The Italian F4 Championship powered by Abarth and the Formula Regional European Championship returns to the very fast Autodromo Nazionale in Monza to continue what we are sure will be an electrifying second half of the season. In fact, the rain at Mugello, in addition to giving us spectacular duels and putting the drivers’ skills to the test, shook up the standings of both championships. Those who find themselves chasing cannot now make a single mistake in the next events. Starting with this weekend at what it is a real temple of speed, the historic home of the Italian Grand Prix and the setting for some of the most memorable feats in the history of motorsport. And above all, as far as we are concerned, a permanent fixture in the ACI Sport and WSK Promotion championship calendar. After all, our mission is to develop champions and champions need to perform on big stages.

L’Italian F4 Championship powered by Abarth e il Formula Regional European Championship tornano sul velocissimo Autodromo Nazionale di Monza per proseguire quella che siamo sicuri sarà una elettrizzante seconda parte di stagione. La pioggia incontrata al Mugello, infatti, oltre che a regalarci delle battaglie spettacolari e a mettere le abilità dei piloti a dura prova, ha dato uno scossone alle classifiche di entrambi i campionati. E ora, chi si trova a inseguire non potrà sbagliare neanche una mossa nei prossimi appuntamenti. A cominciare da questo weekend su quello che è un vero e proprio tempio della velocità, sede storica del Gran Premio d’Italia e scenario di alcune tra le imprese più memorabili della storia dell’automobilismo. Ma soprattutto, per quanto ci riguarda, un punto fermo nel calendario dei campionati by ACI Sport e WSK Promotion. Del resto la nostra missione è quella di far crescere dei campioni e i campioni devono calcare grandi palcoscenici.

ITALIANS CHARGING INTO BATTLE IN F4 The Italian F4 Championship powered by Abarth has attracted drivers from all over the world since its debut. It could not be otherwise for the first F4 championship in the world established on FIA guidelines, thanks to which the most promising talents in karting have found the entry point to the single-seaters ladder that was missing until then. The best proof of the international, not to say global, character of the series brought to the track since its debut by ACI Sport and WSK Promotion, lies precisely in the championship’s roll of honour, so far won by drivers all over the world, but never by an Italian. Leonardo Lorandi was the one who came closest in 2018, but he came second behind Enzo Fittipaldi. However, this year things could change because there are three names alongside the Italian flag at the top of the championship standings. The first is that of Gabriele Minì, the Prema Powerteam rookie currently in the lead by a good margin thanks to the amazing consistency shown so far, followed by Andrea Rosso of Cram Motorsport and Francesco Pizzi of Van Amersfoort Racing for whom the title is still very much up for grabs. Could this be the right time for Italian fans? We will find out after just three races…

L’Italian F4 Championship powered by Abarth ha richiamato piloti da tutto il mondo sin dal suo debutto. E non poteva essere altrimenti per il primo campionato F4 al mondo a nascere sulle direttive FIA, grazie al quale i talenti più promettenti del kart hanno trovato il punto d’approdo che fino a quel momento mancava nel mondo delle monoposto. La migliore testimonianza del carattere internazionale, per non dire mondiale, della serie portata in pista fin dall’esordio da ACI Sport e WSK Promotion sta proprio nell’Albo d’oro del campionato, finora vinto da piloti provenienti da ogni angolo del pianeta, ma mai da un italiano. Leonardo Lorandi fu quello che ci andò più vicino nel 2018, quando fu però secondo dietro a Enzo Fittipaldi. Ma quest’anno le cose potrebbero cambiare perché ci sono ben tre nomi, con a fianco la bandiera italiana, in testa alla classifica del campionato. Il primo è quello di Gabriele Minì, il debuttante in forza a Prema Powerteam ora al comando con un buon margine grazie all’incredibile costanza mostrata finora, seguito da Andrea Rosso di Cram Motorsport e Francesco Pizzi di Van Amersfoort Racing per cui la partita è tutt’altro che chiusa. Che sia la volta buona per i tifosi del tricolore? Lo scopriremo tra solo tre gare…

Jamie Chadwick has had a career made of first times: she was the first woman to win the British GT Championship in 2015, the first to win a race in the British Formula 3 Championship in 2018, and the winner of the inaugural edition of the W Series in 2019.

The rapid growth of this French talent has impressed everyone. She debuted in karting in 2014, the year in which she won her first race, while 2017 was the year of her debut in single-seaters, also enhanced with a victory in the French championship. Pierre-Loius Chovet also made his Formula 3 debut this year.

Quella di Jamie Chadwick è una carriera fatta di prime volte: è stata la prima donna a vincere il British GT Championship nel 2015, la prima ad aver vinto una gara del Campionato Inglese di Formula 3 nel 2018 e la vincitrice dell’edizione inaugurale della W Series nel 2019.

La rapida crescita di questo talento francese ha impressionato tutti. Il suo debutto in kart avviene nel 2014, anno in cui vince la sua prima gara, mentre il 2017 è l’anno del debutto con le monoposto, anche questo arricchito con una vittoria nel campionato francese. Quest’anno, Pierre-Loius Chovet ha anche esordito in Formula 3.

Andrea Cola’s single-seater journey began 4 years ago with Monolite Racing in the F2 Italian Trophy, winning 4 times. Since then, Andrea has continue accumulating experience in Formula 3 cars, winning the Austrian championship three times and, in 2019, the FIA Central European Zone Formula 3 championship.

The Venezuelan talent, coached by Juan Pablo Montoya, made his debut in the Italian F4 Championship powered by Abarth in 2018 with the Bhaitech team and then moved on to Prema Powerteam the following season. His Formula Regional debut was delayed due to the pandemic, but Alessandro is already moving up the standings.

Il percorso in monoposto di Andrea Cola inizia 4 anni fa proprio con Monolite Racing nell’F2 Italian Trophy ottenendo 4 vittorie. Da lì, Andrea continua ad accumulare esperienza con vetture di Formula 3, vincendo per tre volte il campionato austriaco e, nel 2019, il campionato FIA Central European Zone Formula 3.

Il talento venezuelano allenato da Juan Pablo Montoya ha debuttato nell’Italian F4 Championship powered by Abarth nel 2018 con il team Bhaitech per poi passare a Prema Powerteam la stagione successiva. Il suo debutto in Formula Regional è stato ritardato a causa della pandemia, ma Alessandro ora sta già risalendo la classifica.

Filip Ugran Jenzer Motorsport

Andrea Rosso (Cram Motorsport) obtains his third win of the season in race 1, stopping the charge of an attacking Gabriel Bortoleto (Prema Powerteam) who crosses the finish line in second position after starting twelfth due to a penalty caused by an engine change. Rosso sprints with perfect timing after two laps spent behind the safety car due to the rain, while Gabriele Minì (Prema Powerteam), who started in second position is immediately attacked by Filip Ugran (Jenzer Motorsport) at the San Donato. The race loses one of its protagonists already in the first lap, when Jonny Edgar (Van Amersfoort Racing) ends up in the gravel after a collision at the last turn with Dino Beganovic (Prema Powerteam), who was then penalized. Rosso makes no mistakes in the lead, but Bortoleto comes close to pull off a masterclass after having moved into second position on the ninth lap, he manages to cross the finish line less than two seconds behind the leader. The third place goes to Ugran, more than 10 seconds behind and yet still ahead of Minì.

Andrea Rosso (Cram Motorsport) ottiene la sua terza vittoria stagionale in gara 1, resistendo alla carica di un arrembante Gabriel Bortoleto (Prema Powerteam) che taglia il traguardo in seconda posizione dopo essere partito dodicesimo a causa di una penalità dovuta a un cambio di motore. Rosso scatta con un tempismo perfetto dopo i primi due giri trascorsi dietro la safety car per via della pioggia, mentre Gabriele Minì (Prema Powerteam), partito in seconda posizione, viene subito attaccato da Filip Ugran (Jenzer Motorsport) alla San Donato. La gara perde uno dei protagonisti già al primo giro, quando Jonny Edgar (Van Amersfoort Racing) finisce nella ghiaia dopo uno scontro all’ultima curva con Dino Beganovic (Prema Powerteam), poi penalizzato. Rosso non sbaglia niente in testa, ma Bortoleto va vicino a compiere un capolavoro perché dopo essersi portato in seconda posizione al nono giro, riesce ad arrivare al traguardo a meno di due secondi dal leader. Il terzo posto va a Ugran, staccato di oltre 10 secondi, che precede Minì.

Jonny Edgar Van Amersfoort Racing

Race 2 is still disputed under the rain and this time, Gabriel Bortoleto (Prema Powerteam) who started from the pole position, manages to prevail over his opponents by achieving his first victory of the season. The Brazilian, however, races the first seven laps behind his teammate Gabriele Minì, who surprises him on the first lap at the entrance of turn two with a lightning attack at the last second. Bortoleto regains the lead on the 8th lap, then winning an intense duel with Minì in which the two swapped positions several times. Behind them, however, Andrea Rosso (Cram Motorsport) gains ground by overtaking, first Dino Beganovic (Prema Powerteam), and then Minì at the next to the last lap. Rosso will then finish second at the finish line just one second from Bortoleto, but a 10 second penalty for an jump start will demote him to 4th position, behind Minì and Beganovic. Fifth position for Jonny Edgar (Van Amersfoort Racing), winner of the duel with Filip Ugran (Jenzer Motorsport).

Gara 2 si disputa ancora sotto la pioggia e questa volta Gabriel Bortoleto (Prema Powerteam), partito dalla pole, riesce a imporsi sugli avversari ottenendo la sua prima vittoria stagionale. Il brasiliano trascorre però i primi sette giri dietro al compagno di squadra Gabriele Minì, che lo sorprende già al primo giro all’ingresso di curva due con un fulmineo attacco all’ultimo secondo. Bortoleto torna in testa all’ottavo passaggio, vincendo poi un intenso duello con Minì in cui i due si scambiano più volte le posizioni. Dietro di loro, però, Andrea Rosso (Cram Motorsport) guadagna terreno a gran velocità, superando prima Dino Beganovic (Prema Powerteam) e poi Minì al penultimo giro. Rosso arriverà poi secondo sul traguardo a poco più di un secondo da Bortoleto, ma una penalità di 10 secondi per partenza anticipata lo farà retrocedere ai piedi del podio, alle spalle di Minì e Beganovic. Quinta posizione per Jonny Edgar (Van Amersfoort Racing), vincitore del duello con Filip Ugran (Jenzer Motorsport).

Francesco Pizzi Van Amersfoort Racing

The asphalt of the Mugello circuit has time to dry for the last race of the weekend, flawlessly won by Gabriele Minì (Prema Powerteam), increasingly being a leader in the Championship. At the start, the poleman Gabriel Bortoleto (Prema Powerteam) loses the lead at the first turn by the Italian, who will remain in the lead even at the restart of the race, after the collision between Lorenzo Patrese (AKM Motorsport) and Han Cenyu (Van Amersfoort Racing), requires the intervention of the safety car. Bortoleto, on the other hand, is handed a 5 second penalty due to contact with Jonny Edgar (Van Amersfoort Racing) which costs the Englishman several positions. At the next-to-last lap for Edgar arrives the second DNF of the weekend after being hit by his own teammate Jak Crawford. At the bottom of the podium in 3rd, occupied by Minì, Dino Beganovic (Prema Powerteam) and Bortoleto, third after the penalty, we find Andrea Rosso (Cram Motorsport) who precedes Francesco Pizzi (Van Amersfoort Racing), fifth after a comeback from the sixteenth position on the grid.

Sebastian Montoya Prema Powerteam

L’asfalto dell’Autodromo del Mugello fa in tempo ad asciugarsi per l’ultima gara del weekend, vinta in maniera impeccabile da Gabriele Minì (Prema Powerteam), sempre più leader del campionato. Alla partenza, il poleman Gabriel Bortoleto (Prema Powerteam) perde il comando già alla prima curva a favore dell’italiano, che rimarrà in testa anche alla ripartenza della gara, dopo che la collisione tra Lorenzo Patrese (AKM Motorsport) e Han Cenyu (Van Amersfoort Racing), rende necessario l’intervento della safety car. Bortoleto, invece, rimedia una penalità di 5 secondi a causa di un contatto con Jonny Edgar (Van Amersfoort Racing) che costa all’inglese parecchie posizioni. Al penultimo giro, per Edgar arriva poi il secondo ritiro del weekend, dopo essere stato colpito proprio dal suo stesso compagno di squadra Jak Crawford. Ai piedi del podio, occupato da Minì, Dino Beganovic (Prema Powerteam) e Bortoleto, terzo dopo aver scontato la penalità, troviamo Andrea Rosso (Cram Motorsport) che precede Francesco Pizzi (Van Amersfoort Racing), quinto dopo una rimonta dalla sedicesima casella in griglia. 35

The rain falling on the Mugello circuit forces the marshals to start Race 1 behind the safety car, which gives the drivers two laps to familiarize themselves with the track’s conditions. After the start, Oliver Rasmussen (Prema Powerteam) keeps the lead while, behind, Arthur Leclerc (Prema Powerteam) gets rid of the two KIC Motorsport drivers, Konsta Lappalainen and Juri Vips to get behind the race leader. The Monegasque awaits the third lap to launch an attack giving him the victory, completing a spectacular maneuver around the outside of the Arrabbiata 1, although at the moment the yellow flags were waving. Thanks to his unmatched race pace, Leclerc manages to compensate for the 10 second penalty imposed on him by the marshals and still gets on the first step of the podium ahead of Vips, who got ahead of Rasmussen during the tenth lap. Gianluca Petecof (Prema Powerteam), who started from the fifth position, ends the race at the bottom of the podium in 3rd.

La pioggia che si abbatte sull’Autodromo del Mugello costringe i commissari a far partire Gara 1 dietro la safety car, che concede ai piloti due giri per prendere confidenza con le condizioni del tracciato. Dopo il via, Oliver Rasmussen (Prema Powerteam) mantiene il comando mentre, dietro, Arthur Leclerc (Prema Powerteam) si libera dei due portacolori di KIC Motorsport Konsta Lappalainen e Juri Vips per portarsi alle spalle del leader della corsa. Il monegasco attende il terzo giro per sferrare l’attacco valido per la vittoria, completando una spettacolare manovra all’esterno dell’Arrabbiata 1, sebbene in quel momento sventolassero le bandiere gialle. Grazie al suo passo gara inavvicinabile, Leclerc riesce a compensare la penalità di 10 secondi inflittagli dai commissari e a salire comunque sul primo gradino del podio davanti a Vips, portatosi davanti a Rasmussen nel corso del decimo giro. Gianluca Petecof (Prema Powerteam), scattato dalla quinta posizione, conclude la gara ai piedi del podio.

In race 2, the partially wet asphalt has the teams facing a difficult choice in terms of tires, with Leclerc (Prema Powerteam) and teammates Oliver Rasmussen and Gianluca Petecof deciding to play it safe and choosing tires best suited for wet track conditions. A choice that did not pay off and forced them, already during the fourth lap, to return to the pits to mount slick tires, losing positions. The lead then passes to Pierre-Louis Chovet (Van Amersfoort Racing), followed by Gillian Henrion (Gillian Track Events GTE) and Jamie Chadwick (Prema Powerteam), all three lined up on the grid with slick tires. The return of the rain triggers another round of pit-stops to go back to rain tires, but it is on lap 9 that the race completely changes. The safety car called back onto the track following the off-track of Andrea Cola (Monolite Racing), resets the advantage of the first three and, at the restart, Leclerc in a state of grace on the wet track, takes less than two laps to take the lead. The victory, therefore, goes to the Monegasque, followed on the podium by Chovet and Petecof.

Emidio Pesce DR Formula RP Motorsport

In gara 2, l’asfalto solo parzialmente bagnato mette i team di fronte a una scelta difficile per quanto riguarda gli pneumatici, con Leclerc (Prema Powerteam) e i compagni di squadra Oliver Rasmussen e Gianluca Petecof che decidono di andare sul sicuro, schierandosi con gomme da bagnato. Una scelta che però non paga e che li costringe, già al quarto giro, a tornare ai box per montare pneumatici slick, perdendo posizioni. Il comando passa quindi a Pierre-Louis Chovet (Van Amersfoort Racing), seguito da Gillian Henrion (Gillian Track Events GTE) e Jamie Chadwick (Prema Powerteam), tutti e tre schieratisi in griglia con gomme da asciutto. Il ritorno della pioggia innesca un altro valzer di pit stop per tornare su gomme rain ma è al giro 9 che la gara cambia completamente faccia: la safety car, chiamata in pista a seguito del fuori pista di Andrea Cola (Monolite Racing), azzera il vantaggio dei primi tre e, alla ripartenza, Leclerc, in stato di grazia sul bagnato, impiega meno di due giri per portarsi in testa. La vittoria quindi va al monegasco, seguito sul podio da Chovet e Petecof.

Arthur Leclerc (Prema Powerteam) makes it a treble at Mugello, winning race 3 after a long fight with teammate Gianluca Petecof. Starting from the pole position, Leclerc immediately finds himself battling with the Brazilian to whom he has to give way while braking into turn 1, before losing even the second position to the advantage of Oliver Rasmussen (Prema Powerteam) and ending up in the 3rd position. On the second lap, the Danish driver tries to attack Petecof, ending up on the grass and re-entering the track behind Leclerc. The judges attribute the blame for Rasmussen going off-track to Petecof, who thus receives the white and black flag before being overtaken by Leclerc. Once in the lead, the Monegasque tries to pull a gap, engaging a long-distance duel with Petecof with quick laps. The positions remain unchanged and Leclerc will once again climb to the top step of the podium ahead of Petecof and Rasmussen, while Patrik Pasma wins the duel at KIC Motorsport with Konsta Lappalainen for the fourth position.

Arthur Leclerc (Prema Powerteam) fa tripletta al Mugello, aggiudicandosi anche gara 3 dopo un lungo duello con il compagno di squadra Gianluca Petecof. Scattato dalla pole, Leclerc si ritrova infatti da subito a battagliare con il brasiliano, a cui deve cedere il passo alla staccata della curva 1 prima di perdere anche la seconda posizione a vantaggio di Oliver Rasmussen (Prema Powerteam). Al secondo giro, il danese tenta anche l’attacco su Petecof, finendo però sull’erba e rientrando in pista dietro a Leclerc. I giudici attribuiscono la colpa del fuori pista di Rasmussen a Petecof, che riceve così la bandiera bianca e nera prima di subire il sorpasso di Leclerc, nel frattempo rifattosi sotto. Una volta in testa, il monegasco prova ad allungare, ingaggiando un duello a distanza con Petecof a colpi di giri veloci. Le posizioni rimangono invariate e Leclerc salirà ancora una volta sul primo gradino del podio davanti a Petecof e Rasmussen, mentre Patrik Pasma vince il duello in casa KIC Motorsport con Konsta Lappalainen per la quarta posizione.
