It was a weekend full of emotions and we have to say Francesco Pizzi was really great. The boy from Frascati he reaped the fruits of the hard work of this first period of adaptation to the Championship and he can be satisfied and smile.

The Formula Regional European championship by Alpine, made a stop in Zandvoort, Holland, from June 18th to June 20th for its fifth appointment. It was a weekend full of emotions and we have to say Francesco Pizzi was really great. The boy from Frascati he reaped the fruits of the hard work of this first period of adaptation to the Championship and he can be satisfied and smile. It is a liberation for the Roman talent who drives carefully and fearless in the race in the Netherlands, his team’s home track ( Van Amersfoort ). If the free tests are complicated because of the summer rain, typical in the land of tulips, which makes the asphalt treacherous, the qualifications and the two races are a continuous crescendo for Francesco which shows us what to run for in such a high level Championship: intelligence and skill to sell. He shows these qualities immediately on Saturday morning, in the qualifications, placing in eleventh position overall and fifth among rookie. He pushes hard on the accelerator to reach top fifth position and he can’t reach further positions only because of the red flag. The morning ends and you can already understand that Holland is good for Francesco, who , in the afternoon, follows up on his inspiration running positively in Race 1, without committing any errors in such a difficult circuit like Zandvoort, which is famous among experts for overtaking not exactly easy. Francesco arrives 13th , Grégoire Saucy wins the race , ( he ends the weekend gaining two pole positions and two victories ), Gabriele Mini’ arrives second and Hadrien David arrives third. We have to highlight an exciting duel among Isaac Hadjar, Mikhael Belov and Dino Beganovic. However don’t be fooled by the number 13 because Francesco likes this circuit more and more. In fact Sunday and the second session of qualifications arrive soon, before Race 2 in which he marks the following time 1’32’’ 010 . Thanks to it he occupies the third row. Now Race 2 is beginning and the Roman pilot gets into his car and shows his intelligence: no distraction; professionalism and clarity which allow him to resist repeated attacks of Has Haverkort and Paul Aron and finish the competition at the fifth place. He drives with more and more safety, shows progress made with past efforts and gets out of the Dutch circuit with the right spirit for the continuation of the championship. The winner of Race 2 is the Swish Gregoire Saucy, second Franco Colapinto and Gabriele Mini ‘ after him. Zandvoort is favourable for Francesco who has got a month to recharge the battery for the next Grand Prix In SPA on July 22nd/25th. The Formula Regional European by Alpine will run in the same place as Formula 1.
Don’t loose any race, it will be really exciting and amusing.
See you soon!
