Callum Ilott wins third race at Silverstone's Formula 3 weekend
Callum Ilott is the third winner of the FIA Formula 3 European Championship weekend at Silverstone. The 18-year-old Prema Powerteam’s driver clinched his third F3 win of a career after starting from pole in the Sunday morning’s race at the iconic British race track.
Like in the Saturday’s race, Ilott lost the lead in the opening lap to Joel Eriksson (Motopark). On lap 5, Ilott fought back and returned into the lead. Until the end of the race he increased a gap to more than five seconds.
Lando Norris (Carlin), the winner of Friday’s race at Silverstone, added one more podium to his account by finishing third today, ahead of Maximilian Gunther. Jake Dennis fought against Jehan Daruvala to take sixth spot. Nikita Mazepin, Joey Mawson, Harrison Newey and Ralf Aron completed the top 10.
After three Silverstone’s races, Joel Eriksson leads the championship standings with 55 points. Callum Ilott is second, with 43 points on his account, one more than Lando Norris. The next championship round is scheduled for April 29-30 at Monza.
