American rookie Juan Manuel Correa, took his third Italian F4 Championship win of the season. He lead home team-mate Mick Schumacher who completed an outstanding drive from tenth on the Vallelunga grid.

While it had been clean during the the first two races of the weekend, the start was more eventful in race three. The stalled car of Raul Guzman caused chaos behind with a safety car being called. Joao Viera and Marino Sato were caught up in the incident and quickly brought an end to their running.

The field was forced through the pit lane as the pit straight was cleared off debris and cars. Correa, who had started on pole, kept his lead with Sebastian Fernandez also hanging onto his second place grid position.

The track was eventually cleared, but left only seven minutes of racing. The positions remained static for the first few laps, yet it wasn’t long before Schumacher was up to fourth. Later, Fernandez found himself dropping back, seeing Kush Maini and the young German inherit the final podium places.

Schumacher wasn’t prepared to settle though. On the penultimate lap, he found a way past Maini, taking second. It wasn’t enough to beat the ever impressive Correa, taking his third victory of the season.

Behind them, Fernandez held onto fourth after late pressure from Artem Petrov in what became the Russian’s best weekend of the season. In stark contrast was Marcos Siebert. The championship leader lost vital points to Schumacher and Guzman over the weekend and finished sixth.

Diego Bertonelli could not capitalise on the start line stall from Guzman and finished in the position he started, seventh. Meanwhile, Giacomo Altoe took a well earned eighth having started outside the top ten.
