During the qualifying session, “Balda” then on a good lap, shoots straight and cancels any hope of improvement. The Italian driver starts 22nd. The transalpine does not give up and has a good start and then a solid race, despite an error, he makes many overtakings and climbs to 14th place by taking advantage of a few racing events.

For Valentin Debise, who left too far on the starting line due to a daring tire choice, he will place 12th following qualifying. The lap times during the race are 4 tenths faster than in qualifying.
