Trident’s David Schumacher collected his maiden F3 win with a consistent lead throughout Austria’s 24 laps long race.

David Schumacher completed his quest for the day to take home the first-place trophy as he started the race in the highest place from the grid with Hitech’s Roman Stanek and ART’s Juan Manuel Correa joining him up in front.

Frederik Vesti and Dennis Hauger earned their second and third podium, respectively, after an incredible drive from the two drivers in a chaotic race.

Schumacher managed to hold on to his place as the race leader without any switch to the driver behind him, but as the battle happened, Logan Sargeant and Tjimen Van Der Helm were the first two retirements from the second race of the day.

Just 30 minutes before the event started, Logan Sargeant had to give away his points from winning third place from Race 1 as he dropped a few positions back to 15th due to track limits.

The safety car got released at the end of lap 5, right in time, where Jak Crawford started his battle to snatch Roman Stanek’s position in the second place. Still, it didn’t last for a long time as the American driver appeared to have problems that stopped him from scoring a podium on Red Bull’s home soil.

Stanek received another attack from Victor Martins in trying to get past the Czech driver running in P2, but again Martins faced another problem that cost him the chances of winning a podium in Austria as ART’s Frederik Vesti successfully clinched into second place.

Roman Stanek ended the day in fourth fastest for Hitech securing his best race finish of the season with Carlin’s Jonny Edgar in fifth.

With just three laps until the race is over, Caio Collet received a five-second penalty for causing another incident involving Enzo Fittipaldi in action, opening the door for PREMA Racing’s Arthur Leclerc to gain 19 positions in total.

Arthur Leclerc managed to deliver a brilliant drive from him as he finished in sixth fastest after starting the race from the 27th position ahead of Trident’s Jack Doohan in seventh and Enzo Fittipaldi in eighth fastest for Charouz Racing System.

Olli Caldwell finished in ninth fastest for the second PREMA Racing’s car, with Jenzer Motorsport’s rookie Johnathan Hoggard rounded out the top 10 for the final result of Race 2.

The last race of Round 3 will start at 11:05 AM local time in Austria, with the starting grid from Friday’s qualifying session.
