PREMA Theodore Racing enjoyed a solid weekend despite some ups and downs at Monza, in the third round of the Italian Formula 4 Championship. Lining-up at the majestic northern Italian venue, the team relied on a valiant effort by Olli Caldwell, who brought home a triple podium finish and climbed up to P2 in the driver standings. The talented British racer ended up in second place twice in race 1 and 2, before maximizing his results in race 3 with a third position. On the other hand, Enzo Fittipaldi had a tough weekend, scoring zero points in the two opening races before bouncing back from P11 to P5 in race 3. Jack Doohan kept impressing. The Australian secured two rookie wins and even made his way to the top-5 overall in race 2, while fellow rookie Amna Al Qubaisi, only at her second race outing, completed the three heats with no mistakes to report and a best placing of P16. PREMA Theodore Racing is still leading the Teams Championship by a considerable margin and is ready to line-up for more action in the two coming weeks.

“This was a very positive weekend for us. We scored three podiums in three races, getting valuable points, and we are second in the championship which is good too. Now I’m focused on the upcoming rounds at Red Bull Ring next weekend and at Misano the weekend after. We are not letting this results affect our performance. We will build on some small errors that we made and we are looking forward to being back on the podium soon.”

“It was a difficult weekend but it happens, there are ups and downs sometimes. It all started off with a mistake in qualifying and that was our weekend, starting from the back and trying to make our way up to the top-5. In race 1 we were fighting for the podium but I lost my front wing in a crash. In race 2 I was battling for a top-5 finish but there was an incident with another car in the last corner of the last lap which was unfortunate as well. In race 3 we started P11 and we went all the way up to P5 which is positive. Overall it wasn’t our weekend but we keep working to come back on top.”

“Today’s race was quite difficult for me since it’s my first time ever driving at Monza, and I suffered a few problems in qualifying so I had to start at the back of the grid. However, I kept pushing to move forward and learn the track lap by lap.”
