Point-scoring position for Sandy Stuvik at the Italian Grand Prix

Round 6 of the GP3 Series took place at the Cathedral of Speed: Monza, situated under an hour away from the city of Milan in Italy. After a disappointing weekend at Spa, Sandy was looking for improvements to his results. Sandy as usual races for Singha Corporation, The Pizza Company, Dacon Inspection Services, the Tourism Authority of Thailand, the Royal Automobile Association of Thailand, and the Sports Authority of Thailand.

Qualifying: P14 - 1.52.095

P1 Luca Ghiotto - 1.50.007

Stuvik claimed 14th place in the wet conditions of qualifying on Saturday morning. In the middle of the pack, Sandy would have to make use of Monza's long straights for overtaking to gain positions. "It was our first real wet session with this car this season so it was something new for me. I lost quite a lot of time in 2 corners which prevented a top-ten finish, but we know where to improve should it be wet again."

Race 1: P11 

P1 Emil Bernstorff

Race 1 took place under a sunny Monza circuit. Sandy finished his race only one position higher than he started from, there was a lot of change of position towards the end of the race and unfortunately the Thai driver couldn't progress how he wanted to. At the end Sandy’s position has been changed to 11st place after two drivers got penalty. Sandy said "We've made some changes to the car and most of these changes helped us improve were we wanted, and in some areas too much. Now we know what to do for the next race tomorrow."

Race 2: P8

P1 Marvin Kirchhofer

Race 2 took place Sunday morning. With some tweaks to the set-up of Sandy's Status GP GP3 car, the Thai driver was eager to gain some positions. With a decent start Sandy could start picking away at his opponents as the race went on, and eventually finished in 8th position. "I'm decently satisfied with the race today, there were some hinderances during the race which prevented me from moving further up the grid, but those re things I will learn and try to improve for our next round. I feel we've made improvements to the car that suit me and I'm looking forward to where this brings us."

The next race will take place at the circuit of Sochi, on Russia's Adriatic coast on the 9-11 October. The GP3 Series now waves goodbye to Europe, and the next few races feature circuits lesser-known to most drivers, this should create a challenge for all the drivers as we head into the final part of the season.
