Beside that, there’s still a lot to fight for this weekend.
In Formula Regional the battle for the final podium involves Enzo Fittipaldi (Prema Powerteam) who is protecting his position from David Schumacher (US Racing), fiercely attacking reassured by his growing performances during the last period.
