Luciano Bacheta will have one hand on the 2012 FIA Formula Two
Championship trophy going into this afternoon's race at Monza, with
the Brit needing to hold onto his P2 start to clinch victory and
with it the Williams F1 test.
After dominating from the very first race, including a record-breaking four consecutive wins, Bacheta is on the verge of becoming the series' fourth winner and the second Brit after Dean Stoneman won in 2010.
His nearest rival, Mathéo Tuscher, will start from pole today but even if the 15-year-old Swiss takes victory, Bacheta will still secure the title providing he finishes second.
Speaking to Formulatwo.com the Comma Oil-backed driver said: "I'll race today as I always do, no special strategy. Qualifying today was one of the most hectic sessions of the year at a time of the year when I really don't need it, so it feels like anything can happen this weekend! My plan is just to stay out of trouble, do the best I can, try and seal it today and if need be follow him [Tuscher] home."
Today's round 15 gets underway at 14:30 (local time) with full coverage, including live streaming, on the official F2 website.
