Trident may not have scored points in this weekend’s Formula 2, but they showed better pace than in previous weeks.
Roy Nissany and Marino Sato held their own in the midfield but couldn’t break into the top 10. The pair showed good pace in the Sprint Race, but low grid positions cost them.
Nissany finished the Sprint Race in 15th, making a great comeback drive from 18th while Sato finished two places behind.
There were barely any overtakes as trains of cars formed near the beginning of the race, making it hard to pass. This also had an impact on the tyres, and the Trident pair suffered from degradation in the early stages.
Giacomo Ricci, Trident Team Manager, said: “Our drivers put together a linear race in the second half of the pack. Their position on the starting grid clearly influenced the outcome of today’s race, which featured little chance for overtaking. There were trains of cars at the beginning, and ours suffered from degradation in the first phase of the running. As the laps went by, the graining disappeared, allowing our drivers to put up a good pace in the final part stages.”
Trident is prepared for Barcelona as Formula 2 heads there for round six of the 2020 season.
