Drugovich grabbed title glory in style today with his tenth victory of the season. Viscaal (Teo Martín Motorsport) went back up on to the podium with Das (Carlin) registering another rostrum finish. Viscaal won the rookie class with RP Motorsport drivers Frederick and Lorandi also making it to the podium

 

Brazil’s Felipe Drugovich (RP Motorsport) has sealed the 2018 Euroformula Open title after winning the second race at Monza. It was the first match ball for Drugovich and the new Euroformula Open champion seized the opportunity. Drugovich’s numbers speak by themselves: ten wins, two second places, eight pole positions and seven fastest laps. Congratulations Felipe! Well deserving champion!



Bent Viscaal (Teo Martín Motorsport), Matheus Iorio (Carlin), Marcos Siebert (Carlin) and Cameron Das (Carlin) still have the ambition to fight for the vice-championship with two events ahead in Jerez and Barcelona.



In the morning, Drugovich took a last gasp effort for pole. Drugovich lowed the benchmark on his last attempt to put in a 1:45.700 pipping Viscaal to pole position. It was all about getting the tow from another car and Drugovich mastered with Monza slipstreaming to bag a crucial pole position.


With Viscaal second, Calan Williams (Fortec) delivered another strong performance to take third spot on the grid ahead of Iorio, who qualified fourth. Further adrift, Guilherme Samaia (RP Motorsport) classified fifth to start alongside Das.




Alex Karkosik (Campos Racing) and his teammate Siebert locked out row four for the Spain-based team. Leonardo Lorandi (RP Motorsport) and Lukas Dunner (Drivex) rounded off the top-ten. Series newcomer Lorandi ran wide at Lesmo damaging his Dallara and failing to improve in the dying moments of the session.



Drugovich lead from lights-out to checkered flag as the pole-sitter pulled off a real opportunist move into the chicane from Viscaal but Williams spun after making contact with Iorio. Everybody avoided Williams’ car and the Perth native rejoined the race. Drugovich was leading after two laps with Viscaal, Siebert – who had moved up to third-, Iorio, Karkosik and Samaia running behind.




The safety car was deployed on lap 3 following a race incident involving Aldo Festante (Teo Martín Motorsport) and Dev Gore (Carlin), the latter receiving a drive through penalty. With green flags being waved again, Drugovich pulled away as Viscaal, Siebert and Lorandi were fighting for second. Dutchman Viscaal dropped to fourth after missing the braking point at the first chicane on lap 8.




 However, Siebert crashed into Lorandi three laps later. Siebert retired from the race with suspension damage and Lorandi struggled with no rear wing, which paved the way for Viscaal now retaking second place. There was more drama as Dunner also collided with Karkosik and they both were forced to retire shortly after.



After 18 laps, Drugovich took the checkered flag first with Viscaal second. Das managed to put in a recovery drive to past Iorio for third at the end. Iorio finished fourth with Frederick scoring a promising top-five finish. Lorandi finally brought sixth place home with Samaia finishing seventh. Williams came eighth ahead of Christian Hahn (Drivex) and Gore completed the top-ten.
