2017 Formula 4 Italian Championship
Vallelunga - Race Preview
The Vallelunga circuit is set for the third round of the 2017 Italian Formula 4 Championship and lining-up with the pairing of Marcus Armstrong and Enzo Fittipaldi, the Prema team is looking forward with confidence to the first weekend of summer on a track that saw them score two wins and three more podium finishes in 2016.
Both Armstrong and Fittipaldi will hold the Ferrari Driver Academy banner and have prepared well for the round on the technical Roman circuit.
The 16-year-old New Zealander has scored three podium finishes in the opening couple of rounds and is now ready to go for the most important trophy, while his 15-year-old Brazilian team-mate impressed so far in his rookie year and is determined to continue a really positive path.
Grazia Troncon - Team Manager
“We line-up at Vallelunga confident in our drivers and team. In the previous races we saw that we can compete at the highest levels, and with a little more luck that we haven’t had so far I’m sure that we will be able to become a threat for wins very soon. Marcus is looking increasingly competitive while Enzo has been impressive so far in his rookie season. We really look forward to Vallelunga.”
