Danish driver of Van Amersfoort Racing is really in good shape here at Circuit Paul Ricard and wins under strong rain, in front of Fittipaldi, the fastest on track, and an excellent Carrara
13/05/2018 – Race 2 sees wet track conditions that will get worse during the race, and so start is lunched with safety car that will lead drivers for a few laps to let them test and get used to the low visibility and grip conditions. The young talents of the Italian F4 Championship Powered by Abarth have had to battle in tough conditions, where possibility of going with tyres on the painted lateral white lines on the track can easily determine spinning of the car. This happens to poleman Olli Caldwell (Prema Theodore Racing), who is out in first lap, while Frederik Vesti starts well, leads the entire race and conquers an amazing victory. Behind him, the always fast (his is the best lap time of the race 2’24.184) Enzo Fittipaldi (Prema Theodore Racing), while an excellent Giorgio Carrara (Jenzer Motorsport), from Argentina, is third.
In fourth position we find the very aggressive Gianluca Petecof (Prema Theodore Racing), first of the Rookies and net leader of the general classification of Rookie Trophy, while fifth is Charles Weerts (Van Amersfoort Racing) and sixth Leonardo Lorandi (Bhai Tech), who here at Le Castellet does not seem to be able to express all his potential.
Final classification of Rookie Trophy sees, behind Petecof, Jack Doohan (Prema Theodore Racing), 10° overall, and Peter Ptacek (Bhai Tech Racing), 13°.
Race 3 is planned at 15:40 (CET + 1 time), if weather conditions will be acceptable, and will go in live streaming on ACI Sport website at the link http://www.acisport.it/it/F4/home and on Facebook at the link www.facebook.com/italianf4championship/, while it will go on Sportitalia television at 17:45 (CET + 1 time).
