Raffaele Marciello sure 2012 Euro F3 title slip won't be repeated

Raffaele Marciello Euro F3 2013Ferrari protege Raffaele Marciello believes that the experience gained in last year's Formula 3 European Championship will prevent him from missing out on the title again.

The Prema Powerteam driver won twice at Hockenheim last weekend to take his tally for the season to five and increase his championship advantage over Mucke Motorsport's Felix Rosenqvist to 71.5 points.

He is determined not to throw his advantage away and move towards the end-of-season prize of a Ferrari Formula 1 test.

"I've got a lot more experience now," he told AUTOSPORT. "I was only 18 this time last year and while I was winning, I still had to learn a lot.

"Last year I was just obsessed with winning. Now I'm taking a different approach.

"If I can win then I will try, but if I have the choice between finishing second or third and getting good points, or going for a stupid overtake, then I'll take the points."

Marciello led the standings in both the European championship and the now-defunct Euro Series at this stage last season after impressing with double victories at Pau and Brands Hatch.

But his season lost momentum during the summer, a scenario the Italian is keen not to repeat.

Raffaele Marciello Euro F3 2013"Last year went bad because of two bad weekends in the summer," he told AUTOSPORT.

"At the Nurburgring I got stuck in traffic when I had my new tyres in qualifying - it was on the short circuit - and just never recovered in the races.

"And at Zandvoort I was in a couple of crashes that were not my fault."

The series continues at Brands Hatch next weekend.
