With three experienced racers and a young and talented rookie, the Italian squad is definitely aiming for the championship’s title. A goal that was only missed by a small margin last season.Antonio Fuoco, Artur Janosz and Sandy Stuvik will be back in a well-known package for them regarding the event format and the Pirelli tires. On the other hand, they will be driving a brand-new racecar featuring a different engine and increased downforce in an effort to close the gap towards the GP2 Series in terms of performance.The experience gathered with the Pirelli tires in terms of their management over the weekend will be extremely valuable, while the young Giuliano Alesi will try to quickly gain the experience needed to follow in the footsteps of his famous father. The team is sure he will be up to the task despite lining-up in a completely new championship for him.Italian 19-year-old Fuoco had the chance to test a Trident-prepared GP3 car in postseason testing at Abu Dhabi. The chemistry was great straight away and he delivered outstanding result by staying among the frontrunners for the whole time.Polish racer Artur Janosz is extending his partnership with the Italian team. In his maiden GP3 Series, he was able to improve consistently and cruised to some really positive results in the second half of 2015. The whole Trident stable is relying on him, knowing that he will be able to fight among the leaders in 2016.Alesi will drive the team’s third car. The Frenchman already showed great commitment and motivation in the season-ending test, and Trident is determined to help the son of former F.1 racer Jean Alesi in his maiden GP3 run, knowing that he will soon be able to match the performance of his more experienced team-mates.Last but not least, Sandy Stuvik will try to rebound from a difficult 2015 season. Trident is aware of the Thai racer’s speed skills and decided to hand him the #8 car in order to finally reverse his fortunes.Maurizio Salvadori, Team Principal Trident: “We will be fielding four drivers that can score great results this season. I am extremely satisfied to announce our full line-up so early as it will enable us to anticipate and improve our preparation. The goal is to remain at the top of the GP3 Series in both the driver and the team standings”.
