Trident Aim for the Points
Trident return with the Formula 2 Championship this weekend at Silverstone, for two rounds in as many weekends.
Their drivers, Roy Nissany and Marino Sato have the goal of bringing Trident back to the points.
While 2020 carries on, there is no rest for the Trident team. Formula 2 will embark upon another triple-header starting at the classic British circuit, the circuit where Formula 1 began in 1950 and will celebrate its 70th anniversary.
In the first three rounds of 2020, the Trident pair showed good potential and plenty of room for growth. In the second round, Sato and Nissany took home P11 and P13 respectively in qualifying but were hindered in the race due to a lack of experience in wet conditions and were prevented from turning their pace into championship points. In the next event at Budapest, a collision affected the weekend for both drivers.
The goal for Sato and Nissany at Silverstone will be to secure positive qualifying results and good chemistry with the track so they can aim for the points.
Silverstone, which has been repaved twice in the last two years, is very dependent on tyre management as the rubber is put to the test in the high-speed corner sequences. A key variable for the Norfolk track is the weather and the drivers, with a bit of experience driving the Formula 2 cars in the wet, will need to be ready for whatever the British track will throw at them.
Giacomo Ricci, The Trident Team Manager, said: “Silverstone is a demanding, fast and technical track. It also brings high thermal degradation for tyres. The team will put up its maximum effort to allow both drivers to recover after the difficult weekend in Budapest. Our goal is to return to the points zone and make the best use of the variables that may arise due to the weather conditions, which are often decisive to shape up the races held in the UK.”
The drivers and the technical staff of the team prepared for the upcoming run of three races with concentration. Now it will be down to the drivers and the track to provide the answers.
