Niko Kari ended his season with podium!
Niko Kari was able to end his Formula 3 season with high note. The Flying Finn climbed up to the podium at Russia.
Kari was on strong form the whole weekend. At qualifying Kari was 4th fastest, the best outside the all-conquering Prema.
Feature race was a strong showcase of Kari’s talent. For a brief moment Trident driver lead the race, but two Prema’s were able to maximize their potential and overtook the Finn. Nevertheless, third place was a great result and well deserved.
Kari’s great weekend was supplemented by fine fifth place finish in Sunday’s sprint race. A fine bunch of points helped Kari to climb up in the standings.
Although Sochi was a great weekend for Kari, Finn admit the whole season was a bit of a dissapointment.
– There were too many bad race weekends, when we had problems and points were out of the question. It’s a shame, since we had the pace to be much higher, Kari says.
Two podiums and 36 points shows that when everything is working, Kari is one of the fastest on the grid.
Niko Kari would like to thank Trident team, all the partners and supporters for this season!
