"After the revival of the Italian Championship and the good work done by CSAI in the last two seasons, has come for us the moment to come back in our country" these were the words of the team partners at the closing of this fundamental day. "It's the further challenge for Ombra: coming back in Italy to confirm in the Championship that saw our F3 debut and the victory. We don't want to do statements, as usual we let talk the results, aware that work, on track and out of it, always pays. We're very satisfied with Alberto Cerqui today's work, a talented young that in his first session on a F3 car did well leaving a good impression on the staff and completing the work with non mistakes despite the bad conditions on the track.
