Maximilian Spies with a great race thanks to a good start ends in sixth position and tenth overall. Tuani improves with 22nd place.
Marco Maddii: "Difficult day for Mattia, to be able to reopen the championship we lost points from the top of the standings, I am still satisfied because there is speed to be able to stay ahead, he made a mistake of concentration and it cost him a lot. I am very happy with Max's race who made a great second heat and 10th place overall. Well Federico who hit the qualification, too bad for the rear wheel problem for Eugenio that took away his chance to qualify. "
