Prema Powerteam completed a perfect opening weekend to the Formula Renault Alps season with Italian Antonio Fuoco winning the second Vallelunga race after his team mate Bruno Bonifacio won the first one.
The race was mostly dominated by Brazilian Bonifacio, with Dutchman Nyck de Vries following closely behind in second. He tried to overtake Bonifacio but the move ended in contact between the two drivers and neither could continue the race. As a result of this incident Fuoco took the lead and comfortably won the race and took the lead of the championship.
In second place was the other Prema Powerteam car driven by Luca Ghioto, followed by Koiranen Motorsport?s Brazilian Guilherme Silva completing the podium.
Fourth place was for Pierre Gasly for Tech 1 Racing with his team mate Matthieu Vaxiviere taking a strong fifth place after not being able to complete the first race.
French driver William Vermont took sixth place for Arta Engineering, in front of BMV Racing?s Italian Dario Capitanio in seventh, who wasn?t able to complete the first race either.
In eighth was the Japanese Uyko Sasahara for Euronova Racing, who repeated his position from the previous race; behind in ninth place for GSK Grand Prix was Kevin Gilardoni, with Swiss Kevin Jorg for Jenzer Motorsport taking tenth place and the final point.
Thanks to his two podiums Fuoco now leads the championship comfortably from Ghioto. The championship top five after Vallelunga Weekend is: Antonio Fuoco 43pts; Luca Ghiotto 28pts; Pierre Gasly 27pts; Bruno Bonifacio 25pts; Guilherme Silva 23pts.
