COLAPINTO SCORES SECOND WIN OF THE SEASON

Franco Colapinto delivered a strong performance at Motorland Aragón with taking his second win of the 2019 Formula 4 Spain Championship.

On Saturday, Colapinto led the way for Drivex in the free practice session and headed into qualifying as a clear pole position contender. After a closely-fought Q1 session, the driver racing under FA Racing by Drivex colors qualified on the front row with a lap time of 1:51.388, a mere 75 thousandths of a second slower than the pole position time.

When the lights went out, Colapinto made a great race start to take the lead. But Shihab Al Habsi retook the first place after with Colapinto remaining in his slipstream until four laps to go. With a nice move on the outside, the Argentinean driver took the first place once again and pulled away for his second triumph of the season.

On Sunday, despite Colapinto posted the pole position for Race 3 he was demoted to the back of the grid.

But Race 2 was scheduled just before and Colapinto couldn’t make a good start and dropped from second on the grid to last in the order. But he had lost more than 30 seconds and it was an impossible mission to catch the rest of the field. Finally he ended up 14th

Race 3 saw an impressive display of Colapinto’s talent. From 15th of the grid, he had already moved up to ninth after just one lap. In lap 7 he was running in fourth and took the second place before another rival hit his car and damaged his front wing. It ruined his charging drive and lost several places and couldn’t score more points for the championship.
