An amazing battle between two future champions in junior category!16th October 2011, 15:39 at 3:39 pm #183014Keith CollantineKeymaster
@ritvik-vinodkumar Great video. This is the second race at the Eurospeedway Lausitz that year. Hamilton was in his second year in F3, Vettel his first.
Hamilton went on to pass van der Garde to win the race – he won an astonishing 15 out of 20 races that year, and was disqualified for a technical infringement after winning a further one ‘on the track’.
The following year Hamilton progressed to GP2 and Vettel finished runner-up in the F3 Euroseries to his new team mate – Paul di Resta.16th October 2011, 15:55 at 3:55 pm #18301516th October 2011, 16:02 at 4:02 pm #183016AnonymousInactive
I love seeing these battles years later – looking at the drivers who went on to become greats, and those who became nothing is incredible, as it makes you wonder who of the current drivers in feeder series will become world champions.
These are the standings of that season.16th October 2011, 16:20 at 4:20 pm #183017matt90Participant
So unlucky for Di Resta to get a better result than Vettel then get sidelined out of single seaters. It’s interesting to wonder would could have happened if he hadn’t had to go to DTM. Then again, I think the same about Senna and where he might be if he hadn’t spent 10 years out of racing. Senna could well prove to be a great driver, but then there will always be the thought that he could be even better, as he’ll always be down 10 years experience on what he could have.
Thanks for the video, was great to see that.16th October 2011, 16:20 at 4:20 pm #183018Bleeps_and_TweaksParticipant

Brilliant driving from both of them there, pity Hamilton cant seem to dice it like that this season.16th October 2011, 22:37 at 10:37 pm #183020matt90Participant
Not all the time, but his duel with Webber was pretty spectacular.16th October 2011, 23:54 at 11:54 pm #183021electroliteParticipant
This is quality! The cars kinda look like 2009 F1 cars as well.17th October 2011, 1:20 at 1:20 am #183022mwoerneMember
No, it was his second season. He only spent two seasons in F3. Just hop on wikipedia, mate17th October 2011, 1:56 at 1:56 am #183023wasiF1Participant
I never knew this two crossed road together before they came in F1.Amazing.17th October 2011, 3:12 at 3:12 am #183024raymondu999Participant17th October 2011, 8:54 at 8:54 am #183025TimGParticipant
Kubica, Di Resta plus Adrian Sutil (Hamilton’s then team mate at ASM) and Lucas Di Grassi.
The cars were all Dallara F305s but the F3 Euroseries wasn’t and isn’t a spec formula – the teams are free to develop the chassis and there’s a free choice of engine supplier (teams used Mercedes, Opel, Toyota and Mugen-Honda in 2005). Not intending to detract from Hamilton’s domination of the year, but he was driving for the then dominant ASM team.18th October 2011, 8:45 at 8:45 am #183026IcthyesParticipant
Amazing stuff!20th October 2011, 16:17 at 4:17 pm #183027AnonymousInactive
Brunno Senna was never a promise. Please Renault is very badly served Drivers wise they need Kubica, Kubica was a young star Senna wasnt
