Ghiotto Just Shy Of The Podium In Monza Race 2

Luca Ghiotto went close to scoring the first podium of his season today, after a sensational drive that saw the Italian youngster climb through the field from 8th on the grid to take a deserved fourth place finish.

This time, unlike yesterday, Luca was amazing off the line and on the way to Turn 1 he chose to go right, on the inside. Doing so he passed four cars, and turned in the first chicane right on the tail of Sirotkin's car.

From then on Luca was in full control of the race, lapping on the same pace as the leaders and keeping Gasly at bay. Ghiotto's staggering pace allowed him to open up a two seconds gap on the Frenchman early in the race, and to manage that margin with ease lap after lap, responding with a quick laptime each and every time his rival tried to get closer. To Draco’s delight, Luca crossed the line in 4th place overall, a placement that also meant first place in the rookie classification, the icing on the cake of a great weekend.

Luca Ghiotto: Q2 - P8; R2 - P4
"With today's start I made up for yesterday's mistake: I got off really well, taking the right and passing four cars. I nearly managed to take Sirotkin too, but he closed the door and we touched lightly, with no damage to the cars. From then on I just managed the race, keeping an eye on the gap to Gasly and trying to save my tyres. It was under control, I had some issues only at the beginning with the full fuel tank, but lap after lap the car got better and better. It's a great way to start the season, I want to say thanks to the team for the amazing job they did. Now I want more, I'm looking forward to Motorland Aragon".
