Shooting for a strong weekend at Silverstone

With barely time to catch his breath, Devlin heads to Silverstone (UK) for the fourth round of the 2018 GP3 series this weekend (6th - 8th July), and his first double header weekend since 2016, after a promising start to his campaign in Austria last weekend.

The Canadian-Italian protege arrived at the previous round with no prior testing, his first ever taste of GP3 happening during the Friday practice session. Adapting extremely quickly, despite having his qualifying efforts disrupted by a red-flag, he put in a strong performance in both races. Making 5 places up during the first race and crossing the line just shy of the points in 11th in the latter.

Devlin’s next challenge will be at the home of British Motorsport, Silverstone Circuit in Northamptonshire as part of the Formula 1 British Grand Prix support package. With fast high speed corners, Silverstone is a driver favourite for many, and as the scene of Devlin’s first double podium weekend in Euroformula Open holds found memories for the rookie.

“I’m looking forward to Silverstone, it’s a much longer lap and a track I know well, I think we have the potential to be strong. We’ll be using a different compound of tyre this weekend from Red Bull but I’m sure I’ll adapt quickly And with a clean qualifying session I’m sure we’ll be able to show more or less where we stand”
