It is Franco Colapinto (MP Motorsport) to be the fastest in a very “busy” daily program today at Monza Circuit, with four 50 minutes pre-event collective tests sessions. 36 the drivers involved for a once more extremely rich grid, confirming the record number of drivers present in the previous round in Mugello, participating in this racing weekend in the “Temple of speed” in Italy.
Behind the Argentinian driver, stopping the watch at 1’46.313 in the fourth and last session, we find a very fast Dino Beganovic (Prema Powerteam), the Rookie coming from a great weekend in Mugello and taking advantage of the good setup of the car that the team has finally found since a couple of rounds. The Estonian sets his best time at 1’46.369, the fastest of session 3, in front of his teammate, Paul Aron (1’46.385). Fourth of the day is Michael Belov (G4 Racing), only 0,097 from the top, so having the 4 fastest drivers in Monza today separated by less than a tenth of a second, anticipating a great battle this weekend. In the 36 drivers entry list the Finn Kosta Lappalainen substitutes Jasin Ferati in the lineup of KIC Motorsport due to the Swiss driver still having some physical issue after the crash in Mugello.
Tomorrow two 50 minutes collective tests sessions are planned, the first starting at 11.10 (CET) and the second at 14.50 (CET).
Saturday will see the drivers battling for pole position in QP1 taking place from 9:25, while Race 1 will start at 14.25. Sunday QP2 will begin at 8.30 and Race 2 will start at 12.10.
Both qualifying sessions and races will be shown live streaming on the official Youtube and Facebook channels of the series, which are also reachable from the official website: formularegionaleubyalpine.com
