Arjun Maini secured two top 10 finishes in the second and third races of round 3 of the FIA F3 European Championship in Pau, France, for his first points of the season.
“Pau is a very difficult circuit as it is a street circuit and is extremely tight with no scope for errors,” the young Indian driver with ThreeBond with T-Sport Racing team was quoted as saying in a press release.
Race 1 saw Maini, who is supported by JK Tyre, start 7th as opposed to his original starting position of 11th after a few drivers above the Indian were served penalties and pushed down the order. A stalled start in Race 1 caused him to move down the order and finish 18th in the race, according to the release.
Race 2 saw him start 16th but turn it around to finish 10th and secure his first points of the season. Race 3 saw Maini finish a place higher than in the second race after starting 18th.
The next round will be held at the Red Bull Ring in Austria between May 20 and 22.
