Volkswagen happy with progress

Volkswagen believe that their performance at Nogaro last weekend shows the progress they are making with their Formula Three engine

Maximilian Gotz equalled his best qualifying result from the Nurburgring with another eighth place, and although he was unable to score any points during the weekend, he was happy to finish just six seconds behind race two winner Sebastien Buemi on Sunday.

The RC Motorsport driver said: "The car felt really good during qualifying, and in the race, I was one of the few drivers in a position to overtake.

"That shows the good work that's gone into the car, particularly from the Volkswagen engine."

Volkswagen's director of motorsport Kris Nissen added that he believes the engine has improved since it made its debut one month ago at the Nurburgring.

"The results in Nogaro underline the engine's positive performance curve," said Nissen.

"The fast individual laps during qualifying, as well as the speed over the course of an entire race, prove that we've been moving in the right direction with this engine from the very beginning."
