Zane takes second F3 victory
(F3)-Zane Maloney claimed a second victory of his rookie Formula 3 season with an impressive display around the Circuit Zandvoort. Losing the lead on the opening lap to Victor Martins, the Trident driver bided his time to pounce and saw off late Safety Car drama and take the chequered flag first.
Martins made sure the title fight would go down to the wire as the ART Grand Prix driver kept himself out of trouble to secure the 18 points on offer in second and regain the Championship lead, as Franco Colapinto made a return to the podium in third.
Roman Stanek brought home another decent haul of points in fourth ahead of Isack Hadjar. Crawford recovered from a costly error to finish sixth ahead of Caio Collet and Sebastian Montoya, who collected two points finishes in his debut weekend, while Jonny Edgar took ninth.
Oliver Bearman bulldozed his way up the order after a poor getaway to take the final points-paying position in 10th, meanwhile, his PREMA Racing teammate Arthur Leclerc could only manage to recover up to 14th.
“Obviously we were able to get the win in the Feature Race. Two in a row, so yeah feels amazing! The team has again given me a great car every single time I go out. Let’s keep the momentum going and can’t wait for Monza–the team’s home race,” said Maloney in a post-race interview.
