Bearman also wins race 3 and is increasingly leading

The British reached 8 victories in a row and lengthen the gap in the standings. Bedrin and Fornaroli again on the podium

Brick after brick Oliver Bearman is building his route to the 2021 title of the Italian f.4 Championship Powered by Abarth Certified by FIA. The British driving for Van Amersfoort Racing also won race 3 in front of his teammate Nikita Bedrin, new leader of the rookie standings and Leonardo Fornaroli who, thanks to his good performances on the Imola track, went back to his second position in the overall standings. 

In race 3 Bearman start well in front of Bedrin and Montoya, with Fornaroli who lose two positions. The Iron Lynx driver from Piacenza tried on Montoya but without success, while Zuniga went wide at the Tamburello while he was trying to overtake his teammate Durksen. Kirill Smal continues to “fight” with Imola and spinned at the Variante Alta, forced to go back on track occupying the last position. Always at the Variante Alta contact between Bence Valint and Maya Weug, with the Hungarian driver who first touch the car of the Ferrari driver Academy driver and then is rear-ended by Conrad Laursen who ended up against the safety barriers and is forced to retire. Mistake also for Sebastian Montoya who allows Fornaroli to gain the third position behind Bearman and Bedrin. Great fight between Patrese and Zuniga, with the driver of AKM Motorsport who took the ninth position. Another contact for Maya Weug, who forced Pedro Perino towards the outside of the Tamburello turn. The contact is inevitable and the Portuguese is out of the games, while the Dutch driver took a penalty of 10’’. Few seconds to the end a contact between Kirill Smal and Jorge Garciarce forced the race director to exhibit the red flag due to the car of the Russian stucked in the middle of the track. Bearman scored his eighth consecutive victory, extending his gap in the standings on Fornaroli third behind Bedrin. Fourth place for Sebastian Montoya, who closes a complicated weekend. Fifth place for Joshua Dufek who keeps behind him an excellent Francesco Braschi, unlucky in the first two races but in great growth on the Imola track. Joshua Durksen precedes Lorenzo Patrese who completes the rookie podium. Samir Ben and Erik Zuniga finish in the top 10. 

The rankings of race 3 will remain sub judice until the completion of technical checks on the engines of several cars.
