László Tóth reached his best result in FIA Formula 3 so far on the second race of the weekend in Zandvoort as he did a great catch-up during the last two laps and finished 16th starting from P25.
Campos Racing’s 21 years old hungarian driver made a good re-start after the second Safety Car-phase of the race and managed to climb up from P24 to P19 on the penultimate lap. Then he made two more overtakes, finishing on P17, but after a late penalty for Filip Ugran, Tóth officially ended the race on P16.
„As the Safety Car went to the box I saw that the same chaos will happen as it was after the start. Therefore I decided to approach the situation in a different way and try to gain advantage of it. This was going to work and I was able to make some nice overtakes. I’m happy about this last two laps, it was a good feeling to be able to do such kind of catch-up” – said Tóth after the race.
The FIA Formula 3 season finishes in Sochi on 24-26 September.
