The Formula 2 DAMS team had a rollercoaster weekend at Mugello…

Bumping into old friends in high places:

 

A solid P1 for new boy, Jüri Vips, and a P5 for Dan Ticktum in Free Practice Friday:

 

 

Ticktum pulls it out of the bag for the DAMS team in Qualifying:

🇬🇧 SO CLOSE!! 0.005s away from pole but @dan_ticktum starts the Feature Race from the front row! A best F2 qualifying for @juri_vips as well! – 🇫🇷 Cinq millièmes de seconde ! C'est ce qui sépare Dan Ticktum de la pole et il prendra demain le départ de la Manche Principale depuis la première ligne. Et un septième chrono très prometteur pour Jüri Vips. – DT – P2 JV – P7 – 📸 @dutchphotoagency . . . #F2 #FIAF2 #Formula2 #FIAFormula2 #TuscanGP #Mugello #MugelloCircuit #Tuscany #Italy #Motorsport #Motorsports #Race #Racing #RaceCar #BecauseRaceCar #RaceTrack #DAMS #AllezLesBleus #Qualifying #RoadToF1 #StarsOfTomorrow #SingleSeater #SingleSeaterRacing #CircuitRacing #Instaracing #Motorracing #Instasport #Sport #Speed #MotorsportPhotography

The pendulum swings for Ticktum as his P3 is cruelly stolen.

 

 

However, Vips’s P7 finish in the Feature Race means a front row for the Formula 2 Sprint Race. Contrasting opinions from team and driver:

🇬🇧 Great drive from @juri_vips to earn his first points in @fiaf2championship and a front row start in tomorrow's Sprint Race. Unfortunately, a badly timed safety car and an incident on the restart denied @dan_ticktum a potential shot at the podium. – 🇫🇷 Belle performance de Jüri Vips qui marque ses premiers points en F2 et s’élancera demain matin depuis la première ligne sur la grille de départ de la Course Sprint. Le mauvais timing de l’entrée en piste de la Voiture de Sécurité et un incident lorsque la course est relancée privent Dan d’une place sur le podium. – JV – P7 DT – P17 – 📸 @dutchphotoagency . . . #F2 #FIAF2 #Formula2 #FIAFormula2 #TuscanGP #Mugello #MugelloCircuit #Tuscany #Italy #Motorsport #Motorsports #Race #Racing #RaceCar #BecauseRaceCar #RaceTrack #DAMS #AllezLesBleus #RoadToF1 #StarsOfTomorrow #SingleSeater #SingleSeaterRacing #CircuitRacing #Instaracing #Motorracing #Instasport #Sport #Speed #MotorsportPhotography

Surprise podium for Vips!

 

 

And just when we thought we were waving goodbye to the reserve driver…

 

 

… it’s great news for Vips fans!

The Estonian will have another chance to shine in Sochi, as it’s been confirmed he will continue to drive the No1 DAMS car for the injured Sean Gelael.

 

 

 

We here at insideF2 are continuing to send our best wishes to you, Sean!
