Maranello, 2 August – Lance Stroll took just one flying lap to go fastest in today’s qualifying at Magione, for the fourth round of the Italian Formula 4 Championship. The Canadian Ferrari Driver Academy student will start the first race from pole, as the only man to get under the 1 minute 9 seconds barrier with a 1.08.933. He was second fastest in the session to decide the grid for Race 3, when times were slower because the yellow flags were out. Pole went to his Prema Powerteam team-mate Brandon Maisano (1.09.083.) In both sessions, Lance took the five points that go with pole, as Maisano is ineligible for points in this series. Tomorrow, the Umbrian track sees a very busy day with no less than three races on the cards, the second one featuring a grid made from reversing the top ten in the finishing order of Race 1.
Like fellow FDA student Raffaele Marciello, Antonio Fuoco also had his 2015 plans confirmed today, with the announcement that he will make his GP3…
It has been announced today that Raffaele Marciello will race in GP2 with the Trident team in 2015.
Lance Stroll’s foray into the Toyota Racing Series, has got off to a very auspicious start.
