Monza: await mounting for the final round Corbetta Competizioni will bring on track Michael Dalle Stelle, at his comeback with the team after last year's experience, alongside the official driver Riccardo Cinti.

At Gloria Pro Team everything is set to finis the debut season with a good result, before aiming at newer and more important objectives in 2010.

Both races will be covered live by Nuvolari (SKY Italy 218).

The Italian Formula 3 championship is back on track from tomorrow on at Monza for the concluding round of the season that will be crucial to crown the 2009 champion as well as to decide the name of the three drivers that will take part in the Formula One test at the wheel of the F60 Ferrari.

The classification leader, Daniel Zampieri (BVM-Target) will have the favours of forecasts thanks to the fourteen points lead on his closest opponent, Daniel Campos-Hull (Prema Powerteam). To get crowned at the end of race one, the Roman driver will have to obtain the fifth seasonal win but he will also have to guard his back from the attacks from his team mate Marco Zipoli, who despite being sixteen points adrift, can still aim at the title.

Determination is not lacking at Prema Powerteam, where in the last weeks men worked around the clock to put Daniel Campos-Hull in the condition to recover the gap from the leader. A crucial role could be played also by Francesco Castellacci, determined to finish the season with a success.

The ruling champion team, Lucidi Motors will try with Sergio Campana to defend the title obtained last year with Mirko Bortolotti: an almost perfect weekend will be needed to recover the twenty-one points gap but the team will try hard, thanks also to a growing Edoardo Liberati and to the experience of Francesco Prandi. Important will also be the fight for the rookies' trophy where Campana is second seven points adrift Zampieri.

For Alan Racing Team, the objective will be to take Pablo Sanchez-Lopez to the third final place, a difficult challenge but definitely not impossible that excites the team manager Alberto Locatelli. Good expectations for the performance of Angelo Fabrizio Comi, crucial throughout the season in the development of the M-09 Mygale.

RC Motorsport and Stephane Richelmi have constantly been among protagonists in the second part of the season: the driver from Monaco lacked a bit the victory to which they will certainly aim at in Monza, to award the team the second seasonal victory.

Salvatore Cicatelli and team Ghinzani will attack to get the top place of the podium, while Alessandro Cicognani, currently eleventh in classification, will have the objective to finish the season within the top ten.
