Emirati in control as he looks to extend lead in F2 world title race
 
 
Abu Dhabi, UAE, 25 August, 2019:  Team Abu Dhabi's Rashed Al Qemzi provided more evidence today that he has the UIM F2 World Championship under control as he set the early pace in the Grand Prix of Italy.
 
Al Qemzi, who has carried a 14-point lead over Dutchman Ferdinand Zandbergen into the third round of the series in Brindisi, was in dominant form again during the Group A free practice session, setting a fastest lap of 34.5 secs.
 
With Sweden's Daniel Segenmark second fastest in 35.44 ahead of Germany's Grand Prix of Norway winner, Stefan Hagin in 36.19, Team Abu Dhabi's Rashed Al Tayer recorded the fifth fastest time of 36.60.
 
Al Qemzi, the 2017 F2 world champion and opening round winner in Lithuania, looked in perfect shape to pursue a third consecutive pole position later in the day for tomorrow's Grand Prix of Italy commencing at 6.30pm local time.
 
The two Emirati drivers had spent two days earlier in the week testing on Lake Maggiore in San Nazzaro, Italy under the guidance of Team Abu Dhabi manager, Guido Cappellini.
