Double R chasing Silverstone podium

1 January 1901

Raikkonen Robertson Racing team principal Anthony Hieatt says he is looking for podium finishes from his team in the latest rounds of the British F3 International Series, which will take place at Silverstone tomorrow.

The team heads back to British soil as a busy period for the series continues, with the Silverstone round coming in the middle of races in Europe at Spa, Zolder and Bucharest.

Atte Mustonen in particular will be looking to build on his result last weekend in the F3 Masters where he secured a solid sixth place finish despite starting well down the order. The Finn currently leads the Double R challenge on the title in fifth place overall and he said he was looking forward to the weekend.

"I like Silverstone, it's a nice track and having finished third there last year I know we can be very competitive," he said. "There isn't much time to find the best set up due to a short race weekend, but I think we have enough knowledge of the circuit for that not to be a problem.”

Henry Arundel will look to build on his impressive run at Zolder, where he made up 20 places in the race, while John Martin will also look to get back on form after his suffered disappointment when a tyre gamble in Belgium failed to pay off. The team will also welcome a new face for the weekend as Brazilian A1GP racer Clemente Faria Jr comes into the driving squad for the weekend.

"Once again this will be a new circuit for Henry while John and Atte raced here last year," Hiett said. "We've got a good record at Silverstone, we won both races in 2006 and Atte finished on the podium here last year. I'm confident that we will be able to get drivers on the podium again this weekend."
