Facu Regalia leaves Franciacorta on the top
Facu Regalia was on top form at Franciacorta and at the wheel of a Team Ghinzani's Dallara F309 FPT he ended the day just a tenths shy of the Italian circuit record, though the track temperatures were very low.
Facu Regalia keeps evolving in Campionato Italiano Formula 3 and impressed again the Italian team in a difficult circuit that was unknown for him. The Spanish-Argentinean driver showed a strong pace during all day, something that pleased himself and Team Ghinzani. "I was just one tenth off Daniel Mancinelli record, but he achieved his time in May, with a good track temperature, and today, sometimes, there was just -2C, which prevents the tyres of reaching their optimum temperature range. Besides, there were cars from inferior categories and was hard to find a clean lap", said the nineteen years old driver, who added: "with used tires I was just half second slower than Mancinelli, who was the Team Ghinzani's best driver in this year championship".
The Italian outfit way of work impressed Facu Regalia, who tried different set-ups. "The team was fantastic. We experimented numerous solutions for the Dallara and I felt very comfortable with the car. I'm very happy with the work that we made and I think that the team also, because they congratulate me in the end of the day", said the Spanish-Argentinean driver.
Facu Regalia expects to confirm his 2011 program as soon as possible, but, now, he will take a break to celebrate Christmas.
