Hitech GP operated the Formula 4 Cup as part of the FIA Motorsport Games over the weekend, which took place at Rome’s Autodromo di Vallelunga. Drivers competed for Bronze, Silver and Gold medals around the 4.085km circuit which featured an Olympics-style awarding system, with the National Sporting Authority (ASN) awarding the inaugural FIA Motorsport Games trophy during the closing ceremony.
Italian driver Andrea Rosso claimed victory in the Formula 4 Cup Main Race. Germany’s Niklas Kruetten and Finland’s William Alatalo completed the podium courtesy of a late race Safety Car period that scuppered the hopes of long-time leader Ido Cohen.
The Silverstone-based team supplied a full race operations package, which entailed an “arrive and drive” format. All cars were operated by Hitech GP with identical set-ups and limited tyres, and with data being shared between all drivers and engineers. A KCMG-designed hybrid chassis was used by all drivers, and marked the first F4 car to feature a Halo safety device, which is currently in use in Formula 1, Formula 2 and Formula 3 and which was not due until the next generation of F4 cars in 2021.
