A disappointing run in the Ardennes for Festante
SPA – The fourth event of the F4 French Championship FFSA Academy, held in Spa on June 10th and 11th, ended up with a negative balance for Aldo Festante, who scored his best finish in Race 2 (9th). The lack of competitiveness of the car made racing against other drivers a devil of a job.
The performance never came over the course of the entire weekend, started with a bad Quali which has then affected all the three races. Despite Aldo managed to stand an epic battle with Marvin Klein in Race 1, and he made a positive recovery in Race 2, from 13th to 9th.
“I simply feel disappointed because I expected something more not only from myself but mainly from the car, which has never been competitive during the weekend. So, I did not understand where my limit was on this track. After the test we had in Le Mans a couple of weeks ago I hoped to come here and have none of the technical problems I faced this year in this championship, however it looks like we basically got back to the starting point. It was an empty weekend. I’ll now focus on Vallelunga so because all I want now is to keep on my positive experience with DR Formula in the Italian F4 Championship”.
Next event will take place at Vallelunga on the 25th of June for the third race weekend of the Italian F4 Championship.
