Giovanazzi does the KF2 double at Siena.

Home fans favourite Antonio Giovanazzi took two closely fought victories in the opening round of the WSK Master Series KF2 class at Siena in Italy.
Antonio Giovanazzi took a clean sweep of wins in the pre-final and final in the KF2 class at Siena in Italy in the opening round of the three-round WSK Master Series.

On paper Giovanazzi may sound like the dominant driver in the class but the reality was very different as Denmark's Max Klinkby-Silver paced timed qualifying and then Englishman Chris Lock led the intermediate classification thanks to two wins from his three heats.

Giovanazzi started the pre-final from third on the grid after a win and a pair of third place finishes in his heats but he was able to overhaul poleman Lock and Klinkby Silver to seal the first points of the year and pole position for the main final.

Klinkby Silver started alongside Giovanazzi for the final and the race soon developed into an all out war between the pairing with Lock holding a watching brief in third but unable to challenge the leaders.

After multiple exchanges for top spot Giovanazzi finally managed to hold off Klinkby-Silver over the final lap to take the win by a scant two tenths of a second with Lock completing the podium more than three second adrift and just ahead of Austrian Thomas Jager.

British domiciled Australian Mitchell Gilbert finished fourth with Sweden's Jonas Hansen fifth.

Of the other British drivers competing, Jordan King finished tenth overall.

Thanks to his two wins Giovanazzi unsurprisingly leads the championship standings on a perfect 65-points, 20 ahead of Klinkby-Silver and 35 ahead of Lock.
