UIM President Dr. Raffaele Chiulli has taken the decision to honour all 3 racers in Monaco, normally only the Gold Medalist is invited to Monaco.
The drivers received the following invitation from the President today:
It is our pleasure to address to you a personal invitation to attend the 10th edition of the UIM Awards Giving Ceremony & Gala Dinner and you will also be welcome to attend the press conference in the afternoon.
It is on occasion of the UIM Awards Giving Ceremony that we will have the pleasure to call you on stage to receive your F2 World Championship Medal.
Riabko commented on the news from Lithuania:
I had a fantastic 2018 season, winning the European Championship in my home race, and finishing 3rd in the World Championship.
It was amazing.
To receive my Bronze Medal together with my two friends, Alberto and Rashid in Monaco is a huge honour for me.
My wife and I are really looking forward to the event.
