Draco And Fantin Start With A Top 5 Performance On The Streets Of Monte-Carlo

Alarms set for early in the morning, and then at 7.30 AM all the F.Renault 3.5 cars lined-up in single file, out of the gates of the Monte Carlo Country Club, ready to start their engines and enter the track at 8.00. That was, as usual, the start of the WSR Monaco round, the most awaited and glamorous event of the Series calendar. On the treacherous street track, under the spotlights of the F.1 paddock, Draco Racing kicked-off one of the most difficult and peculiar weekends of the season in style, with a top 5 performance from Brazilian talent Pietro Fantin. At his second experience on the streets of Monaco, Pietro posted some very quick laps straight out of the box, remaining in the highest part of the timesheets for the whole session. At the end of it, the 1'25"369 that was his quickest time was worth P5, an amazing start that is in line with Draco's amazing record in the Principality, that includes a stunning win last year with Nico Muller.

Debuting in Monte-Carlo, Luca Ghiotto was very quick in finding the pace, showing both talent and the audacity needed to shine on such a track. Unluckily, on his 12th lap, Ghiotto missed the braking point by inches at the Sainte Devote corner and clipped the wall, damaging the front of his car. It was a real pity, especially as the crash prevented Luca from putting more miles under his belt before Qualifying.

Simone Giglio – Team Manager
“It was a very good session, especially with Fantin who didn't have any issue at all. This morning before jumping into the car we could see he was really calm and focused, and he proved that with quick laptimes and a flawless performance. We are disappointed with what happened to Luca: it's something that can happen to a rookie, especially here, but it's a pity because he was quick straight out of the box, with no fear whatsoever. The crash means that compared to the other drivers he lacks around ten laps, we hope this won't damage him too much in qualifying".
