In the first day of races Diego in the qualifications failed to find the feeling with the Lombarda track, we remember that Castelletto is a very demanding track from the physical point of view, and he did not manage to do better than the ninth position on the grid.
In race 1 Diego at the start managed to recover a couple of positions, taking the seventh place he held until the checkered flag.

On the second day of racing Diego Monticelli because of the knee that still gave him problems decided to get on the track but his performance was not at his height.
