The last weekend of the season for the Italian F.4 Championship powered by Abarth will decide the champion for 2017. The Team’s title also be decided
It’s almost here: The Italian F.4 Championship powered by Abarth will crown, on Sunday October 22, it’s fourth ever champion in the series history. The drivers who have already written their names in the record books include Lance Stroll (2014), Ralf Aron (2015) and Marcos Siebert (2016) and soon, either the New Zealander Marcus Armstrong (Prema Power Team) or the Dutch driver Job Van Uitert (Jenzer Motorsport). These two are in first and second position in the series, with 267 and 214 points respectively. The great competitiveness of the seasons – and therefore a high grade of uncertainty during the final three races – will be highlighted at the legendary Monza circuit, during the third official test on Wednesday October 18, also at the Brianza circuit.
- It’s important to underline, the final classification of the Driver’s Title, the best results from the best sixteen (16) races will count towards a drivers tally.
- Additionally, the Team’s Title is also to fight for. Bhaitech (who already won the Rookie Trophy with Leonardo Lorandi) and Prema Power Team (the team which has among others Armstrong) are on 487 and 433 points respectively. In this case, all points scored will count towards the title.
- The programme for the weekend, in which drivers from 12 different nations will compete, will see two free practice sessions – of 40 minutes duration each – on Friday the 20th of October at 9:05 and 13:25. At 17:40 and at 18:00, still on Friday, the two qualifying sessions get underway to decide the grids for Races 1 and 2. Each qualifying will be over 15 minutes, with a 10 minute break after the first. In the case of two or more drivers recording the identical time, priority will be given to the driver who scored the time first.
- Race 1 will be held on Saturday the 21th at 14:45, meanwhile on Sunday at 9:20 and 16:10 will see Races 2 and 3 respectively. The grid for Race 3 will be determined by the second best times attained by drivers in either of the qualifying sessions.
- All races contribute to the various championships including the overall championship, the Rookie Trophy (for series debutants), the Woman’s Trophy and the Teams Trophy.
- Fans can follow the action directly on Sportitalia (Channel 60 and Digital Sky 225), streamed live on www.f4championship.com, and also on the official WSK Promotion app.
