Trident made a terrible start to the third round of the 2020 Formula 2 season as Roy Nissany and Marino Sato clashed on track in Hungary.
The opening race at the Hungaroring saw Team Trident faced with a day of bad luck. Both drivers were forced to retire when Israeli driver Nissany missed his breaking point at Turn 1 and collided with Sato.
The Trident pair were looking for a strong race following disappointment in qualifying. They lined up 18th and 19th on the grid for the third Formula 2 feature race of the year.

Nissany promptly apologised to both Sato and the team for his mistake and the consequences it had caused.
Trident team manager, Giacomo Ricci, said: “There’s not really much to say after the feature race. Unfortunately, our drivers collided in the early stages, which led to a double instant retirement. It’s a pity because the race itself has been full of surprises and they could have performed brilliantly.”
The team now looks to the sprint race on Sunday, where they will hope for a better outcome.
