In the Rookie Trophy Lorandi took the win, followed by Fittipaldi and Carrara
Race 1 of the Italian F.4 Championship powered by Abarth was held under clear skies with the temperature hovering around 20 degrees. When the red lights went out, it was the polesitter, the Venezuelan Fernandez (Bhaitech), who got away well, however, an even better start from second position for the New Zealander Armstrong (Prema Power Team), who looked immediately to attack. From that moment though, Fernandez found the rhythm that no other driver could match and he pulled away to win by 3.5 seconds at the chequered flag. Third was the Italian Lorenzo Colombo (Bhaitech), who in the final stages looked to mount an attack on Armstrong, but by his own admission was not able to take advantage of the slipstream. Bhaitech were there again to take fourth position with the Italian Leonardo Lorandi, fifth another Rookie, the Brazilian Enzo Fittipaldi for Prema Power Team.
- Sixth position for the Russian Artem Petrov, who was not able to get by Fittipaldi despite trying throughout the course of the race. Seventh was the German Lirim Zendeli (BWT Muecke Motorsport), followed by the Dutch driver Job Van Uitert (Jenzer Motorsport), who did lose precious points in the championship to the leader Armstrong, and then Colombo, who is chasing him. Closing out the top ten were two more Jenzer Motorsport drivers: the Indian Kush Maini and the Swiss driver Gregoire Saucy.
