Will-Stevens-FR-35-Monza-2014.jpg

 

Will Stevens (Strakka Racing) has become the first victor this year in the Formula Renault 3.5 Series. On the Autodromo di Monza, the Englishman put in a stellar performance to score his maiden win in the category. The Caterham Racing Academy driver was joined on the podium by two newcomers, Roberto Merhi (Zeta Corse) and Pierre Gasly (Arden Motorsport), at the end of a spectacular and intense race.

 

After dominating free-practice on Friday, Carlos Sainz (DAMS) took the pole on Saturday. The Spaniard set a best time of 1’33’’235, four minutes from the end of the shortened session due to the spin of Zoël Amberg (AVF). William Buller (Arden Motorsport) was next, followed by Luca Ghiotto (International Draco Racing), Will Stevens (Strakka Racing) and Roberto Merhi. The DAMS driver got stuck on the starting grid when the cars were released for the formation lap, as did Matthieu Vaxivière (Lotus). William Buller and Luca Ghiotto both had sub-par starts, allowing Will Stevens to move into the lead ahead of Roberto Merhi and Pierre Gasly. At the end of the opening lap, an accident involving Marco Sørensen (Tech 1 Racing) and Jazeman Jaafar (ISR) brought out the safety car.

 

The race went back to green on lap five. Will Stevens maintained his lead, while Roman Mavlanov (Zeta Corse) passed Luca Ghiotto to join the leaders. Five laps later the Russian was then lost his position to William Buller, before suffering many attacks from a rampaging pack of cars.

 

Will Stevens continued to add to his advantage, taking a comfortable win ahead of Merhi and Pierre Gasly. William Buller took fourth place from Nikolay Martsenko in the waning moments of the race. In the pack further back, the action was on the boil just until the chequered flag with Oliver Rowland (Fortec Motorsports) taking sixth place ahead of Sergey Sirotkin (Fortec Motorsports), Zoël Amberg, Meindert van Buuren (Pons Racing) and Matias Laine (Strakka Racing).

 

Will Stevens :It’s been a long time coming. It is the best way to begin the championship, as opposed to last year. I have worked a lot on the starts and today it paid off. After the safety car period, I pushed the pace to build a gap. We now have to work on our single lap pace.”

 

Roberto Merhi :After two seasons away from open-wheel, it is a world that I am rediscovering as the driving style is so different. After we struggled in tests, I was more competitive in qualifying. I got a good start, but it was not perfect. Despite good pace, I made mistakes in trying to reduce the gap to Will, who was able to pull away.”

 

Pierre Gasly : ”I am pleased to be where I expected to be. I put in a very good start, but in trying to get around Roberto, it was very tight and I preferred to go straight. In coming back on to the track, he was a little faster than I was. I made a few small errors during my fight with Martsenko, but I am happy with this result.”

Le previsioni di clima pienamente primaverile, annunciate anche per domani, sono state rispettate al Circuito Internazionale 7 Laghi di Castelletto di Branduzzo (PV). Ugualmente rispettate anche le previsioni di spettacolo in pista, offerto da piloti galvanizzati dall’impegno nelle manche di qualifica, che si rivelerà importante a fine manifestazione: dopo le Finali di domani, che si annunciano altrettanto combattute, le classifiche generali potranno essere tutte da riscrivere in questa seconda tappa della WSK Super Master Series.

Kozlinski e Ardigo’ Polemen in KZ2.

Con due vittorie di manche il francese Arnaud Kozlinski (Intrepid-TM-Bridgestone) si è riservato la pole position della Prefinale A, dove troverà al suo fianco il belga Rick Dreezen (Zanardi-Parilla-Bridgestone), autore di una vittoria. La seconda fila sarà occupata dal belga Jonathan Thonon (Praga-Parilla-Bridgestone) e dal ceco Jan Midrla (Birel-TM-Bridgestone). Nella Prefinale B la pole è andata al bresciano Marco Ardigò (Tony Kart-Vortex-Bridgestone), anche lui con due vittorie al suo attivo, accompagnato in prima fila dal compagno di squadra, il romano Flavio Camponeschi. Alle loro spalle scatteranno il ceco Patrik Hajek (Praga-Parilla-Bridgestone) e l’olandese Bas Lammers (FK-Parilla-Bridgestone). Quest’ultimo ha perso una vittoria di manche per una penalizzazione di 5’, inflittagli dopo un contatto con Ardigò. Altro vincitore di manche è stato oggi il trevigiano Paolo De Conto, che però, rallentato da un ritiro, si avvierà dalla quarta fila della Prefinale B.


Norris rilancia e va in pole con Lorandi nelle Prefinali KF.

Lando Norris (FA Kart-Vortex-Dunlop) sembra aver imboccato la strada giusta: dopo aver segnato il miglior tempo in prova, l’inglese ha vinto a tappeto tutte le manche di oggi, dominando il ranking penalità e aggiudicandosi la pole position in Prefinale A. Ma attenzione a Alessio Lorandi (Tony Kart-TM-Dunlop), secondo in gara solo nel confronto con Norris ma imbattibile nelle altre manche: al bresciano va la pole della Prefinale B e tutto sembra annunciare una Finale molto combattuta per domani pomeriggio. Piazzamenti importanti per il finlandese Niko Kari (Tony Kart-Vortex-Dunlop), che scatterà al fianco di Norris. Entrambi avranno in seconda fila il polacco Karol Basz (Tony Kart-Vortex-Dunlop), leader di classifica, e l’indiano Jehan Daruvala (FA Kart-Vortex-Dunlop). Accanto a Lorandi, in Prefinale B, sarà invece l’olandese Martijn Van Leeuwen (Zanardi-Parilla-Dunlop), oggi in grado di imporsi in una manche. In questa gara la seconda fila sarà occupata dal russo Nikita Mazepin (Tony Kart-Vortex-Dunlop) e dal napoletano Felice Tiene (CRG-TM-Dunlop).


Risultato aperto in KFJ. Saranno le due manche in programma domani mattina ad assegnare la pole position delle Prefinali. Non sono infatti bastate le otto gare disputate oggi per portare in evidenza un pilota in particolare e poter azzardare qualche pronostico. I protagonisti sono stati tanti e ben cinque piloti si sono alternati alla vittoria. Il bresciano Leonardo Lorandi (Tony Kart-TM-Vega), il tedesco David Beckmann (Tony Kart-Vortex-Vega e il venezuelano Mauricio Baiz (Exprit-Vortex-Vega), poleman dopo le prove ufficiali, hanno firmato ciascuno due successi. Una affermazione a testa l’hanno guadagnata il russo Alexander Vartanyan (Tony Kart-Vortex-Vega) e l’americano Logan Sargeant (FA Kart-Vortex-Vega).


Serravalle e Gafar sugli scudi nella 60 Mini.

Giornata intensa quella dei giovanissimi piloti della 60 Mini che hanno prima disputato le prove ufficiali e poi cinque delle sei manche totali previste per la categoria. Il crono più veloce lo ha fatto segnare il malese Muizz Gafar (Hero-LKE-Vega) che poi è andato a vincere due gare. Due manche se le è aggiudicate anche il canadese Antonio Serravalle (Tony Kart-LKE-Vega) mentre una vittoria è stata conquistata dal barese Nicola Abrusci (Tony Kart-LKE-Vega). Domani mattina l’ultima manche in programma che decreterà i polemen delle due Prefinali.

Always at the front, Kozlinski (Intrepid / TM) won again taking his position as leader in KZ2 after the heats of the WSK Super Master Series at Castelletto. Although Bas Lammers (Formula K / Parilla) proved more effective, a clash with Marco Ardigo (Tony Kart / Vortex) in the final heat earned him a penalty that gave him 8th. Ardigo managed to finish fifth despite this and is in second place in the intermediate standings ahead of Rick Dreezen (Zanardi / Parilla), Flavio Camponeschi (Tony Kart / Vortex) in 4th, Jonathan Thonon (Praga / Parilla) 5th and Patrik Hajek (Praga / Parilla) 6th.


Without an engine failure, Paolo De Conto (Birel / TM) could have been in the top three instead of 14th position. Ben Hanley (ART GP / TM) lost a lot at the start in the last heat when a rival struggled to get going. Davide Fore (CRG / TM) moved up from 16th in qualifying to 11th place, just ahead of Douglas Lundberg (Alpha / TM), who was recovering from 20th in qualifying.

Already fastest in qualifying, young Lando Norris (FA Kart / Vortex) seems to have found his feet in KF. Undefeated in his three qualifying heats, logically he is in the lead in the intermediate ranking ahead of Alessio Lorandi (Tony Kart / TM) who recovered well from his 6th place in qualifying. Niko Kari (Tony Kart / Vortex), in third, is tied on points with Martijn Van Leeuwen (Zanardi / Parilla) up from 11th in qualifying. The Tony Boys Karol Basz and Nikita Mazepin (Tony Kart / Vortex) are in 5th and 6th, while their French teammate Gabriel Aubry (Tony Kart / Vortex) had a crash and two mechanical problems, which was unlucky for him. Callum Ilott (Zanardi / Parilla), 3rd in qualifying, also had to retire twice and is in 32nd place, a long way from what he is used to. Julien Darras (Energy / TM) took a fifth position and is 23rd.

At the end of the 8 heats run on Friday and Saturday, Mauricio Baiz (Exprit / Vortex), polesitter after qualifying, continues to lead the KF-Junior category at the second round of the WSK Super Master Series taking place in the sun at Castelletto. Two heats remain on Sunday morning for groups A, B, C and D, with E having already completed their heats. This information is still unofficial.


Logan Sargeant (FA Kart / Vortex) has gained ground with a win as has David Beckmann (Tony Kart / Vortex), but with two wins Leonardo Lorandi (Tony Kart / TM) is just ahead. Consistent but not very interestingly, Enaam Ahmed (FA Kart / Vortex) took three second places. Daniel Ticktum (Zanardi / Parilla) had a relatively bad result after a failed first heat. Despite a complicated third heat, Bejamin Lessennes (Tony Kart / Parilla) remains in the game, especially as he has already completed his four races. More to come on Sunday morning ...
