Trident Aim for Points
Trident wants to get back in the points with both their drivers in Spain this weekend.
The goal for Roy Nissany and Marino Sato is to get into the top ten for some points. Nissany, who will also get out in the Williams F1 car this weekend, finished 18th and 15th in the second round at Silverstone. Sato, who started on the seventh row, took 17th in both races.
The Spanish track is a favourite for most drivers and teams and is common for tests. However, this is the first year where the race isn’t held in May, which mean the temperatures and the tyre degradation will be unknown. Tyre management is expected to be crucial this weekend with the unfamiliar conditions and the expected heat.
Giacomo Ricci, Trident Team Manager, said: “Next weekend the F2 series will be back in action at Montmelò, with the event being held for the first time in August. The outside temperatures are expected to be quite high. The thermal degradation of the tires could thus become a crucial variable in terms of how the weekend will pan out. The goal is to be back into the points.”
Trident staff and drivers have prepared with focus and will hope the track will favour them when the cars head onto the track.
