A double engagement for Abarth this weekend: the Italian and German F4 championships powered by Abarth, on the Monza and Red Bull Ring tracks
This weekend, 42 drivers from 21 different countries will be behind the wheel of the F4 cars powered by the Abarth engine. The fifth event in the Italian F4 Championship powered by Abarth is scheduled at Monza, plus round 5 of the FIA ADAC F4 Championship powered by Abarth will be taking place at the Red Bull Ring in Austria.
Both of these circuits play host to Formula 1 races and are therefore an ideal training ground for the young drivers from the world of karting, whose ambitions are to become professional racing drivers.
At Monza, the ‘Temple of Speed’, Italy’s Gabriele Minì (Prema Powerteam) will attempt to defend his leadership in the championship against challenges from his compatriots Andrea Rosso (Cram Motorsport) and Francesco Pizzi (Van Amersfoort Racing). To date, Minì has gained 196 points, giving him a considerable lead over Rosso, on 121, in a battle for the top of the podium with Pizzi (now on 117 points). The schedule for the weekend at Monza includes two qualifying sessions on Saturday, October 17th at 9:50 am and 10:15 am, followed by Race 1 at 3:15 pm. Sunday, Race2 will take place at 10:00 am, with Race3 at 3:50 pm. Live streaming on www.acisport.it.
