PREMA Powerteam is racing at Imola this weekend, with the flowing Italian venue ready for round 4 of the Italian Formula 4 Championship. As the junior competition approaches its halfway point of the season, the team is looking forward to capitalizing on the good results scored recently and stay in contention for wins. There will also be a new addition to report, with Frenchman Maceo Capietto making his race debut in the championship. The 15-year-old Frenchman is currently running third with two wins to his name in the French Formula 4. After testing with the team earlier this year, he is now set for a competitive foray in the challenging Italian series.
Currently holding third place in driver points, 16-year-old Sebastian Montoya is chasing his first career win after coming close in the previous round at Vallelunga and in the recent German F4 event at Zandvoort. The Colombian-American made considerable progress this season turning into a stable contender. Having made his way back to victory in the Netherlands, Kirill Smal is looking to repeat the same feat at Imola.
Conrad Laursen is also coming from a positive run in the latest round Italian series at Vallelunga. The Dane looks to consolidate his form and put in another step towards the overall podium while still fighting for the rookie championship. Last but not least, Hamda Al Qubaisi has been extremely impressive so far, and she tries to carry on the momentum to the flowing 4.9-kilometre circuit. The Emirati female racer had good runs there in the past and is looking for another breakthrough event.
Angelo Rosin - Team Principal
"We are lining up at Imola for the fourth event of the 2021 season. In the previous round of the German Championship, only a couple of weeks ago, we fought back to victory and last November we performed well at Imola too. This might definitely be the right place to show our potential and put it all together. We know what we are capable of as shown by the many podiums and good results, and we are determined to continue putting down the effort to make the difference on race day."
