Podio gara 3, Juan Manuel Correa (Prema Power Team,Tatuus F.4 T014 Abarth #68), Diego Ciantini (Jenzer Motorsport,Tatuus F.4 T014 Abarth #17)Yan Shlom (RB Racing,Tatuus F.4 T014 Abarth #99)

In what became the shortest of the three Italian F4 races this weekend, Juan Maneul Correa was classified as the winner after a mere 5 laps of racing. The win means the American lead a surprising podium which featured none of the top 10 in the championship.

The final race of the weekend sees the top ten from the second race reversed, ensuring the usual front runners are forced to battle their way to the front. This left Yan Leon Shlom on pole, but the Russian was unable to hold off the pressure from behind.

The race was once again started behind safety car as the drivers were not allowed to perform a standing restart as the track was still considerably wet from earlier. Shlom found himself moving back a place as a number of changes further back jumbled the order.

The first safety car was called as Devlin DeFrancesco found himself sliding off the track, once again bringing and end to his day. The result will be a disappointment for the Canadian who was hoping to prove his skills internationally after a win the UK.

The main battle for the second half of the race was between Diego Ciantini and Shlom over second place. The Argentine driver eventually ended on an advantage as he edged out Shlom to take second. It didn’t last long though as Ciantini went off on the main straight, bringing out the red flag. The results were taken from the lap before ensuring that Ciantini was classified as second ahead of Shlom.

Behind the top three, Raul Guzman took fourth to secure joint second in the championship with sixth placed Mick Schumacher. They were split by Marcos Siebert, who maintained his record of finishing every race inside the top 5. Job van Uitert and Ye Yifei stayed out of trouble during the race to finish seventh and eighth respectively.
