Prema Powerteam driver Luca Ghiotto posted the fastest time on Friday of the Monza round of Formula Renault 2.0 Alps, topping practice three with a 1:49.700, with his teammate Antonio Fuoco leading the first practice session with a 1:50.176 and an impressive Egor Orudzhev topping the second session with a 1:50.604.

Practice one went smoothly with Fuoco going quickest, followed by Simon Tirman and Bruno Bonifacio in second and third respectively, with Ghiotto and Gregor Ramsay rounding out the top five.

Practice two was affected by two red flags; the first one was triggered when Daniele Cazzaniga made a mistake and went out at the Parabolica corner, and the second one was for Pietro Peccenini, who hit the barriers but did not substantially damage his vehicle. Orudzhev led the session with Joffrey De Narda in second, only 0.057s behind; Ghiotto was third, with Konstantin Tereshchenko and Simon Gachet completing the top five.

Practice three was?also interrupted by a red flag, brought out by Orudzhev spinning out. The session was topped by Ghiotto, who was half a second quicker than second placed Fuoco. Kevin Jorg took third, with Bonifacio in fourth and De Narda completing the top five.
