MISANO: DOUBLE RECOVERY FOR MICHELA CERRUTI IN THE SEASON OPENER OF THE ITALIAN GT CHAMPIONSHIP

Double placing into points for Michela Cerruti at Misano in the opening weekend of the Italian GT Championship, conditioned by bad weather on Sunday during qualifying and race one.

During the thirty minutes of qualifying, the driver of AeffeM, as the crew-mate Francesca Linossi, decided not to push too much under the rain in such a way to avoid risking her F340 Ferrari, finishing the session with the thirteenth time (2'05.731).

During race one, the Italian driver showed all her determination after a good start and she recovered several positions before handing the car out to Francesca Linossi, final fifth under the chequered flag.

Similar plot in race two when the all-women couple has been protagonist of another thrilling recovery from the seventeenth position up to the seventh final place; a contact with an opponent in the last kilometres of the race prevented Michela to cross the finish line sixth.

Michela Cerruti:

"The rain fallen in the weekend conditioned in a determinant way the two qualifying sessions, especially for two rookies like us; we faced both races with the right spirit anyway and this allowed us to obtain two results that are certainly positive.

"Francesca has been amazing, both with her speed in track and with the engineers. We form a competitive crew and I believe we will manage to get several satisfactions throughout the season".

The next round of the Italian GT Championship is scheduled for 9 May at Vallelunga (Rome).
