Wheater changes marked the final round of the European Championship, so much that the Final took place under the rain on Sunday’s afternoon. The young Italian driver was not satisfied of his performance in the qualifying practice: in the heats, he had to recover many positions to gain a best place in the starting grid of the Final. On Sunday, the climate changes required a new set-up. Marseglia didn’t give up, also because he usually likes to race on wet track.
