Macau F-3 Grand Prix

24 November 1998

Brazilian driver Ricardo Mauricio was second in the Macau F-3 GP, in one
of the tightest finishes ever in motor racing.

Scot driver Peter Dumbreck won the Macau F-3 Grand Prix with 0s003 of
advantage over brazilian Ricardo Mauricio, that had his first race with
Paul Stewart Racing.

"For the first time I had a good car" said Mauricio, while climbing out
of the car after race finish.

Enrique Bernoldi, also from Brazil, finished 3rd and showed that the new
brazilian generation is very good.

Both drivers, Ricardo Mauricio and Enrique Bernoldi, will be in F-1
Junior next season, and expect doing a good job to reach F-1 in 2000.

Luciano Burti that race for Paul Stewart Racing, had problemas in
qualifying and started 24th, but after the first leg was already 10th,
and on the second leg was already in 4th place, when misjudged Peter
Dumbreck and crashed into the barrier. Burti will do another F-3 season
in England with Paul Stewart Racing.

"I liked the Guia circuit a lot, and even if I am upset after losing in
this way, I am very happy to show all that with a good car, I can set
the pace" said Mauricio.
