Rafael Camara is the fastest of the Day at the Temple of Speed

At the Autodromo Nazionale Monza, Brazilian driver Rafael Camara of Prema Racing emerged as the fastest on Day 1. The driver continues his positive momentum after a victory in Race 1 last weekend, which was unfortunately followed by some misfortune in Race 2. At Monza, a track undoubtedly special for the Italian Team, his best lap was obtained at 1’47.242, making a clear statement of intent for the weekend ahead, where tomorrow the drivers will take to the track for qualifying and then Race 1.

In the second session of collective tests, this time on a dry track, German driver Tim Tramnitz of R-ace GP took second place with a gap of 0.188. Third place went to Mexican RPM driver Santiago Ramos, with a gap of 0.254. Championship leader Andrea Kimi Antonelli, representing Team Prema Racing, finished the first day in fourth place with a gap of 0.307 from his teammate at the top. Sami Meguetounif of MP Motorsport rounded out the top 5; he had already been the fastest in the wet conditions of Monza earlier in the morning and ended the day with a gap of 0.420.

There were issues in the session for Paraguayan driver Joshua Dufek of Arden Motorsport, as his session was interrupted with the red flag after 5 laps, and couldn’t continue. Meanwhile, towards the end of the session, there was another stoppage, this time final, as Giovanni Maschio’s car from Monolite Racing made contact with the barriers.

The complete results of the second collective test are available here.
