Another round at Magione for the title fight this weekend

16/05/2007 - Two weeks after the exciting weekend of Misano, the "Campionato Italiano Formula 3" circus will reach Umbria, racing at Magione track.

Mauro Massironi got last year's victory in race one, while Davide Rigon obtained the highest place of the podium in race two. The top of the classification is this year quite uncertain with Paolo Maria Nocera having an advantage on the trio Marchese-Lopez-Crestani. The Mexican driver of the Alan Racing team will be absent, and this will give a good opportunity to his opponents.

This is the weekend programme:

Friday 18 May 2007
14.00 - 15.00 Free practice
16.30 - 17.00 Free practice

Saturday 19 May 2007
09.40 - 10.10 Free practice
14.00 - 14.45 Qualify

Sunday 20 May 2007
09.50 Race 1 (23' + 1 lap)
16.10 Race 2 (23' + 1 lap)

Angelo Corbetta (Team Minardi by Corbetta, Team Principal)
"We are ready and motivated for this racing weekend. At Misano we were quite unlucky and we got home a little bit disappointed, but the team has the character to look forward and to find new motivations to always be at the top. The F3 Italian Championship is tight, a lot of drivers can aim to the victory and when you get on track you need to be at the 100% of your possibilities to be ahead the opponents. The season is quite long and I hope that from this weekend on we will start to achieve the successes that we did not obtain so far".

Giorgio Faccioni (Scuderia NT, Team Manager)
"Three things are needed to win: a good driver, a good car and a bit of good luck. We did not get what we hoped for so far. Our driver has been awarded a year and half ago at Motor Show's caschi d'oro and I am pretty sure I did not lose his driving skills; the 2007 car has been improved with a lot of technical details and the team had the past season to get acquaintance with it; the good luck is a component hardly affectable. The hope is that the mix of these three components will reach the right equilibrium soon to give us some good satisfaction".

Gabriele Lucidi (Lucidi Motors, Team Manager)
"We lead the championship with a discreet advantage but we will not delude ourselves. The quality of our opponents does not allow us to drop the guard and we will need to keep the concentration high on our work until the last race. As seen in Misano, everything can happen on track. After the podium scored two weeks ago by De Marco I hope in another good performance from his side. He is a talented young driver and he is toddling pretty well in Formula 3".
