Trident in the Points
Trident brought home some good points as Roy Nissany took an impressive eighth place in the Feature Race and therefore, reverse grid for the Sprint Race. Marino Sato finished the race down in 15ht place spending the whole race in the middle of the pack.
Trident finally returned to the points with the eighth-place Nissany claimed despite starting from 15th. The Israeli driver opted for the alternative strategy, starting on the hard compound then moving onto the soft near the end of the race. He even put together a series of fast laps, and excellent overtakes that allowed him to claim eighth and reverse grid pole, only his second points finish.
Marino Sato finished 15th at the end of the Feature Race. The Japanese driver, who started 16th, lost places at the start. After changing tyres, he had a convincing race pace at times and finished in the middle of the pack.
In both pitstops the crew were quick and smooth, working very hard to perform without a hitch.
Giacomo Ricci, Trident Team Manager, said: “We are really pleased with Nissany’s remarkable performance, in line with his growth. He put up a very competitive race pace and climbed up to eighth position, which allows him to return to the points and start from the front of the grid in tomorrow’s Sprint Race. The team made a very quick tyre change, helping him finalize his comeback. Sato’s performance was linear, and he finished P15 after losing some positions at the start. The goal for tomorrow’s race is to fight for the victory with Nissany!”
Trident will want the victory in the Sprint Race with Nissany starting from reverse grid pole when they take to the track tomorrow morning for the race. Nissany will also be aiming for his first win of the season in the Sprint Race.
