Dino Beganovic (Prema Powerteam – Rookie) conquers pole position (1’57.054) on a wet track in Monza, with a good advantage on his two teammates, David Vidales (1’57.405) and Paul Aron (1’57.431), respectively second and third. Fourth is Isack Hadjar (R-ace GP – 1’57.664), since race 1 yesterday the new Rookie champion of the series. Fifth is the Rookie vice-champion Gabriele Minì (ART Grand Prix – 1’57.747) and sixth is his teammate and Title winner Grègoire Saucy (1’57.820). Aron will though start fifth due to a two positions penality coming from Race 1.
The track has been wet enough to require drivers to use wet tires, and the constant drying of the asphalt has also determined an amazing qualifying session, with best lap times improving constantly, and the final grid set thanks to the very last lap time of each driver. The session is stopped some minutes to the end with a Red Flag caused by Delli Guanti spinning and stopping in a dangerous position without the possibility to restart. In the last part of the session the best lap times are set, while before the red flag it was Minì to have set the fastest lap.
“I am really happy about the result, finally in pole position. It is great to have a one, two, three with Prema drivers, as the team has worked amazingly well to be back where Prema deserves to be. I have always been confident we would be back in the first positions. We have the pace both on a dry and wet track so no problem what happens for Race 2”, comments Beganovic after QP2.
“A very good result which I am happy about, even though I was slowed down on the last lap, evidently the fastest with the track conditions improving, by Sami Meguetounif. The setup is good, I can be strong both on dry and wet”, comments Vidales, who will be starting in the first row beside Beganovic.
