Another weekend to forget for Andrea Caldarelli at Norisring

Another weekend to forget for Andrea Caldarelli at Norisring

30-06-2009

Andrea Caldarelli had to face another terribly complicated weekend at
Norisring, in the third round of the 2009 Formula 3 Euro Series. On the
fast streetcourse of Nurnberg, the driver from Pescara brought his SG
Formula Dallara to the 17th place, scoring his best personal result of the
year. "And I could have even done better - explained Andrea - as I was slowed
down by yellow flags in what was becoming my best laps".
Unfortunately, it's been the only positive note of the weekend for
Caldarelli, as on Race 1 he was unable to get to the starting grid due to a
drive shaft failure. He made it to the track one lap down, with zero chances
to recover. On Race 2, Andrea was involved in a multi-car contact caused
by other drivers at lap 4. He managed to avoid the backup but got
stalled, and his car was taken away by the stewards. "We had another
bad weekend. I hope we'll come out of this dark tunnel and start to leave
our mark soon."
