Argentinean driver Franco Colapinto became the dominant force in the Spanish Formula 4 Championship in Valencia, which hosted the fourth round of the 2019 season this weekend. The Tatuus-Abarth carrying the FA Racing by Drivex colors had no rival with Colapinto performing in customary faultless form.
Colapinto had finished in the top-three in both free practice sessions and led the way in Q1 for Drivex. The Argentinean racer secured the pole position with a lap time of 1:33.056.
On Saturday afternoon, Colapinto couldn’t make a good start and dropped to fourth when the lights went out. But he moved past Glenn van Berlo still on lap 1, Carles Martínez on lap four and moved into the lead after overtaking Kilian Meyer. After 17 laps, Colapinto took the checkered flag in first place.
On Sunday, Colapinto secured another pole position for race 2 with his lap of 1:33.080 in Q2, almost half a second quicker than van Berlo. The Argentinean moved up to first on lap 2 and pulled away for his second triumph in Valencia.
Race 3 was another fertile ground for Drivex with Colapinto second on the starting grid. Franco took the lead after passing van Berlo when the lights went out. Colapinto crossed the finish line in first place after 16 laps.
