Nicolas Todt protege Gabriele Mini pipped Prema team-mate Gabriele Bortoleto to the top of the times on the first day of Italian Formula 4 testing at Imola.
Mini topped the second and fourth sessions of the day, with the last one in the afternoon proving to be the quickest for most drivers.
His best lap, a 1m45.336s, was just 0.054s faster than Bortoleto’s, while Cram Motorsport’s Motorsport Games F4 Cup winner Andrea Rosso was an impressive third and just 0.087s off Mini’s pace.
Van Amersfoort Racing’s Red Bull junior Jonny Edgar topped the first afternoon session and ended up fourth fastest overall, ahead of Bhaitech’s morning pacesetter Jesse Salmenautio – who set more laps than anyone.
The top 15 drivers were covered by less than a second, with Edgar’s Red Bull stablemate and VAR team-mate Jak Crawford the only other driver within a quarter of a second of Mini in sixth.
Best of the unsigned drivers was karter Ollie Bearman in 11th place, who was 0.717s off the pace for Mucke Motorsport.
