Trident GP2 Series Abu Dhabi Race 1 review

Air Temperature 25° / Track Temperature 30°

P6 - JOHNNY CECOTTO

Starting from the sixth row with Pirelli Prime Medium set of tires, Johnny was able to quickly gain positions and stand ground to his opponents that behind him were trying to overtake him. He was an author of a great race where he finished with great determination until the last laps. The anticipated change of tyre strategy anticipated to mark Coletti, our direct opponent in the final driver classification for the championship, did not result in being optimal at the end of the race given that Johnny during the last laps suffered a severe tire degradation that saw him pull out from the 4th to the 6th position. The race report remains positive in any case: the lap times were always great, the car gave an excellent performance, the pitstop was fast and perfect and both the driver and the team gained points for the Final Classification. We are very confident for the sprint race tomorrow that will see Johnny start from the second row.

P12 - SERGIO CANAMASAS

Sergio was the author of a great start that saw him gain numerous positions from the first curves but unfortunately, a contact with Berthon made him slip back into 16th position where there he started his attack race. After the pitstop, the lap times were constantly improving and Canamasas reaching the 12th position where he was able to manage the tyres very well and manage his opponents behind him. Unfortunately for the cutting of a chicane during the race, the Catalano driver was penalized with 20 seconds in the Race 1 Classification that will bring him back 4 positions.Race 2 pre-announces itself as another attack race and we are confident in his remounting.
