DR Formula claimed today a top 10 finish with Aldo Festante, in the first race of Italian F4 Championship powered by Abarth round four at the Mugello track. The 17-year-old Italian maintained the eight position from light to flag, scoring some points for the overall standings.

Indeed it was his team mate Artem Petrov who made an impressive race. Starting from the back of the grid after he crashed in Q1, the Russian racing driver was able to recover from 22th to finish ten places ahead. Petrov will start tomorrow from the fourth row in race two.

Brazilian rookie Felipe Branquinho finished 14th and secured the fourth position in the Rookie class.
