The European F.3 Championship is ready to go back underway in the spectacular frame of the famed Norisring race track, a wide and extremely fast street course in downtown Nurnberg. The German circuit has given Prema great memories and will be now welcoming the 5th round of the 2012 series. The Italian squad, directed by Team Principal Angelo Rosin, will field again four Mercedes-powered Dallaras. 

“On this particular racetrack – explained Rosin – we have always achieved good results in the past. But our style is to avoid any spectacular announcements, just work hard and then draw the conclusions when the checkered flag of Race 3 falls.
"Of course, we're doing pretty well with Marciello, the revelation of the season so far, with the experienced Juncadella and with Lewis and rookie driver Muller. But that doesn't mean anything at this point because we know that in motorsports things can change pretty quickly. We need to stay focused: our opponents are definitely not resting on a beach…"

In the European Championship standings, Marciello is currently leading with 137 points followed by Juncadella (115). The Euro Series, which does not include the rounds at Pau and Spa-Francorchamps, is currently led by Juncadella (109 points) in front of Marciello (103).
