On friday the 18th of April 2014 the Formula Renault 1.6 season started in the dunes of Zandvoort.
The weather was nice and the sun was shining. Before the first test session I felt quite comfortable and as soon as the session started I pushed – in the end I was in the first position. So the first test session of the season was won by me.
On saturday was the qualifying session. In qualifying I finished 4th for the first race and 3rd for the second race. I was sure it was a good begin!
We had one day off to relax at easter-sunday which we used to do some work.
Finally at easter-monday the racing started. I was looking forward to the first race of the season. In the first race I could hold the 4th position which was good and I took some important points with me.
In the second race I even had a better place to start which was the 3rd. At the start I was struggling with the clutch and lost some positions. So in the end I was on the 8th position – could have been better but there are 12 races to go in the rest of the season.
Over all it was a good first weekend where I improved myself and gained a lot of experience.
So let’s work hard for the next race which will be in Spa-Francorchamps on the 1st of June!
