Spielberg, Austria, Red Bull Ring circuit. The weekend of the return on track of the young world talents of the Formula Regional Championship by Alpine, which took place from 9 to 12 September and valid for the seventh round of the season, was exciting and full of twists and turns. In fact, according to the updates of 16-9-2021, the podium of Race 2 has undergone some changes. If on Sunday, 12-9-2021, the winner was the Argentinean Franco Colapinto, thus conquering his first seasonal victories, now, based on the calculation of the penalties incurred, the highest step of the podium is Grégoire Saucy. The Swiss driver therefore further legitimizes his leadership in the championship. This change in the result also affects Francesco personally, who gains ninth position rather than thirteenth. Focusing even more on racing, Francesco took his satisfaction in Austrian territory. Between penalties, dubious situations, accidents and the presence of adverse external factors, such as the fog on the second day of qualifying, the number 51 scores a time of 1:26.298 which allows him to start 14th in Race 2. Seventh among the Rookies! The good results of the Roman boy are also confirmed by the collective tests that precede the qualifications and attest that the summer break has not affected his concentration and his driving level in this first year in the category. The Austrian track is not easy to manage. This is demonstrated by the accident in Race 1 between Lèna Buehler and Tommy Smith and the absence from the podium, in Race 1, of Grégoire Saucy, first in the overall standings. Indeed, on Saturday in the first round the podium saw Franco Colapinto celebrating, Hadrien David in second place and Paul Aron in third. The music did not seem to change on Sunday, in Race 2, until the developments of the last hours that changed the final positions, so that Colapinto loses his victory obtained through two pole positions, it must be emphasized. Beyond the changes that we have told you the race is tough and was also distinguished by the fight between Zane Maloney and Isack Hadjar. Race 2, based on the decisions taken, sees the first three positions changed and occupied by Saucy, Gabriel Bortoleto and Zane Maloney. The end of the year is far away because before October, where the race is run at Mugello and then Monza, we fly to Valencia. Race that replaces the cancelled one in Nurburgring in August.

Is there any need to add more?

See you on track.
