Forlì-born driver Matteo Nannini keeps on working towards his F4 debut in 2019, collecting mileage and gathering more and more on-track experience in different conditions. This week he Italian flew to Spain and took part in the Navarra rookie test on Monday and Tuesday.
The result once again turned out extremely positive, as Nannini ended the session on top, polishing the pole position laptime previously set during the race on Sunday.
The first day was characterised by heavy rain, which allowed Nannini to test his skills and cover over 350 kilometres on wet track. Other than Mugello and Vallelunga, our driver sampled the Navarra track for the first time as well, but the feedback was positive from the very beginning. “In wet conditions visibility was reduced to the minimum, and when I was behind another car, it was very difficult to find the braking point. The car was set-up well and I was always in control despite the lack of grip" said Matteo at the end of day 1.
The track evolved throughout the second day, as Nannini managed to set the second best laptime on used tyres in the morning. As the chequered flag came out, Nannini had already imposed himself on top with the overall best time.
"On the second day I did not encounter any particular difficulties and after a number of set-up changes I managed to complete a stint of very fast laps on fresh tyres. Additionally, I improved the pole position laptime of the race last Sunday, so I feel very satisfied, but I still have a lot of work to do."There is certainly work to do as a new challenge awaits Nannini. The Italian is headed to the Red Bull Ring, where the official F4 test is going to take place in the upcoming weekend.
