Seb Morris endured a frustrating start to his GP3 season, crashing out of race one and finishing at the back in the second in Barcelona.
The Status Grand Prix driver called himself a ‘dark horse’ ahead of the weekend at the Circuit de Catalunya after an impressing during the final two-day test in Spain.
Morris couldn’t convert the promise to results, though.
On his official website, he said: “It’s been a tough weekend for us. As a rookie, I’ve certainly learnt a lot following an unfortunate day. The team has done a great job to put the car back together to the way it was [for the second race], but I feel there may have been a small issue with the front left.
“Things can only get better for the next round.”

That’s an understatement.
After qualifying 20th out of 24, the 19-year-old was involved in an incident with Ralph Boschung at turn 10, forcing both drivers to retire from the race. Then, in the second race, he finished last.

“I’m motivated and the team are behind me so I’m looking forward to getting back out on track already,” he said.
