"I am very satisfied with the work done here in Lonato by all our guys, especially Marco, who finally managed to realize the weekend after a difficult start. On Sunday he did his best to recover many positions and managed to close the championship at the foot of the podium. Novices Olivieri, Bucci and Silvaggi are also very good. They shot with important chronometric results, taking the feeling with the material. Unfortunately, Alex came close to the Final, making some mistakes that are part of the game because he started running only 8 months ago. The excitement played a crucial role, but in the coming days we will be back on track for a few days of testing, ”says Andrea Pedrini with satisfaction.
