in attack. On the traditional circuit in Imola, the junior drivers contested a total of four races. In addition to the usual three races, a lost run from Misano was made up. This took place on Sunday evening on the demanding Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari.

Even in dry conditions, the former Formula One circuit presented the BWT Mücke Motorsport drivers with challenges. Due to the layout, even small mistakes are severely punished, treacherous curbs and gravel beds lurk everywhere. In addition, the track strains the formula cars, so it is easy to damage.

Therefore, only the positions (********************************************************************************************) and 26. Alatalo was successful with two (**********************************************************************************************************). Ranks do not retrieve his full potential. Zanotti qualified in the two sessions (***************************************************************************************************) and 25. Thus, all three pilots went with a mortgage in the race.

But they fought bravely forward. The best result Alatalo achieved with sixth place in the first race. In the following two races, the Finn retired and closed the weekend with a (******************************************************************************************). Place in the fourth race.

In the overall standings of all drivers, the Paraguyaer ranked seventh, one position ahead of teammate Alatalo. Zanotti collected points for the rookie championship for the second time in his debut season in motorsport.

The next race weekend in the Italian Formula 4 is the (********************************************************************************************************************). to 06.

BWT Mücke Motorsport will be at the last two ADAC Formula 4 season stages at the Hockenheimring ((***************************************************************************************************************). to 14 September) and the Sachsenring (27. to 29. September) at the start.

Frank Lucke (Team Leader Formula 4): “Imola was not an easy weekend for us. You can not test enough in advance because the course is very demanding. The track is in and of itself a dream for every driver with the wide gravel beds and the original kind. William Alatalo has made an impressive catch-up in the first race. This shows once again that he is absolutely competitive in race trim. Unfortunately, a rather moderate qualifying affected the overall performance of our pilots. Joshua Dürksen slightly damaged his car in the first qualifying session on the high curbs, which also affected the second session. So the starting position for the races was not that easy. We are satisfied with the development of Erwin Zanotti. Judging by the fact that he has no karting experience, he has increased enormously over the season. He bravely goes into duels, wins them and sometimes he loses them. And most importantly, he finishes the races. It's all part of the learning process. ”
