F3: Franco Colapinto was second in the Montmeló tests

The Argentine Franco Colapinto was escorted by the Swiss Gregoire Saucy (ART) in the initial session of the FIA Formula 3 collective tests in Barcelona, the Montmeló track.Colapinto, a native of Pilar, province of Buenos Aires, began a new practice of fia Formula 3, which he develops in Barcelona in another session of collective tests in preparation for the next race, that will be held next week at the Italian circuit of Ímola.Colapinto was positioned as an escort and recorded his best lap with 1m32s402, 155 thousandths of the Swiss Gregoire Saucy (ART Grand Prix). The morning session had to be interrupted twice with a red flag, motivated by the breakdowns of the engines of the French-Algerian Isack Hadjar (Hitech GP); and the Italian-Argentine Matteo Nannini, who occupied the tenth position of the table, at 0s649, with 24 laps. In the second session, the best was the Romanian Alexander Smolyar (MP Motorsport), but his time of 1m33s342 was far from the records of the initial run. Most of the drivers, including Colapinto (who clocked 1m36s623), were engaged in different jobs on the Catalan track, with pit stop practices to check the performance of Pirelli hard compound tyres.
