Lisbon, 20 April 2021DR Formula had a bitter sweet Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine opener at Imola, in the same weekend of the Formula 1 Gran Premio del Made in Italy e dell’Emilia Romagna, when the Danilo Rossi’s squad fielded two cars for Emidio Pesce and Brad Benavides.The Italian started with the 18th quickest time in the second of two qualifying sessions, while the American finishd 20th in Q1 ahead of his team-mate. Both the drivers showed an increasing pace, despite a gearbox problem stopped Pesce in Saturday’s race 1 with only three laps to go, after Benavides went off to the gravel in the early stages.In race 2 Pesce continued to suffer some gearbox problems that put him to the back of the field. It was a shame as the 19-year-old Milan-based racer had the right potential to enter easely the top-15.In the second race Benavides recovered well to secure the 14th position over 29 cars, that is the team’s best result of this first round of the season.Next Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine stop will be in three weeks at Barcelona on 7th/9th May, also alongside the Formula 1 GP.
