Trident GP3 Thursday test review

His learning job continued in the second test day for the young Amaury driver who with his dedication and consistency was able to demonstrate his capacity to learn very quickly the dynamics besides the management of the GP3 car. Today was also a very important day for him to accumulate kilometers which will allow him to grow as a driver in view of his interest in being part of this category. Bonduel found the car easy to driver and despite his young age did not identify any difficulty in bringing to term the learning process thought out for him.

Throughout the day, Ghiotto was finally able to take advantage of the work started yesterday with Trident. The Italian driver who closed with a first lap time in this morning's session and a third place lap time this afternoon (in any case first between his compatriots), was very good at managing the car with both new and used tyres maintaining the leadership of the group almost until the end even during the second session. Naturally during this test day, besides the search for performance, Luca and the technical staff tested various set up configurations that allowed us to collect a lot of important information. Therefore thanks to his contribution, the team is developing the one-seater in order to find the solution to the winning set up.

The 20 year old Zaid Ashkanani debuted in the GP3 Championship behind the wheel of the Trident #24 car. The result was positive in that the Kuwaiti driver brought to term the constant learning and adaptation job to the one-seater planned in this test day. Unfortunately in the afternoon he was not able to take advantage at best the set of new tyres and closed test sessions in the 18th & 19th positions. We are in any case satisfied with what Ashkanani has carried out who demonstrated his capacity to be able to adapt his driving style to the behavior of the demanding GP3 one-seater.
