Third for Lawson in FIA F3 at Silverstone

Logan Sargeant’s first ever FIA Formula 3 win was a big one. The American made it second time lucky from pole, coolly closing out a lights-to-flag win at Silverstone to take the Championship lead from teammate Oscar Piastri.

The PREMA racer had failed to convert pole to victory in the previous round – finishing third – but never looked in danger of suffering from the same fate this time around, finishing 1.5s ahead of the much-improved HWA RACELAB of Jake Hughes.

Liam Lawson brushed off a difficult start to the race to hang on to a podium place and keep his own Championship hopes alive.

Piastri may have lost the Championship lead, but the Australian will at least be satisfied to have made up four places from 11th, having retired from Qualifying early with mechanical issues on Friday.
