Trident Have Comeback Race

The Sprint Race in Bahrain saw Trident make a great comeback after a tough Feature Race saw them finish in the bottom half of the field.

Despite both drivers finishing outside of the points in the Sprint Race, it was still a good race for Trident as they both fought their way through the field.

Marino Sato started the Sprint Race from 20th and showed solid pace throughout the race, which allowed him to climb up to 11th place by the end. The Japanese driver, who didn’t run in the practice session this weekend, ended the first Bahrain outing with clear progress and encouraging progress. Roy Nissany moved from 15th on the grid to ninth place, sealing a positive day for the team.

Trident Team Manager, Giacomo Ricci, said: “We are satisfied with today’s performance, which came on a challenging and technical track like Sakhir. Roy Nissany put together a convincing comeback that handed him the ninth position. An extra lap would have probably allowed him to overtake Drugovich as well and return to the points. Marino Sato enjoyed a positive day too, going from P20 to the eleventh place after not running in free practice which penalized him. Based on the momentum of today’s encouraging performance, we must now prepare for the final race of the season, a program for next weekend again in Sakhir.”

The calendar means that Trident and their drivers don’t have time to rest before the season finale next weekend as the series stays in Bahrain.

A different track configuration for the next round means that Trident will need to focus on preparing for the new challenge after an encouraging pace.
