F2 | Azerbaijan GP, gearbox failure rules Nannini out of the Feature Race

Baku (Azerbaijan), 6.06.2021 – A gearbox issue thwarted Matteo Nannini and Campos Racing’s effort before the start of Sunday’s Feature Race. The Italian finished 15th and 11th in Sprint Race 1 and 2 yesterday.

Nannini was set to start from P17 on Sunday morning, but an issue detected during the formation lap prevented him from taking part in the race.

Nonetheless, the Italian wraps up a positive race weekend, which marks his debut on a street circuit and with a new team.

“Obviously I am gutted, especially because I had the opportunity to recover with a good strategy. Being unlucky is also part of the game in motorsports. It’s been a positive weekend for me, as I didn’t make any mistakes and I finished 11th in Sprint Race two. I’m massively grateful to Campos Racing for this opportunity” he said.

The next race weekend for Nannini will be the second Formula 3 round of the 2021 season at Paul Ricard (18-20 June).
