Its the penultimate race of the season for the Formula 2 and the title fight is on between former team mates at ART Theo Pourchaire and Fredrik Vesti( now driving for Prema) and the battle behind threatening to make it a 3 or 4 car race to the final weekend of the season in Abu Dhabi. Every point counts at Monza
11 minutes to go and drivers pushing start to make mistakes, the great talent of Zane Maloney was pushed by the speed of Monza as he was forced to make a brilliant catch after almost losing the car on the exit of the 2nd Lesmo corners and Bearman was pushing hard enough to drop 2 tyres onto the dirt on a push lap. Mean while the 2 championship Rivals were playing mind games with each other when they met on track during an out lap, with Vesti running very slow to try and push Pourchaire past him, trying to win the mental war before the competitive sessions have even started. All of which was completely unnecessary as Hauger had a massive spin at Turn 11 after putting 2 wheels on the grass strip on the edge of a track bringing out a red flag and ending the session prematurely.
