Fuoco promoted to first place

Antonio Fuoco was promoted to the Saturday’s race victory at Monza, as Luca Ghiotto has lost the first place after the race stewards judged him to have gained an advantage exceeding track limits at the first chicane on the last lap, handing the Italian a 5 second penalty. The Italian Prema‘s driver claimed his first FIA F2 Championship win, whilst Ghiotto was classified 4th behind the third placed Nicholas Latifi (DAMS) and Nobuharu Matsushita (ART Grand Prix).

Another penalty was given Alexander Albon, who was guilty to have caused a collision with Norman Nato on the final lap. The Thai driver, who crossed the line in P5, had 10 seconds added to his time for a classification of 14th.

Nyck De Vries also collected a penalty after the stewards judged him to have caused a collision with Charles Leclerc out of the first chicane on the final lap: the Dutchman, who didn’t finish the race due to the puncture he collected in the collision, was given a drive through penalty, which was converted into a 20 seconds time penalty.
