Siebert Recovers Championship Hopes with Race 3 Win

by Connor Jackson

Another superb drive saw Marcos Siebert recover from a bad weekend by taking his fourth win of the season from a third place start. The Jenzer Motorsport driver extended his lead at the front of the Italian F4 Championship and continues the three way battle for the title.

As he maintained a top ten position in race one, championship leader Seibert had the luxury of starting on the second row. Meanwhile rival Mick Schumacher started at the back after his crash in the second race.

Siebert was quick to muscle his way into the lead ahead of pole sitter Yan Leon Shlom. The Russian would hold onto second, collecting his best result of the year.

The first lap saw Simone Cunati spin after getting two wheels on the gravel. This bunched up the field behind, with race two winner Giuliano Raucci bumped behind by Kush Maini. Trying to regain the position, Ye Yifei was edged onto the grass by Shlom, spinning the Chinese driver.

Elsewhere, a positive start from Aldo Festante was undone as he drove through the gravel costing him time and a shot at the points, he later retired.

All of the action behind had allowed Siebert to run off and take another commanding win. Shlom eventually maintained second after holding off Juri Vips for the second half of the race. Third place Vips would also claim the rookie win.

Job van Uitert claimed fourth ensuring he’s now only half a point behind Mauricio Baiz who once again failed to score. The battle for fifth eventually saw Devlin DeFrancesco hold off Raul Guzman, who leaves the weekend equal second in the standings.

Siebert still leads the championship with 165 points. Schumacher, who claimed the fastest lap leaves the Mugello weekend with 126, same as Guzman. Elsewhere, Baiz remains rooted on 85 points ahead of van Uitert and Joao Vieira on 68.
