Entertainment and adrenaline in the second weekend of the Italian F4 Championship at the Enzo and Dino Ferrari circuit in Imola: 3 races and 3 different winners. On stage the Tatuus single-seaters powered by the 160 HP Abarth T-Jet engine, driving the very young drivers of the Italian F4 Championship powered by Abarth.
In Race 1 it was the Romanian Ugran who took the lead on lap 5, overtaking the Swede Dino Beganovic and the English Jonny Edgar, who started from the front row, keeping the lead until the end, with a sprint finish ahead of Edgar and the American Jonny Crawford.
Race 2 was held in the rain with a start behind the safety car, which enters the track two more times due to off the track. On the slippery surface, the English Edgar prevailed, preceding the American Crawford and the Italian Andrea Rosso in order.
The latter was the great protagonist of the last race. In the early stages he manages to overtake Carwford and Edgar, to take the lead. Pizzi also comes up from the rear and manages to finish second, ahead of Edgar.
Thanks to this result Pizzi (Van Amersfoort Racing) manages to keep the first place in the general classification of the Italian F4 Championship powered by Abarth with a 2-point advantage over Gabriele Minì (Prema Powerteam) who failed to get on the podium in this event , but collected points in all three races: 7th in Race1, 5th in Race2 and 4th in Race3. The third place is occupied by the Romanian Ugran, 7 points behind the leader.
On the Imola track 24 drivers, including some drivers of the German championship, the FIA ADAC F4 Championship powered by Abarth, who have decided to accumulate further experience by starting some tests of the Italian series on the more technical and demanding circuits, such as that of Imola which this year also hosts a Formula 1 Grand Prix.
One of the prerogatives of the Formula 4 championships, well supported by the reliability of the Abarth engines, is to allow young drivers to race on the most technical, difficult and selective tracks to prepare for the continuation of their racing career in the higher categories. The next appointment, scheduled from 11 to 13 September, will also take place on a circuit created for Formula 1: the Red Bull Ring, in Austria.
