After Antonio Giovinazzi signed two wins valid for the GP2 Series event at the Baku city circuit, in Silverstone it was Antonio Fuoco’s turn. At the wheel of the Dallara GP3 of the Trident Team, the driver from the Ferrari Driver Academy and ACI Team Italia achieved his first seasonal win. In spite of a slippery asphalt due to the rain fallen few minutes before the start, all the drivers chose slick tires, offering spectators an amazing race. Fuoco dominates ahead of Alex Palou and Charles Leclerc, in second and third position at the finish line respectively, with minimal gaps between 4 and 5 tenths of seconds.
“I did not do a good start, and given the circuit conditions, I decided to handle my position in the early laps. When I started to push, my pace was very good, and I managed to recover up to the first place.My team was saying to me to keep calm through the radio. It has been a very important weekend to us, and we made a great job. In qualifying, we were in sixth and we managed to end the weekend with a third place and a win”, Antonio Fuoco says.
Thanks to his success, Antonio strengthened his position in the overall standings, reducing his gap from the top to 14 points. In fifteen days, the next event will be in Hungary.
