Andrea Caldarelli still suffering at Oschersleben

05-08-2009

Andrea Caldarelli continued to face hard luck in the 2009 Formula 3 Euro Series.
The driver from Pescara, part of the Toyota Driver Program, entered the
Oschersleben round of the championship with his regular team, SG Formula,
showing good skills in practice and qualifying.
On Race 1, he was forced to take off at the back after stalling on the grid. In the
meantime the car's overall performance started to fade dramatically and, after
starting from the last spot on Race 2, he came home 4 laps down. The next
round of the Formula 3 Euro Series will be once again hosted in Germany, at the
Nurburgring.
"The race at Oschersleben didnt' go as we expected. Until Qualifying, we
thought we could really make a difference. I managed to hit a spot on row 5,
and I was really looking forward to improve further during the race. After I stalled
on the grid of Race 1, we elected to use Race 2 as a test, but as track groove
increased, our car started to drive worse. Now we'll have a test session in
order to find new solutions before the race at the Nurburgring".
