Guan Yu Zhou scored his third Formula 4 victory at Monza circuit. This is a perfect event for Chinese driver as he makes a hat-trick and gets +5 additional points for the best combined qualifying sessions time.
Zhou started his 3rd race well unlike Lando Norris who was overtook by Robert Shwartzmand and Ralf Aron. However, there was not enough space in Prima Variante for both of these drivers so Shwartzman and Aron touched each other and went out of the track.
Both drivers lost several positions but were able to continue the race. In the next chicane Aron touched another two drivers but his car appeared to be strong enough to continue the race again. There was a pile-up behind the leaders which brought safety car on track.
Aron started to climb back to top after the restart. Shwartzman had mechanical problems as his engine was overheated during the safety car period. It took him 3 laps to bring things back to normal. Shwartzman also overtook several opponents and finished his race at P4.
The top 3 drivers were Guan Yu Zhou, Ralf Aron and Lando Norris.
Thanks to his triple victory Zhou became the new championship leader, he is now ahead of his teammate Aron in the rankings. Robert Shwartzman took some good points, he is now 3rd in the driver standings.
Most of the Formula 4 drivers will come back on track in a few days during ADAC Formel 4 second event of the year. The races will be held at Red Bull Ring circuit in Austria.
