The Formula 4 racing driver Zachary David, who competes with a Maltese licence, raced in the first round of the Italian Championship, held at the historic Imola track between April 22 and 23.
Qualifying was good with David finished just 0.1 of a second off the pole time.
But given the qualifying field was very tight, David finished fourth in the group and eighth overall. That meant that Zachary had to start in position 5 or 6 in the races.
David had a problematic first race, as he found the car quite hard to drive after getting stuck in dirty air behind other racers.
However, David returned home with a rookie P3 podium and finished sixth overall.
After the race, Zachary David said: “Overall, a solid weekend from both myself and the team, there are still some things to work on, but we all are looking forward to the next round in Misano in a couple of weeks.”
