A Race 2 to forget for Ghiotto in Spa


Luca Ghiotto couldn't keep momentum after yesterday's amazing performance which brought him to a deserved P6 finish in Spa-Francorchamps. On Sunday, the last day of the Belgian F.Renault 3.5 weekend, the Italian driver had to cope with unexpected odds that prevented him from taking a points finish that was well in his reach. In the morning qualifying session Luca was hampered by traffic, as slower cars ruined his fastest lap forcing him to a 9th row start.

In the race, ready to deliver another strong comeback drive, Luca had to change plans due to an issue with the car's pneumatic pump, which actually activates both gearbox and DRS system. The mechanic failure forced the talented Italian driver to park the car trackside, giving a bitter end to a weekend that despite this has proved Luca's talent once again.

Now Ghiotto is focused on the next challenge, the F.Renault 3.5 Russian round in Moscow, on 28-29 June.

Luca Ghiotto: Q2 -P18; R2 - Ritirato
"We could feel that luck wasn't on our side right from the morning qualifying session, as I hit traffic in the only peak lap of my tyres. Despite that we were quite positive looking to the race, because we knew that my pace was good and in Spa you can actually overtake, as I proved pretty clearly yesterday. Unfortunately I started having problems with both gear changes and DRS since the very first laps, and as the race progressed it only got worse. Eventually I was forced to stop the car with five laps to go, but there was nothing we could have done anyway with such an handicap".
