The Prema / Theodore Racing team made their way back to victory in the ADAC Formula 4 championship this weekend. The German series lined-up for the sixth round of the season at the Nurburgring, the historical venue located amid the Eifel forests.
After securing pole position in qualifying, Mick Schumacher cruised to a brilliant win in race 1. The young German led the pack from start to finish, collecting an extremely valuable result in order to continue in his championship chase. The highly-competitive squad also captured some positive results with Juri Vips and Juan Manuel Correa, who ended up fifth and sixth respectively.
Vips put in a solid drive in race 2 to finish on the podium in second place with team-mate Correa two places back in fourth. In race three, the team brought home two more podium finishes with Schumacher ending up second, and Vips finishing third.
With two rounds still to go, Schumacher holds second place in the standings with 251 points, while Correa and Vips are second and third respectively in the rookie competition. Prema / Theodore Racing sit second in the team standings.
The next round for the ADAC Formula 4 Championship will be on the 20th and 21st of August at Zandvoort.
# 29 – Mick Schumacher
“Mixed feelings for me after the Nürburgring weekend – happy after the victory in race 1, disappointed after race 2, good points with P2 in race 3. I look forward to more fighting and great competition in the last two German championship events.”
# 44 – Juri Vips
“It was a really positive weekend, we scored 2 podiums along with some really good points while being consistently on top. We will try to carry the momentum at Zandvoort in 2 weeks”.
# 68 – Juan Manuel Correa
“The weekend seemed to be a promising chance to score some solid points in the championship, but a stall at the start of race 3 deprived us of the chance to bring home a triple points finish. The pace was very good all weekend, but we just weren’t able to capitalize in the races. Now it’s time to take a small break and line-up refreshed at Zandvoort.”
