Trident Have Better Sprint Race
Trident had a better sprint race as Marino Sato almost got into the top 10 while Roy Nissany suffered a puncture.
Both drivers started towards the back due to bad luck in the first race of the weekend and had to fight their way through the pack. The lousy result did not impact the Trident driver’s motivation and focus on race two.
Japanese driver Sato finished the sprint race in 12th position, showing an improved pace compared to the feature race. The run featured little action or passes until a safety car gave a chance for a pitstop.
Unfortunately, both Trident drivers lost time behind a slower car. Nissany, who was slowed down by a flat tyre as well, finished four positions behind his teammate.
Giacomo Ricci, Trident Team Manager, said: “There are positive takeaways at the end of this sprint race. The team and drivers showed great focus and determination, which were the starting point for a good comeback drive especially for Sato, who climbed up to the 12th place. The pace of the Japanese driver clearly improved compared to the sprint race. Nissany was unfortunately slowed down by a puncture. We could have done more, but both our drivers lost time behind a slower car during neutralization.”
Trident will look forward to next week and the chance for revenge, with another round at Silverstone.
