Parente Wraps up Title with Win

Alvaro Parente wrapped up the British Formula Three Championship title when he took the second British F3 race at the Nurburgring in Germany today

Parente Wraps up Title with Win

The Portuguese Carlin Motorsport driver had only qualified third, but he made a great start and slipped past both the Double R cars of Bruno Senna and Dan Clarke.

Senna made Parente's life extremely difficult for the rest of the race. The Brazilian looked to have the quicker car, but it would have taken a mistake for Parente to allow Senna a way past. Parente very rarely errs, and again failed to do so.

Clarke kept the lead pair in close sight without ever really joining the battle. Mike Conway was a relatively distant fourth, well ahead of Charlie Kimball. The American was Parente's only possible points competition heading into the race, but can now do no better than second.
