Formula Renault Eurocup - Caio Collet trims his deficit at Imola

31.10.2020: Thanks to an excellent start from third place on the grid, Renault Sport Academy driver Caio Collet (R-ace GP) wins in front of motor racing’s elite at Imola.


Thanks to an excellent start from third place on the grid, Renault Sport Academy driver Caio Collet (R-ace GP) wins in front of motor racing’s elite at Imola.



The Brazilian driver was followed by rookie Alex Quinn (Arden Motorsport) and pole winner Lorenzo Colombo (Bhaitech Racing) to close the gap to eight points from the Formula Renault Eurocup leader, Victor Martins (ART Grand Prix), who was fifth today.



At 8h10 this morning, the Formula Renault Eurocup was first on track to kick-off the Formula 1 Emirates Emilia Romagna Grand Prix weekend.


After early domination from the ART Grand Prix trio of drivers just until the red flag caused by Abbi Pulling (FA Racing), the sole free-practice session was paced by the two main title contenders, Victor Martins and Caio Collet.



The Frenchman got the upper hand with a time of 1:40.795s while Franco Colapinto (MP Motorsport) and Lorenzo Colombo slotted in between the two young chargers. Two-time winner at Imola in July, David Vidales (JD Motorsport) completed the top five.



Qualifying was a much different story. On a faster and faster track, Lorenzo Colombo beat the track record for the category with a lap of 1:40.075s to take his first pole position of the season ahead of Alex Quinn, Caio Collet, Franco Colapinto and Victor Martins.


When the lights went out, Lorenzo Colombo held on to the lead, but missed his first breaking point and went straight and through the gravel. In a very hectic field, Paul Aron (ART GRand Prix) made contact with Hadrien David (MP Motorsport) and lost control of his car before running into David Vidales at the first chicane.



Before the safety car was called out to allow for the removal of the damaged cars as well as that of László Tóth (Bhaitech Racing), stuck on the grid, Caio Collet took advantage of an error by Lorenzo Colombo to take the lead. The Brazilian kept his adversaries in check at the restart, but that was short-lived because sixth place Grégoire Saucy (ART Grand Prix) went off at the first corner.


The race resumed on lap six. Despite pressure from Lorenzo Colombo, Caio Collet kept the lead before building the gap when his rival made an unforced error that let Alex Quinn move up to second place.



Under the watchful eyes of the Renault DP World F1 Team and Renault Sport Academy, Caio Collet made the Brazilian national anthem play over the loudspeaker at Imola following his fourth win of the year with a four-second advantage to rookie category winner, Alex Quinn. Despite a trip through the gravel late in the race, local driver Lorenzo Colombo claimed the final step of the podium ahead of Franco Colapinto and Victor Martins.



Hadrien David finished sixth ahead of Reshad De Gerus (Arden Motorsport), who scored his best result this season so far. William Alatalo (JD Motorsport) was eighth ahead of Ugo de Wilde (Arden Motorsport), who started 13th. Petr Ptáček (MP Motorsport) scored the final point on offer.



Tomorrow morning at 8h55, the drivers will head into qualifying before competing as the curtain raiser to the Formula 1 Emirates Emilia Romagna Grand Prix at 10h30.
