Test F2 Sakhir, Giorno 1: Pedro Piquet svetta in extremis

Pedro Piquet svetta in extremis al termine della prima giornata di test della FIA F2 in Bahrain, dove i concorrenti per la prima volta hanno girato al volante delle rispettive monoposto con le nuovissime gomme Pirelli da 18", che il prossimo anno vedremo anche sulle Formula 1.

Il brasiliano ha soffiato il primato proprio nei minuti conclusivi della sessione pomeridiano-serale a Nobuharu Matsushita, che si era issato in vetta alla classifica da diverso tempo. Piquet, a bordo della vettura preparata dal team Charouz Racing System, ha fermato il cronometro sull'1'41"877, precedendo il giapponese della MP Motorsport per appena 0"193.

La maggior parte dei crono di riferimento è stata siglata nella seconda parte di prove, abbassando parecchio i tempi, con Piquet che alla fine è l'unico ad abbattere il muro dell'1'42".

In terza posizione, ad un paio di decimi dal leader, abbiamo Jehan Daruvala (Carlin), il quale si tiene dietro Roy Nissany (Trident) e Marcus Armstrong (ART Grand Prix), che completano la Top5.

Mezzo secondo, invece, se lo beccano Sean Gelael (DAMS) e Tom Dillman, che ha preso il posto di Marino Sato alla Trident al pomeriggio, rispettivamente sesto e settimo della classifica.

Ottavo chiude Louis Deletraz, che con la seconda auto della Charouz Racing System era riuscito a terminare primo al mattino in 1'43"583, mentre la Top10 viene completata da Artem Markelov (HWA) e Yuki Tsunoda (Carlin) davanti alla Prema di Mick Schumacher.

Giornata difficile per Luca Ghiotto, riuscito ad arrivare in Bahrain dopo un viaggio con mille peripezie dovute ai voli cancellati o ritardati per Coronavirus. Il portacolori della Hitech Grand Prix al mattino era 13° in 1'46"059, poi al pomeriggio ha migliorato in 1'43"619, ritrovandosi però 19° a causa di un problema che lo ha fermato lungo il tracciato.

Da segnalare anche un testacoda in pista per Nikita Mazepin, intento a combattere per guadagnare una miglior posizione con Dan Ticktum.
