Free Practice 2, it’s Prema again with Antonelli
Followed by Wharton and Camara
Heavy rain again in the evening on the second free practice session, the last of the opening day of the ACI Racing Weekend in the heart of the Motor Valley. In addition to the rain also the temperature of air and track that drops, with the times that consequently rise. However, the result does not change, the fastest lap time once again goes to Andrea Kimi Antonelli, Prema Racing, who excels in all the sessions of the day. Still following him are his two teammates Anthony James Wharton and Rafael Camara, who set, in this order, the second and third best times. So, once again a Prema top 3 made up of Rookie drivers, the third time today.
Fourth best time for the Irishman Alexander Dunne, US Racing, with a gap of +0.927 is the only one to stay under the second, then followed by his teammate Marcus Amand. Sixth and seventh place again for Prema Racing with the Dane Conrad Laursen followed by Charlie Wurz. Then Kacper Sztuka, US Racing’s Polish driver, and his teammate Nikhil Bohra.
The top 10 was then completed by Cram Motorsport, with Ricardo Escotto, Mexican driver at his debut on the track of the Autodromo Enzo and Dino Ferrari in Imola, who immediately faced difficult conditions.
Conditions that will remain difficult, according to the weather forecast, also for the rest of the weekend, with rain expected already in the morning qualifying – on track at 9.00 and 9.25 in two 15′ sessions – and then in race 1 (30′ +1) at 14.55.
