DIFFICULT DEBUT IN IMOLA FOR FRANCESCO. APPOINTMENT IN BARCELONA ON MAY 9TH.
The last weekend in Imola in the Enzo and Dino circuit was really difficult. The first round of the Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine soon starts with qualifications, but Francesco cannot express his speed . Besides Francesco is affected by physical problems which slows him down during the entire weekend. Therefore as he is not very fit, the first session ends gaining only the 24th place also because of a pressure problem in the tires. In the second session he gais the 14th position dueling against the chequered flag. But Francesco ‘s heart goes beyond any obstacle, so he fights in Race1 on Saturday and in Race 2 on Sunday. Race 1 is characterized by penalties , hard contacts and safety car on the track. Three pilots from different teams get on the podium. This confirms the exstraordinary equilibrium of the European championship giving hope in the future races in which Francesco will be able to redeem himself. The winner is the Spanish David Vidales Who does not start very fast but arrives first. Alex Quinn , England, and Hadrien David are After him. On Satuday he gains the 18th position, and Francesco prepares for Race 2 which is taking place on Sunday. Unfotunately the weather forecasts promise rain and this presages another hard fiht day. And this fact happens really. The Race ends in the 17th position and Francesco is very sorry and disappointed.
The Race ends with the victory of the Swiss Gregory Saucy, followed by Paul Aron from Estone,and Zane Maloney from Barbados.
Next appointment in Barcelona always together with F1!
See you soon
