Coloni Motorsport on top in the qualifying of the fourth race of the Italian F.3 with Marco Bonanomi and Christian Montanari

Coloni Motorsport conquered today the first row of the grid in the fourth race of the Italian F.3 in Imola: Marco Bonanomi in facts set the second time in qualifying in 1.47,278, his best result in qualifying on a single-seater car. That's not all: Bonanomi today gave to Lola-Dome the best performance so far of the all-new F106 Mugen in qualifying.

A very good result for Christian Montanari (RSM) too, that Sunday will start from the fifth position with a time of 1.47,639.

Coloni Motorsport is confident for the Sunday race, thanks to the great progresses made by the car, which continues to improve race after race. Sunday the race is scheduled on h.11 GMT (h.12 Local Time).

Marco Bonanomi, driver: "I'm very happy with today result, this was an excellent qualifying. I'm only a bit upset because I was in pole until the last minutes, but the first row is always a great result. The whole team worked well since Friday and then I'm confident for tomorrow: the car is very competitive"

Christian Montanari, driver: "In the afternoon we improved the morning session time and then I'm happy, unfortunately we didn't earn further positions, maybe because we started to lap too late and so we lose the possibility to improve again. We are waiting for the Sunday warm up, but I'm already confident for the race: I saw a good and consistent progress of the car and this gives us good hopes for Sunday"

Paolo Coloni, Team Principal: "I'm very satisfied with the performance of the car and drivers that are growing quickly and constantly. I'm sure that we will see a great race tomorrow".
