FIA announces nominees for 2015 Action of the Year award

For the ‪2015 FIA Action of the Year award, motor sport fans around the world can watch and vote for their favourite action from the ‪FIA‬’s Championships this year. The clip nominated for FIA F3 European Championship competes against videos from Formula 1, WRC, ERC, WEC, WTCC, World RX, Formula E and Karting.

The footage chosen to represent the FIA Formula 3 European Championship is from the Norisring meeting earlier this year. With only a few minutes remaining on the clock, the battle for the lead of the 17th race of the 2015 FIA Formula 3 European Championship season at Norisring could not have been more thrilling. After a safety car restart George Russell (Carlin) overtakes leader Alexander Albon (Signature) with a skilled move, but cannot hold on to the leading position for long as rookie Charles Leclerc (Van Amersfoort Racing) challenges both Russell and Albon. While all three are immersed in their fierce fight, Maximilian Günther (kfzteile24 Mücke Motorsport), who only started the race from twelfth place on the grid, in a spectacular overtaking maneuver passes all three rivals at once and with this secures his first win of the season at the 2.3 kilometers long street circuit.
