Trident suffer in the Sprint Race with two collisions.
Trident looked set for a possible victory until Roy Nissany was involved in a collision with Dan Ticktum that forced him to retire while Marino Sato was pushed off the track by Jehan Daruvala.
Nissany had got off the line well and was leading the race when he and Ticktum entered the “Les Combes” esses together and made contact. The Tel-Aviv driver came off the worst, crashing hard into the barriers. Luckily, he got out, unscathed, from his badly damaged car.
It was also a bad day for Sato who was pushed off the track by Daruvala during a solid race in the middle of the field.
Giacomo Ricci, Trident Team Manager, said: “There is a big regret for the crash in which Roy Nissany was involved as he could have aimed for the win. Unfortunately, Ticktum hit our driver, sending him into the barriers. The damage on the car is huge, but Roy is fine. Sato was also sent off the track by a rival, Jehan Daruvala. Now we need to put the emotions aside and move on. We need to focus on preparing for the next round in Monza.”
Trident will focus on preparing for the next round of the season at Monza, their home track.
