Rockingham BF3: Collard dominates Race 3 to extend championship lead
Ricky Collard extended his championship lead, after winning the final race of the Rockingham weekend, starting from second row of the grid. The Carlin driver made a superb start taking polestitter Lando Norris and front-row starter Matheus Leist, going into Turn 1.
Not only Norris lost his lead to Collard, the British driver dropped back behind Leist, as the Brazilian slotted himself into second.
A brief safety car period after the accident between Krishnaraaj Mahadik and Eugene Denyssen at Yentwood brought the field together, but Collard got a perfect getaway at the restart.
The Carlin driver, then, maintained a crucial gap to take his maiden win and also extended his lead in the championship.
