F2 Monza- Day 1

We are back racing once more with Formula Two as they have just had their first day in Monza done! We have had a couple of changes to the grid this week, we saw Jake Hughes returning to HWA Racelab following an injury to Jack Aitken, while David Beckmann had swapped Charouz Racing System for Campos Racing with Enzo Fittipaldi stepping up from Formula 3 to take his place.

Free Practice-

Ticktum topped the charts in the free practice session this morning and for the second round in a row, he done a lap of 1:33.042 ahead of Pourchaire and Daruvala. It was then Beckmann and championship leader Piastri who closed off the top 5.

A Virtual Safety Car was needed with only 11 minutes on the clock as Roy Nissany had to pull onto the grass as he had smoke coming from the back of his DAMs, running however did resume with only five minutes left.


Qualifying showed us Piastri is on fire and wants to keep his championship lead! He grabs pole for the Feature Race on Sunday with a 1:32.199 ahead of Jehan Daruvala and Guanyu Zhou.

Somebody who shocked me was Ralph Boschung, he done an amazing lap in quali and he was near the top but with drivers doing more fast laps the order soon changed which pushed him down to P6.

Another one who shocked me is Lundgaard his starting in P19, I thought he would off been closer to the top 10, but as this is a track where there are opportunities to over take he could easily claw some points in hopefully!

As we have the results we now have our reverse grid for tomorrows first sprint race it see’s Beckmann on pole with Red Bull junior Juri Vips joining him on the front row.

Times for tomorrow-

Sprint Race 1- 7:50am (BST), 8:50am (CEST).

Sprint Race 2- 13:45pm (BST), 14:45pm (CEST).
