Thomas Biagi’s difficult introduction to the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup continued on Sunday around the tight and twisty street circuit of Monte Carlo but the Italian had reason to be cheerful as he left the principality having shown a marked improvement in pace.

The MOMO-Megatron seated racer viewed the starting lights for the race from nineteenth position on the twenty six entry grid but began the race well, making up several positions. The Bologna native showed strong pace around the notoriously difficult circuit, made even more so by the wide nature of the Type 991 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car.

However, whilst Biagi would continue his terrific drive into the points positions, his race would unfortunately end with a sting in the tale. As the Italian battled with Konrad Motorsport’s Christopher Zöchling the pair made contact at Portier within five laps of the finish. The incident sent former FIA GT champion Biagi tumbling down to twenty third position over the remaining distance.

As the Supercup moves to Austria and the iconic Spielberg circuit in four weeks’ time, Biagi reflected on Monaco as a positive meeting of growth. “Even though the contact with Zochling stripped me of the chance to get the first points in Porsche Supercup, the race gave us positive indications anyway. The setup changes we did after qualifying reduced a lot of the under-steer making the car easier to driver. Paradoxically, the incident has been useful as it gave us the chance to lap on a clean track and to evaluate the setup changes made: the pace in the second half of the race improved. The first signals of growth are appearing and we hope we can gradually get closer to the top positions in this very tight championship,” he concluded.
