Supremacy of Piscopo in race one at Mugello

Edoardo Piscopo:

"I am very satisfied, we started the season in the best way with a pole and a victory. With Ghinzani team I have done a lot of work, started this winter and that after a lot of efforts took us to the successes obtained today. I hope to conclude the weekend, tomorrow, in the best way: I will start from the pole but the victory will not be an easy target."

Mirko Bortolotti:

"In qualifying I found a lot of traffic that forced me to stay longer on track to find a clean lap. In this way I wore a lot my tyres and this penalized me during the race. Without any lap scored during winter tests, I still lack a bit a complete feeling with the car, therefore I can be satisfied by the second place scored today."

Nico Verdonk:

"After the start, at the first corner, I found myself sandwiched between two cars and I did not have any chance to get any positions. Then, lap after lap, I increased my rhythm up to the third position. I had a lot of understeering, but both the car and the track were completely new for me therefore we have a big improvement margin."

Edoardo Piscopo won as a ruler the first race of the Italian Formula 3 2008 Championship. The Ghinzani driver started from the pole position and kept the leadership of the race from the first to the last lap without being attempted by his opponents. On the podium Mirko Bortolotti and Nico Verdonck too.

In the CSAI National Trophy, victory obtained by Angelo Fabrizio Comi that preceded Ivan Tramontozzi.

Next event: Mugello - 11/05/2008
