Pommer hones in on runner-up spot

Second F2 win reignites German’s championship hopes

Markus Pommer is confident he can compete for the runner-up spot in the 2012 FIA Formula Two Championship after picking up his second win of the season at Paul Ricard last time out.

The 21-year-old German added to his maiden victory at Spa earlier this year with a lights-to-flag win at the sun-soaked French venue to move up to fourth in the drivers' standings. That result now means he lies just three points adrift of Christopher Zanella ahead of him and only 14 points shy of second-place Mathéo Tuscher.

"I'm now in a position to fight for the second position in the championship," said Pommer who remains one of only two drivers to have scored points in every race so far this season. "P1 one is perhaps going to be too hard but I'm now back in the fight for P2. It's really tight for the points in second place so we'll have to see what happens and how things work out in Hungary."

Pommer now hopes to continue his strong form for the next F2 rounds which take place at the Hungaroring in Budapest from 7-9 September with official testing being held beforehand. Full coverage of the weekend, including live streaming, will be available on www.formulatwo.com
