The F3.5 sessions today have been shortened following a minor technical issue:
At the end of the first race, the Renault Sport Technologies engineers have detected a minor technical issue in a restricted number of Formula Renault 3.5 Series engines with a potential impact on their reliability.
With the aim of ensuring sporting equity, the college of Sporting Stewards, under the advice of the technical management, has announced this morning to the participants that the timed qualifying session will be reduced to 15 minutes, and the time of the race will be reduced to 29 minutes + one lap, without the compulsory pit stop.
The Organizing Committee apologizes for any of the inconveniences that this decision may cause to our partners and the spectators.
Like yesterday, qualifying starts at 8:50 GMT, and the race at 13:30 GMT. Not sure how Eurosport plans to do it in other countries, but in Holland they’ve decided to show WTCC at the Slovakiaring instead.
