The revamped Austrian track of Zeltweg, now known as the Red Bull Ring, will host the fourth round of the 2011 F.3 Euro Series. For the first time this season, Prema Powerteam will field three Mercedes-powered Dallaras as Daniel Juncadella and Roberto Mehri will be partnered by Gianmarco Raimondo, who had already lined-up in the championship this season.


Mehri is currently leading in standings with 127 points, followed by Marco Wittmann at 104. After having scored some sensational results in the first two round of the season (5 wins in 6 races), Prema didn't win at Zandvoort, but Mehri managed to score some valuable points. The Castellon-based racer scored points finishes in all 9 races entered so far. Juncadella, who left Le Castellet as the championship leader, suffered from a tough break at Zandvoort, and is now standing in 5th with 88 points.


René Rosin - Team Manager

"The Red Bull Ring will be pretty much an unknown factor for us, as well as an exciting and interesting challenge. We're all starting from the same level and the initial set-up guesses will be key in order to stay within the front rows of the grid. Prema kept itself in practice by entering the F.3 International Trophy race at  Pau, and we ended up being among the top stars of the weekend. I'm relying on our drivers Juncadella and Mehri and I know that they already left Zandvoort behind. I'm equally sure that we'll be fighting for wins again at the Red Bull Ring. In addition to that, we will add a third car for Raimondo, who is coming from the F.3 Italia championship with a good racing background, and really determined to grow up with us..."
