Ghiotto Raises The Bar As FRenault 3.5 Testing Draws To A Close

Quick on new rubber, very consistent in the race simulation: the third and final day of F.Renault 3.5 pre-season testing in Jerez was a very positive one for Luca Ghiotto, who proved once again to have what it takes to fight on a par with the best drivers in the championship.

The Italian rookie, who had experienced quite an unlucky Tuesday, fought back today with a staggering performance on fresh tyres that saw him clock an amazing 1’26”272, just three tenths off today’s best laptime. Luca could have been even quicker, but a mistake on the track’s last corner cost him a few tenths and possibly the top spot in the timesheet. As much as Ghiotto would have liked to see his name shine on top of the timing screen, he is well aware that that’s not so important in testing, not as important as knowing that the potential for a top-notch performance is there, just waiting to be unleashed at the right time. Today Luca proved that beyond any doubt, and now the Italian talent is reafy for the start of the season, scheduled for 12-13 April on the mighty “Autodromo di Monza”.

Luca Ghiotto: S1 - P12; S2 - P21
"Yesterday hadn’t been such a great day for me but I’m really happy with today’s outcome. In the morning session I could finally assess my pace on new rubber and I was satisfied with what I saw. Not only my quickest laptime was just 0”3 shy of today’s best, but without a mistake I made on the last corner the ‘virtual pole’ would have been in my reach. The race simulation went well too, especially considering it was my first ever on this car; despite that I managed to match the pace of an experienced driver such as my team-mate Fantin, who is at his second season in F.Renault 3.5. Looking to Monza’s season opener I feel confident, knowing that I have what it takes to fight on a par with the quickest drivers on the grid”.
