“We should be able to bounce back in Spa” after struggling for pace at Misano says Ugochukwu

“We should be able to bounce back in Spa” after struggling for pace at Misano says Ugochukwu

Ugo Ugochukwu says “we should be able to bounce back in Spa” after the American drove to two podium finishes in Italian F4 at Misano.

The PREMA driver sits second in the championship behind Red Bull Junior Arvid Lindblad after two rounds.

Ugochukwu said to Parc Fermé that the pace wasn’t up to the standard he expected but remains confident he can return to form next time out at Spa-Francorchamps.

“Overall the speed was not the best but we’ll see sometimes things are not fully in your control and looking at the pace at Imola I think it was quite good and I think we should be able to bounce back in Spa really well.”

The McLaren young driver scored a sixth place in Race 1 before scoring two consecutive podiums to end the weekend.

Lindblad performed admirably at Misano taking a double victory and a second place to stretch his lead at the top of the championship to a commanding 48 points.

Ugochukwu is eagerly anticipating the next round of the season at Spa to gain some points back after a mixed weekend at Misano.

“Overall it was not a bad weekend, two podiums out of three so definitely not bad. 

“The speed overall was not as good as Imola and just struggled a bit for pace this weekend so I lost quite a bit of points to the championship leader which is not ideal but overall not too bad. 

“I think already looking forward to Spa and seeing if we can make some of the points back.

“Of course we always analyse after the weekend what we can do better and what we can improve so that’s what we’ll do. See where we could’ve gone quicker and try to do better in Spa.”

The third round of the Italian F4 championship is on the 26-28 May.
