In the double race weekend for the FIA F4 Championship powered by Abarth in Italy and Germany, debutants on the top step of the podium
In the first weekend of the FIA F4 Championships powered by Abarth in Italy and Germany 6 races and 5 different winners on the two circuits that hosted the seasonal opening on the Misano Adriatico track and on the Lausitzring track.
The first round of the Italian F4 Championship powered by Abarth took place on the Misano Adriatico circuit, named after Marco Simoncelli and saw 21 drivers at the start, representing 14 nations. The three races were very hard fought and had three different winners: all three Italians, debutants behind the wheel of a single-seater and coming from the kart. And it was from 2018 that an Italian driver did not win a race in this championship.
The first race saw the emergence of the very young Gabriele Minì, who started from pole position and was able to keep the lead of the race until the end, despite the attacks of his compatriot Francesco Pizzi, who finished with a gap of just 546 thousandths of a second. Third came Russian Filip Ugran.
The winner of Race 2 is also Italian: Andrea Rosso preceded Ugran and Pizzi in the sprint, with Minì fourth. Pizzi himself made up for it in the last race, preceding Minì and the Swede Dino Beganovic.
The general classification of the Italian F4 Championship powered by Abarth sees Pizzi in command, with 3 points ahead of Minì.
The next round of the Italian F4 Championship powered by Abarth is held on the Imola circuit from 28 to 30 August.
The spectacular Lausitzring circuit was the scene of the opening of the ADAC F4 Championship powered by Abarth, where the Englishman Jonny Edgar won the first two races preceding the German Joshua Durksen in the first and the American Jack Crawford in the second. The third race instead enhanced the Finnish Elias Seppänen, who preceded the Frenchman Victor Bernier.
Edgar has shown great maturity by winning both in the dry in Race 1 and in the wet in Race 2.
The Englishman Edgar leads the general classification of the championship with a 12 point advantage over the Finnish Seppänen.
Next round on the Nurburgring circuit from 14 to 16 August.
