Raffaele Marciello

Saturday Night Fever

Maranello, 17 October – As from tomorrow, the final round of the FIA European Formula 3 championship gets underway at Hockenheim, just five days on from the Vallelunga round. For Raffaele Marciello it’s a time of high tension as he comes to the German track leading the championship on 434.5 points, 45.5 ahead of Felix Rosenqvist. It means that the Ferrari Driver Academy student will not be aiming for victory at all costs. “The results from Vallelunga have given me a good lead in the classification, which means I can tackle the three races at Hockenheim without the obligation of winning,” said Marciello. “My aim is to increase my points tally and keep a close eye on Rosenqvist.” In theory, Marciello could clinch the title after Saturday’s two races. “Having led the classification from the first race of the season, I’d like to close down the title early and have an enjoyable Saturday night,” added the 19 year old. “But I know that, in order to reach this goal, I will need to concentrate hard and above all, avoid making any mistakes. Over the season we have seen a great swing in the results which no driver has escaped, so I don’t think we can take anything for granted.” When he last raced in Hockenheim, back in the spring, Marciello did very well, going home with two wins and a third place. “I like this track,” confirms Lello, as he is known. “And even if it should be cooler than last time, I don’t think that will affect the performance of my car. Over the course of the season, we have gone well in all conditions, rain included. Tomorrow starts with two free practice sessions, followed by two qualifying runs. There are two races on Saturday, with the final race of 2013 taking place on Sunday morning.
