An incredible performance by young Red Bull driver Antontio Felix da Costa today. In a wet qualifying session for an F3 Cup race at Snetterton he took pole position by nine seconds!
Da Costa is competing in the race so that he will be eligible to participate in the Macau Grand Prix. He took pole by 9.115s from Chris Dittman, followed by Kevin Korjus – the latter, like Da Costa, preparing for Macau.
And more on Da Costa here:
9 seconds is the type of margin we haven’t seen in any series for a long time on a track that short… Incredible!
I’m getting very excited about this guy! along with Robin Frijns of course.
That is pretty outstanding, reminiscent of Gilles Villeneuve at Watkins Glen in 1979 by the sounds of it!
9 seconds, holy mother of god :o
That is amazing. What a effort by Da Costa. He is starting to look like THE outstanding talent outside of F1. This guy is making a lot of noise and the F1 community will have to sit up and see this like we have
Oh he’s great! This guy make sme dream about a portuguese title in Formula 1!
Couldn’t help noticing a guy called Louis Hamilton-Smith in P4…
If ever there was a clearer sign of da Costa’s potential, this is it. Taking pole by a margin of 9 seconds… unthinkable.
I have to laugh at the title of the article: “Da Costa grabs pole but Dittmann shines”.
How, exactly, did Dittmann shine when da Costa took pole by nine seconds?
What makes it more impressive, is the fact that is was Snetterton: only 8 corners or so, so how did he find nine seconds there?
@andae23 – Snetterton got an upgrade last year:
@prisoner-monkeys – I was going to say the same thing! Except Da Costa, nobody shone if they were beaten by 9 seconds!
A few struggling to meet the 107% rule there!
and a funny headline
