ABERDEIN ATTACK THWARTED

Jonathan Aberdein
“We had great pace all weekend,” Jonathan rued. “We were second in Friday morning practice and then I put it on the second row of the grid and we were confident of a great weekend. “Unfortunately I managed to clip my front wing in that chaotic red-flagged first race and we decided to stop because I was going nowhere.
“The second race only lasted a few laps before it was red-flagged and then the time ran out — I started ninth and that’s where I stayed, but at least we scored some points, but my first race disaster saw me starting right at the back, which promised an interesting third race as the Nurburgring is a notoriously difficult track to pass on.
“The final was a good race —  I passed six cars on the first lap and then four more through the race to go from 26th to 16th, so I’m pretty happy with that. “Sadly I never had much to take away from the Nurburgring besides having a little more good experience  under my belt.” There are two rounds of the ADAC German Formula 4 championship left — the first being at the Sachsenring 15-17 September.
