Francesco Pizzi continues his winning path in Yas Marina Circuit
Complicated weekend for Francesco Pizzi that ends on a high by winning the fourth race at the third round of the F4UAE Championship at Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi.
Another win and the head of the championship firmly in his hands: Francesco Pizzi finishes the third round of the F4UAE Championship in Abu Dhabi leading the championship ahead of Nico Göhler.
Xcel Motorsport’s Francesco Pizzi continues his campaign in the F4 UAE Championship taking home two wins out of four races. Another strong performance for the 15-year old driver from Rome who is running on P1 in the championship.
Despite the win took in the last race, not everything was easy for him throughout the weekend. Francesco starts with the fastest lap in Free Practice 1, posting the second fastest laptime in Qualifying. In Race 1, while Francesco was second, a stone pierces the radiator causing an engine failure that prevents him from crossing the line. In Race 2 Francesco recovers up to 5th overall and then in Race 3 steps once again on the podium after a fierce battle against Fluxa and Göhler. Finally in Race 4, after a tough weekend, Francesco returns in his favourite position: 1st!
“Overall it has been a tough weekend and it demonstrates that is not over until it’s over. Despite the gap I accumulated in the previous rounds, you can never be 100% relaxed. That’s racing! Anyway, once again we demonstrated to be really competitive, we have been in the top five in all the races and only a stone in the radiator could stop us! Thanks to Xcel Motorsport for the effort, thanks to my sponsors, my family and my coach Gimmi Bruni for the support. Looking forward to the next round in Dubai next week.”
Francesco Pizzi will return on track for the F.4 UAE, round 4 at Dubai Autodrome, Dubai, on February 21st and 22nd.
