F2 Sprint Race review: Monza 2018

Charouz Racing System completed the tenth round of the FIA Formula 2 Championship at Monza in Italy strongly today as Antonio Fuoco converted his P20 grid slot into a P10 finish and team-mate Louis Delétraz put in a determined drive to complete just behind in P11.

The Czech team was keen to respond positively after a disappointing turn of events during Saturday’s Feature Race placed its cars down the grid for today’s 21-lap race on the ultra-fast Monza track.

Ferrari Driver Academy pilot Antonio was keen to make amends after he was disqualified from P8 in the Feature Race late on Saturday night for having a non-compliant throttle map on his car during the race.

Louis meanwhile, was denied the opportunity to score the result his pace...

Charouz Racing System earned a P13 finish from the FIA Formula 2 Feature Race at Monza in Italy on Saturday, thanks to a resolute performance from Louis Delétraz.

The ADSS-supported driver qualified in P10 but suffered early drama as the 30-lap race got underway beneath overcast skies.
