Forty-two drivers from 21 different nations take to the track next weekend at the wheel of F4 single-seaters powered by the Abarth engine. In fact, the fifth round of the Italian F4 Championship powered by Abarth is scheduled at Monza and, on the Austrian Red Bull Ring circuit, the fifth round of the FIA ADAC F4 Championship powered by Abarth.
Both circuits host Formula 1 and therefore represent an ideal training ground for very young kart drivers with ambitions of professional motorsport.
In Monza, in the temple of speed, the Italian Gabriele Minì (Prema Powerteam) will try to defend his leadership in the championship from the attacks of his compatriots Andrea Rosso (Cram Motorsport) and Francesco Pizzi (Van Amersfoort Racing). Minì has collected 196 points so far and has a consistent advantage over Rosso, at 121, fighting for the place of honor with Pizzi (117 points). The Monza weekend program includes two qualifying qualifying sessions on Saturday 17 October at 9.50 and 10.15; in the afternoon, at 3.15 pm Race 1. Sunday Race 2 takes place at 10 and Race 3 at 15.50. Live streaming on www.acisport.it .
