The ex driver of the South American Formula 3 recognised that: ¨I complicated myself in the first race because the car wasn`t ok after the rain, and the track doesn`t has anything of grip. In the second competition I passed a lot of cars and I finished in a good position. The important is that we took some points for the championship¨

FIRST RACE

Bas Leinders obtained in Monza his second consecutive victory in the World Series. The driver of the KTR team led the race from the begining to the chequered flag.

SECOND RACE

The key of the second race was in the obligatory pit stop. The machanics of Montagny y Leinders made a fantastic work, while Zonta lost some importants seconds in the tyre change. The french driver never leave the first place, in spite of that Leinders was very close in the fight.
