After training on Friday, several riders were puzzled that it would be difficult to overtake in Mugello. At the same time, the DRS zone will not improve the situation – according to Antonio Giovinazzi, it starts too late.
Antonio Giovinazzi: “Our goal is to get to the second part of qualification. Judging by the second training session, the starting position is especially important here, because it will be difficult to overtake in the race. Therefore, in the third workout, we need to focus on preparing for the qualification – it is important to do our job well in this session, and then drive the first lap without any problems.
I was prepared for the tires to perform slightly worse, but in the end everything was fine. Hot weather is expected on Sunday, so let’s see what awaits us. But the main problem in the race will be related to the pursuit of opponents. It is very difficult to overtake here, especially since the DRS zone starts too late. We’ll see.
Of course, on Saturday, the task is to get into the second qualifying session, and then we’ll see. It is important to be closer to the front rows, so you need to better qualify, and on Sunday you have a good start and pass the first lap normally. “
