Team Trident faced hard fortunes in the final race Formula 2 held in Austria. Roy Nissany collided with another driver, while Marino Sato was forced to stop with an engine problem.
During the sprint race at the Spielberg circuit, the Trident drivers seemed to have no luck.
Nissany, who started 15th, had contact with another driver during the early stages of the race. The Tel Aviv-born driver was forced to return to the pits for checks and new tyres . Despite finishing at the back of the pack he showed some good pace.
Meanwhile, Sato was forced to retire when his car stopped in the first lap of the race due to an engine problem. The Japanese driver didn’t get a chance to show his talent after a promising qualifying.
Trident Team Manager, Giacomo Ricci, said: “We had the goal of returning from Styria with another positive result, in line with previous races. Unfortunately, Nissany was hit by a rival in the early stages of the race.
“After passing through the pit lane and changing tyres, the Israeli returned to the track and put up a good pace. Marino Sato suffered from a technical problem related to the engine manufacturer which forced him to retire prematurely.”
Trident will be back in business again next weekend at the Hungaroring. They’ll be hoping for better things for their drivers and their team when the FIA Formula 2 Championship returns.
