A Mistake Hampers Ghiotto On His Monte-Carlo Debut

Luca Ghiotto got off to a difficult start in Monaco, where the F.Renault 3.5 championship is holding the 3rd round of the championship. On his maiden outing on the most glamorous and difficult track of the WSR calendar, the talented Italian paid the price of inexperience ending in the wall on his 12th lap, after that the first few times he had posted had left a good impression on the paddock.

Pushing hard, Luca missed the braking point by a few inches at the Sainte Devote corner, but at such an unforgiving turn that meant that he couldn't stop his car before hitting the armco, damaging the front left suspension. It was a pity, because Luca's pace up to that point had been very quick for a rookie, and it would have become even better with another ten laps or so.

Unfortunately, the crash means that Ghiotto will head into Qualifying lacking mileage compared to his rivals: both him and Draco Racing will need a flawless job to overcome the odds.

Luca Ghiotto
“I'm really sorry for the mistake, especially because it prevented me from putting more miles under my belt. On any other track, going a bit wide in a corner would have meant bouncing hard on a kerb, here it means ending up in the wall. It's Monte-Carlo, it's an unforgiving track and it's fine, it's what makes it special. Maybe emotion played a role too, this morning driving through corners that up to Thursday I had just seen on TV left me speechless, especially the Tunnel.
Now I have to focus on Qualifying, today's mistake means that I'll start on the back foot, but I'm pretty sure I'll manage to recover well".
