The Formula Renault 2.0 Northern European Cup season finally gets underway this weekend around the legendary Autodromo Nazionale Monza, and it was Frenchman Gabriel Aubry who paced the field on Friday.
The Tech 1 Racing driver was fastest in the opening session on Friday morning with a best time of 1:50.424s, and despite going slightly slower in the second session, his 1:50.693s was again enough for him to end the session on top.
Finishing second in both sessions was Aubry’s team-mate Max Fewtrell, with the Briton 0.269 seconds down in the first session and 0.145 seconds down in the second.
Presley Martono put his Mark Burdett Motorsport machine third fastest in the first session, just ahead of Frenchman Jean-Baptiste Simmenauer of JD Motorsport, while R-ace GP’s Charles Milesi rounded out the top five ahead of Renault Sport Academy member Sun Yue Yang of JD Motorsport.
Simmenauer blotted his copybook by spinning at turn ten in the second session, meaning he could not better eleventh, with Gilles Magnus and Milesi ensuring R-ace GP ended third and fourth fastest ahead of Yue Yang and Michael Benyahia.
