Luka Giotto brought UNI-Virtuosi second pole in the F2 seasonMay 11, 2019
UNI-Virtuosi pilot Luca Giotto won the Formula 2 qualification in Barcelona, in a tense struggle ahead of his rivals for the second before the checkered flag.
Until the last five minutes, Campos pilot Jack Aitken was at the top of the table. The Briton took the lead early with the time of 1.28.406, and in the middle of the session on the free highway could take another five hundredths.
However, Campos tactics turned out to be erroneous, as the track became faster at the end of the session. De Vries, Zhou and Latifi one after another drove their circles around 1.28.2, and the last crossed the Gotto line, and he also showed the fastest time – 1.28.031, at the same time surpassing Alex Albon at the tenth time last year.
Luca Giotto won the second pole position in the season after Bahrain, and with it the bonus four points. Championship leader Nicolas Latifi from DAMS remained second. Guan Yu Zhou and Nick de Vries will occupy the second row of the starting field, separated by only 0.017 seconds. Aitken after early success dropped to fifth place.
The first race of the Formula 2 stage in Barcelona will begin on Saturday.
