Thanks to a fifth place in Race 2, and a 27th place finish for his rival Mick Schumacher, Siebert is the new champion of the Italian F4 Championship powered by Abarth Monza 30/10/2016 – The Venezuelan Sebastian Fernandez (Kfzteile24 Mücke Motorsport) was first across the line in Race 2 at Monza after a fantastic race with the Mexican Raul Guzman (DR Formula) and the Estonian Juri Vips (Prema Power Team). The three led at various stages of the race until Fernandez, just a few laps from the finish, pulled away to take a 1.7 second win. Just off the podium was the Italian Diego Bertonelli (Bhaitech) and the aforementioned Siebert. Sixth through to 10th place were; the Guatemalan Ian Rodriguez (DRZ Benelli), the Indian driver Kush Maini (BVM Racing), the Dutchman Leonard Hoogenboom (Cram Motorsport) and then the Chinese and Japanese drivers; Yi Yifei (Kfzteile24 Mucke Motorsport) and Marino Sato (Vincenzo Sospiri Racing) respectively.
The battle for the championship was effectively decided on lap 11, when Mick Schumacher was forced to enter the pits to replace a damaged front wing. However it was still no easy task for his rival Siebert, who, after starting on grid 8 was involved in numerous battles throughout the race which also saw his wing damaged but not to the point that he had to pit to replace it.
In the Rookie Trophy, first place went to overall Race 2 winner Sebastian Fernandez, ahead of Juri Vips, Rodriguez, Maini and Hoogenboom. The fight for the Rookie title will be decided in Race 2.
Fabienne Wohlwend (DR Formula) continued her good form on the Monza circuit, winning the Women’s Trophy, finishing 16th overall and 8th in the Rookie Trophy.
Race 2 results remain provisional and are subject to change.
Race 3 (18 minutes + 1 lap) will start at 16:30. On the website acisportitalia.it/f4/informazioni-risultati/1106/Monza/2016 the complete results of Race 2 are available.
