The break between rounds saw the team putting a lot of effort into resolving their power deficit, however delays in the arrival of newly imported parts have prevented their objectives from being achieved. This is not the ideal situation for Marx to find himself in ahead of his visit to the fastest circuit on calendar.

Another factor to contend with, will be the severe tyre degradation expected at the circuit. This could well play into Marx’ hands: “We know we will be down on power at circuit where straight line speed will be crucial. If we can conserve the tyres during the early part of the day, we may well be in the running for the second race. It is not an ideal strategy to work on, but we have to play the hand that we’ve been dealt here and we always try to make the best of any situation.”

Due to an endurance race which will also farm part of the weekend’s programme, the Qualifying session for Round 3 will take place on Friday afternoon with the two points-scoring 10-lap races scheduled for Saturday at 10:00 and 13:45 respectively..
