Dan Ticktum

Ticktum with one last push at Hockenheim

#27 Dan Ticktum (GBR – Motopark Dallara Volkswagen)
FIA F3 European Championship position: 2nd – 280 points – after 27 of 30 races

Once more unto the breach. Dan Ticktum takes on the FIA F3 European Championship opposition for the final time this year with three races at the Hockenheimring. It may be a different war and a different foe but there has been something Shakespearean about the Red Bull Junior's 2018 campaign.

While he has led the championship through much of the second half of the season, the 19-year-old Briton now lies second, 49 points off the lead with 75 still on offer. That though is not uppermost in his mind. "To be honest I've got past thinking about it." stated Ticktum plainly. "I am just concentrating on this weekend as three races and I have prepared as fully as I possibly can, as I always do."

Tight with Motopark

"The opposition will do whatever they are doing and Prema will be strong for sure but there is no point thinking about anyone else, we are just concentrating on what we need to do. I drove down from the Motopark team base in Oschersleben so I needed a good sleep to get ready for the weekend. After spending time with the guys we are all on the same page as to what we have to do."

"The track is OK, not a particular favourite but it's OK. Quite a bit is about the engine but the last section is very technical. In that respect it´s got a bit of variety which obviously is good so it should be an interesting weekend, we'll just give it everything and see what happens," concluded Ticktum.
