One month after the last race held in Holland, the European F.3 circus is back for the penultimate round of the 2012 series at Valencia. Prema Powerteam will make their return on the same racetrack that enabled them to celebrate the 2011 title on last 2nd of October. The aim is to repeat the same successful result. 

Daniel Juncadella and Raffaele Marciello (the Italian is part of the Ferrari Driver Academy), are holding a 1-2 lead in the FIA European Championship aboard their Mercedes-powered Dallaras and they can count on a comfortable margin over Sainz. In the Euro Series standings (which do not include the points scored at Pau and Spa-Francorchamps), Juncadella leads with a 20-point advantage on Wehrlein. 

At Valencia, the two remaining Prema men Michael Lewis and Sven Muller will try to keep their momentum high as they hope to get back onto the podium and stay into the leading pack.
