Volkswagen’s Motorsport Director Kris Nissen said that the win was, “A positive start to the Formula 3 weekend for Volkswagen. Edoardo Mortara showed a great performance at Valencia and made no mistakes even under the initial pressure. He took the momentum from the past races to this round and has so far consistently clinched podium results. This victory is a well-deserved reward.”
After setting the fastest qualifying time, Mortara stayed in front leading the 4.005 km race to the checkered flag. This was the Italian’s first pole position in the F3 Euro Series and his second win of the season which places him in the championship lead.
