Enaam Ahmed, James Pull and Toby Sowery were the top three drivers in the second BRDC British F3 race at Spa Francorchamps. Here's what the trio had to say after the race:

WINNER, Enaam Ahmed:
"It was a mega race, I can't believe I managed to win it. My team manager Sam told me that I didn't need to win the race and to just get some points, but as soon as I knew I had the pace and I was catching the guys in front and I was overtaking without losing any time, I was thinking I could really win it. I was catching James and I'm not sure what happened but I was so fast in that race and I couldn't believe it.

"I was lighting up the middle sector and I was ragging it really hard there and it felt as if I was going sideways on nearly every corner and I was catching him really quickly. As I had new tyres I knew I could use that grip and the car was mega. 

"I'm on pole for race three now, and as long as I don't mess up turn one I think I will be OK!"


P2, James Pull:
"It was a shame not to win but second is still really good. To be honest, starting from where I was yesterday, I didn't really expect to be here anyway. But I managed to do pretty well yesterday in race one and to lead the majority of this race and then lose it in the last couple of laps is definitely a big shame for me, especially as I still haven't got a first win yet, but Enaam drove amazingly, his pace was out of this world and as soon as he passed Cameron [Das], I knew that he would be chasing me down. I tried to defend, but once he got a big tow down the Kemmel straight I couldn't really do anything from there.

"I really gave it my all, but it just wasn't enough. After qualifying yesterday, I really didn't expect to be here so it's still a good result obviously but it does hurt to have led the race for so long!"


P3, Toby Sowery:
"The first lap was entertaining, fighting with a lot of reverse grid drivers and managed to get a few places. I got into a bit of a rhythm, saw Enaam was closing and he overtook me and drove into the distance. I managed to gt Das three quarters of the way through the race and other than that it was a clear track.

"Race three is our last opportunity to achive what we had hoped we could heading into the weekend. The first lap is always challenging, especially around here. We're not on pole, which could be a good thing as Enaam found out in race one and we'll see how it goes."
