Caldarelli keeps fighting at the top at Dijon

Andrea Caldarelli continued to show impressive improvement in the latest
round of the Formula 3 Euro Series at Dijon. The Italian driver ended up
once again into the top-5 , almost matching the podium finish scored in the
past round at Barcelona. Caldarelli, part of the Toyota Driver Program, clocked
the 5th fastest lap in Qualifying, taking off from Row 3. He drove a
clean race through the full distance, ending up in 4th.
On Race 2, he didn't make it to the finish after being involved in a spin by
Valtteri Bottas. Despite he managed to avoid the backup, he was hit by the
car of Shaaban. "I managed to confirm the good moment of form showed
with the podium I scored at Barcelona. I also proved that my front row start
wasn't a case, but the result of a great teamwork that brought our Dallara-
Mercedes to the next level. On my side, I feel great to be finally racing in
the top pack. I've always been confident in myself, despite we ended up at
the back for several reasons. The final round of the 2009 Euro Series will be
starting at Hockenheim in a two-week time, and it would be nice to add
another good result to my toll"
