F.4 – Ascari’s mistake conditions Joao’s test

The Circus of F.4 Italy is make the appointment at Monza in preparation for the second round, scheduled for May 31st. Workday characterized by the off track as the Ascari in the late morning for Joao Vieira, who was forced to remain stationary in the pits of Antonelli Motorsport until mid-afternoon, to give the opportunity to the staff directed by Marco Antonelli of repair the Tatuus #50.

Back on track only at 4:00pm, the yellow-gold driver managed to go 22 rounds before the arrival of the rain, breaking early the work. A day’s work that certainly does not reflect the technical potential of Joao Viera, who in March had managed to lower more than 6 dec the time of the pole in 2014.

The incident of the morning has certainly influenced the whole program because I could return to track only mid-afternoon. Anyway before the arrival of the rain I drove 22 laps with tires already lapped. When we were about to mount the new tires, it started to rain. Furthermore once again we had problems with the engine that in the straight gave much to the opponents. Ahead of the weekend of the race I think that we come back to my old engine“, the driver of Minardi Management, Joao Vieira, comments.

Day conditioned by Ascari’s mistake that forced Joao to remain stationary in the pits until 4:00pm. In the morning he was still able to put together 31 laps. Before the arrival of the rain he has turned old tires along other 22 laps. We will have had fresh tires, but the rain made us change plans. Better to have made the mistake in a test that during the race weekend and I’m sure it will be helpful to Joao to maintain the concentration high“, the manager Giovanni Minardi analyzes.
