The American also took out the Rookie Trophy. Second place overall for Mick Schumacher, third for Kush Maini. Fabienne Wohlwend made the Women’s Trophy her own
Vallelunga (RM) 11/9/2016 – When the red lights went out, the winner of Race 1 Raul Guzman (DR Formula) remained stationary on the grid and was hit by the innocent Joao Vieria (Antonelli Motorsport), who was in turn collected by Marino Sato (Vincenzo Sospiri Racing). The drivers involved were uninjured and immediately the Safety Car intervened on the circuit and took control of the race until it pulled into pitlane with just 6 minutes of the race remaining. As Juan Manuel Correa (Prema Power Team), took control from pole position courtesy of the top ten inverted grid from the results of race 2 and he raced away to victory, behind him the battle raged.
The driver who was making the biggest impact was Correa’s teammate, Mick Schumacher, who immediately got past Juri Vips (who was 14th at the race end after an error on the sixth lap) and came home to finish second. Third therefore went to the Indian driver Kush Maini (BVM Racing), who not only was second in the Rookie Trophy, but also was on the overall race podium for the first time. He was followed by Sebastian Fernandez (RB Racing and third in the Rookie Trophy), Artem Petrov (DR Formula, 4th in the Rookie Trophy), Marcos Siebert (Jenzer Motorsport), Diego Bertonelli (Bhaitech), Giacomo Altoè (Bhaitech and the 5th Rookie), Giuliano Raucci (Diegi Motorsport) and Job Van Uitert (Jenzer Motorsport).
Fabienne Wohlwend took out the Women’s Trophy and was 19th overall.
The next round (the sixth and penultimate round of 2016) of the Italian F4 Championship powered by Abarth will take place on 23/24/25 of September at the circuit of Imola. The complete results of Race 3 are available on acisportitalia.it/f4.
