Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

  • Sixth appointment of the season with the German series, led by Australian pilot Joey Mawson with #mickschumacher in second place.
  • Forty young pilots in the one-seaters powered by #abarth, #racing four competitions: two on Saturday and two on Sunday.
  • The opinion of Sebastian Vettel.

 

The sixth stage of the ADAC-Abarth F4 Championship powered by #abarth will take place this weekend on the German #nurburgring circuit, featuring over 40 young drivers on the starting line driving Tatuus single-seaters with #abarth engines.

 

The uncertainty over the final rankings makes this Championship especially exciting, with Australian pilot Joey Mawson leading, in front of German #mickschumacher and Mick Ortmann.
This is a great, yet demanding season for young Schumacher, since he also races in the #italianf4championship powered by #abarth, where is in second place in the general rankings.

 

Both championships adopt the single-seater with #abarth T-Jet 160 HP engine, the same engine featured in the #abarth 595 and 595 Turismo, which guarantees maximum reliability and low management costs.

 

That this is a good formula was confirmed by the words of Sebastian Vettel at the last German Grand Prix: "I saw the ADAC-Abarth F4 races on TV - said the Ferrari pilot - and I noticed that the youngest provide a great, exciting #racing show. I am curious to see if some of them, in a few years, will participate in the German GP driving a Formula 1 car".

 

The weekend's programme in #nurburgring will consist of two rounds of official time trials starting on Friday 5 August at 2.30 and 2.55 p.m.. Qualifiers will take place on Saturday at 10.40 a.m., while Race1 will start at 2.50 p.m.; the two Sunday races will take place at 10.30 a.m. and 2.50 p.m. respectively. The races can be watched in live streaming at www.adac-motorsport.de.
