dan Ticktum (GBR – Motopark Dallara Volkswagen)
FIA F3 European Championship position: 3rd – 63 points – after 6 of 30 races

The Norisring, the third round of the FIA F3 European Championship following Pau and Hungary and as different again as the opening rounds were to each other. A street race, but not as you know it. Clearly unique in the calendar and for Dan Ticktum, the Briton who turned 19 on June 8th, it is a new challenge.

"It should be good" enthuses the Red Bull Junior and, following his win in Hungary, he is two points off second in the title chase and 20 shy of the lead. "It´s a new one for me so I've got to learn it quickly. I've been in the sim at Red Bull and that´s always a big help."

Looks can be deceiving

"It looks simple enough but often things that look like that are not simple at all. The Motopark guys will have a good set-up, they've been racing here for years so it´s just up to me to make the best use of it."

"I think it's a place where race craft is very important, measured aggression is probably the thing, get that balance right. I'm looking forward to it."
