Monza, race two: Zampieri champion, Ferrari F.1. test for him, Zipoli and Sanchez
Grazia Troncon (Prema Powerteam, Team Manager): "Our congratulations go first of all to the new Italian Champion, Daniel Zampieri and then to the whole BVM-Target team. We arrived at Monza well determined to exploit the second position in classification of Campos-Hull to try and get the title. Unfortunately, things on track did not go very well for us and at the first lap of race one one episode sent off the Spaniard and heavily penalized Castellacci. Daniel deserves anyway the merit of keeping on trying in race two and to have scored one of the best races of his career. Francesco was victim of the failure of an axle shaft during the formation lap and he could not start the race".
Gabriele Lucidi (Lucidi Motors, Team Principal):
"A fourth and second place would normally constitute a positive outcome for a racing weekend, unfortunately these results were not enough for Campana to be within the first three in the final classification. After qualifying, Sergio suffered a partial power loss that prevented him from pushing as he would have wanted and this certainly influenced his performance.
A positive note came from Prandi, who scored points in both the races, while the single seater of Libearti, after the incident in race one, was too compromised to be fixed on time for race two. My most sincere compliments go to Daniel Zampieri and to the Team BVM for the title obtained with merit throughout the season".
Cristiano Giardina (RC Motorsport, Team Principal): "We witnessed a very good and thrilling championship. This was our first season in a series that allowed us to grow up and learn a lot: we had some problems here at Monza but I think that we can be overall satisfied by what done this year. Our compliments go to the winners, with the objective to be within the title fight for 2010".
Piercarlo Ghinzani (Team Ghinzani, Team Owner): "After the sixth place in race one obtained by Cicatelli we hoped for a good result in race two, but unfortunately the race did not go as expected, even if the points he obtained grant him the seventh final place of the classification.
The outcome of Cicognani's weekend is unavoidably spoiled by the incident in race one, that conditioned the outcome of race two as well. Our most sincere congratulations go to Daniel Zampieri, who won the title at the end of a high class championship".
Enrico Glorioso (Gloria Pro Team, Team Principal): "We concluded the season, even if with just one single seater on track, with the best result of the season which shows the growth of our team at the first experience in Formula 3. Now, we will have to exploit the winter to be fully competitive in 2010; meanwhile we send our compliments to Daniel Zampieri and to the whole team".
Angelo Corbetta (Corbetta Competizioni, Team Principal): "Monza, despite being the home race, confirmed to be not very favorable to our colors. Qualifying penalyzed our weekend especially in the case of Cinti, victim of an exit that relegated him to the last row. After the ninth place obtained yesterday, we tried to modify the setup but unfortunately we did not obtain the results we hoped for. His third place in rookies' classification, despite not taking part to two races, is anyway an extremely positive result.
Dalle Stelle had a progressive power loss which partially slowed him down, but he managed to finish both races. Congratulations of the whole team go to Zampieri and BVM-Target for the 2009 title".
The tightest Italian Formula 3 championship of the last few years concluded today at Monza with the victory of Pablo Sanchez-Lopez in race two, who was determined, as yesterday, to recover from the sixth position up to the double victory that awarded him with the third place of the final classification and the test behind the wheel of the F60 Ferrari.
At his back, Sergio Campana (Lucidi Motors) and Daniel Campos-Hull (Prema Powerteam), protagonist of a good race started from the back of the grid after the incident occurred yesterday.
Fourth place and title for Daniel Zampieri (BVM-Target), followed by his team-mate Marco Zipoli, who concluded second in the classification.
Protagonists' comment follows:
Giuseppe Mazzotti (BVM-Target, Team Manager): "The championship ended in the best possible way, with our two drivers in the first two positions of the classification. This is a great result for the whole team which will have to honor of being represented twice at the Ferrari test, an important award that we managed to obtain last year too with Salvatore Cicatelli.
My acknowledgement goes to the drivers for writing an important page in the history of the team, a lot of people worked to obtain this success and I am most grateful to all of them".
Alberto Locatelli (Alan Racing Team, Team Owner): "I send the compliments of all the team to Daniel Zampieri and BVM-Target for the 2009 title.
Sanchez has been great this weekend, he exploited to the maximum the performances of our Mygale that has now reached an absolute level of competitiveness.
We finish the season with four victories and with the proudness of being the only team to achieve a double victory, thanks also to the development work done with great professionalism by Angelo Fabrizio Comi. Pablo will have the chance to test the Ferrari, a chance that we hope will boost further his career".
