Wet track and rain tyres, but standing start for race 2 of the F4 at Misano. Inexperience mistake by the fast Paul Aron (Prema Powerteam), who at the start goes too far and has to put the reverse gear to reposition the car. This gives him a drive-through penalty that takes him from first to last position.
Head of the race is so taken by the Van Amersfoort Racing couple, Krutten - Hauger. Behind them Alatalo (BWT Muecke Motorsport) makes a great overtake on Rasmussen (Prema Powerteam). Lap after lap track dries up and rain tyres tend to wear fast, while some drivers take the chance to go on dry tyres. First one of them is Aron, who finally does not manage to take advantage of this and is out of track.
This leads to the entry of the safety car 11 minutes to the end.
At the restart the couple Krutten – Hauger keeps the lead and is fast to leave the group behind, showing real strength of the team from the Netherlands in this second race. Behind them is the championship leader Petecof, holding to third position after starting only 6th due to bad strategy in qualifying 2.
Two laps to the end and Hauger gets on the side of his teammate, the two touch each other but with no consequences, and the Norwegian is first and wins the race in front of Krutten and Petecof.
In the Rookie classification first is a very good Meyuhas (Cram Motorsport), followed by the driver from Paraguay Joshua Duerksen (BWT Muecke Motorsport) and the British Edgar (Jenzer Motorsport).
This afternoon race 3 will start at 14.40.
