Ticktum, backed by Red Bull, lost the F3 championship to Mick Schumacher.
Ticktum said it was about to collect enough super license points for F1. He got 25 points for taking the second place in F3 and 5 points for his win in Macau GP and 8 points in his country.
Ticktum: "I will continue to fight for F1."
"I need 40 points and I have a score of 38. I can evaluate opportunities like the MRF Challenge, Toyota Racing Series." "If there's any way I can, I'm going to take it that way."
"Because I'm Dan Ticktum. I just made a few mistakes and there were people who said I wasn't ready for Helmut Marko. I know I'll be fast when I get a super license."
Ticktum announced that he was going to comment on the 2018 season after the end of the season, but he seems to have changed his mind. "I passed my views without censorship. I said everything from social media."
"I'm checking the things I can control and I want to focus on it."
Ticktum refused to comment on rumors that he would compete in Formula 2 with DAMS as well as Super Formula next year without F1.
Ticktum ranked 9th and 15th in Hockenheim in the F3 final. Ticktum blames himself for these results. "I screwed up." "I was trying to do my best. I wasn't fighting for the championship, I had no chance at all. But I wanted my last races to be beautiful."
"I've stuck to the cycle limit a couple of times. I wouldn't do it normally, it was stupid, but I'm still happy with my season."
