Jann Mardenborough Grabs Another GP3 Podium
Jann Mardenborough had another successful weekend in the GP3 Series, taking a podium finish at the Hungarian round of the championship. The young Brit had to work hard in Saturday’s race – he qualified in 13th place after a red flag stopped his fastest run – but he got stuck in and took a very creditable seventh. This put him on the front row of the grid for race two on Sunday.
“I didn’t get as good a start as yesterday and Patrick (Niederhauser) got the jump on me,” explained Jann. “I settled in to third place and managed to hold onto it for the full race, despite the pace not being as good as yesterday.
“It’s great to get a podium, and of course last week’s win, which takes me into the summer break with lots of new points. This also builds my confidence for the next round at Spa so I can’t wait for that to come around now.”
