Italian F4: Disappointing weekend for Joao Vieira

The fourth round of the Italian Championship F.4 powered by Abarth was less rewarding than expected.

10 points were chalked up thanks to a fifth place in Race-1 but Race-2 was compromised by a mistake and by contact at the first corner, which put an end to the race.

In Race-3 the Antonelli Motorsport driver had to settle for a thirteenth place, for a second mistake at the first corner, and the loss of more than ten positions inevitably affected the final result.

“It has been a weekend in which I have not achieved much in terms of results and points and I regret that, but it has been very important in terms of the experience I have gained”, Joao Vieira comments.

“It was an intense weekend, concentrated in just two days of competition and characterized by some inexperience mistakes which affected all three races. I am sure that Joao will build on this experience and the summer break will be useful to recharge our batteries, giving us the strength to finish the season improving our performance, in a finale that promises to be intense”, the Manager Giovanni Minardi comments.

After the summer break, the second part of the season will start on the demanding track “Piero Taruffi” in Vallelunga, on the weekend of September 13th and 14th, 2014.
