Pune: Kush Maini capped off the Italian F4 Championship in style, with a brilliant podium finish in Race 3 at Monza. The GoPro ambassador secured points finishes in all three races of the final race weekend, with P6 and P7 finishes in Race 2 and 3 respectively. He finishes the Italian F4 season in 9th place in the driver’s championship.

The Jenzer Motorsport driver began the weekend finishing P5 in both the practice sessions, within half a second off the session leaders. The Qualifying sessions also shaped up similarly, with Kush’s times less than half a second off the pole-sitters. Race 1 began in overcast conditions with feisty wheel to wheel racing, with Kush swapping places with Bhaitech driver Wahbeh throughout the race to eventually claim 6th position.

The second race at Monza began behind the safety car on a cold, foggy Sunday morning. The first few laps itself saw Maini fall back to 13th, trying to navigate the tough conditions. However, a strong fight back saw him jump six positions up to P7 in the 14-Lap race.
