On a dry track (14°C), with a cloudy sky and less wind than yesterday, Paul Aron (Prema Powerteam) confirms his and the team’s good shape conquering pole position in the first qualifying session at Mugello Circuit. The Estonian stops the watch at 1’42.112, while his teammate Dino Beganovic, the first of the Rookies, is behind by 0.116. Very close to the Swedish is Michael Belov (G4 – Racing, 1’42.259) and fourth is the very good Spanish Mari Boya (Van Amersfoort Racing), second of the Rookies.
“I am pleased for the pole position, but cannot say anything until the result of the race this afternoon. I am really happy that since Red Bull Ring the team has found a new line and the correct solutions to the difficult start of the season. All the team, engineers and mechanics, have worked a lot for this, and also I believe we drivers have given the right support to obtain these performances. I personally have worked hard to be sure that once the car was there I was also ready”, has commented Paul Aron after QP1.
Race 1 this afternoon will start at 14.55, for 30′ plus 1 lap race, where the show should be really good with the long straights and fast corners of the spectacular Mugello Circuit.
