Trident will head to Monaco for the second round of Formula 2.
Following the good run in Bahrain, Trident will carry on the momentum in the second round of the season. Both Marino Sato and Bent Viscaal will be at their maiden Monte Carlo experience.
The last time the Tridents drivers hit the track was the test session in Barcelona, where Viscaal finished the test with the fastest lap time in the afternoon of the final day.
The 21-year-old will accompany Trident for his debut in Monaco this weekend as they hope to carry on the good momentum after a positive run in the season opener in Bahrain.
Joining Viscaal at Trident will be Marino Sato, who will also make his first start at Monte Carlo. The Japanese driver, who made it into the points in Sakhir, is hoping for an equally competitive performance to improve his championship position.
The staff at Trident have to support two drivers at their debut in Monaco. It will be important for the drivers to rely on the team’s experience of the difficult street circuit if they want to avoid mistakes right from the start.
Giacomo Ricci, Trident Team Manager, said: “Monte Carlo is a fascinating and challenging track, and both our drivers will make their debut there. The technical staff will guide them with great attention and dedication.
“It will be key for Sato and Viscaal not to make mistakes in free practice, and the following qualifying session is going to be vital due to the lack of overtaking opportunities. I’m expecting a tough weekend, but I’m sure that there is the potential we need to perform with both drivers.
“The new format, featuring three races for the first time at Monte Carlo, will also offer more opportunities to impress the outsiders. Of course, it will be pivotal to stay away from the guard rails, not make mistakes and take advantage of every opportunity.”
The Trident cars will enter the track for the first time on Thursday morning for free practice. With qualifying scheduled for the same day with the cars divided into two groups.
