FIA F3 Championship, Spa-Francorchamps, Race Two Report
After yesterday's race 1 win, Brazilian Pedro Piquet secured a sixth place in Race 2. Niko Kari was forced to retire, while Devlin Defrancesco was involved in a collisio
In the second race scheduled at the iconic Walloon track of Spa-Francorchamps, Team Trident collected a positive sixth position with 21-year-old Brazilian Pedro Piquet. The winner of Race One, who started from the eighth spot on the starting grid, managed to gain two positions with a solid run and secured more points, which allow him to establish the sixth place in the championship standings. Devlin Defrancesco had a good sprint off the line, but a contact at Le Combes in the early stages forced him to retire with a damaged tire and suspension. The Canadian driver showed a very convincing potential throughout the weekend, but could not finalize a positive result for the team in the effort to move forward in the championship. On the other hand, Niko Kari had no lack and had to park his car in the escape route after only one lap. Now the technical staff and drivers have the goal of concentrating on the next round of the season, scheduled for the weekend at Monza.
Giacomo Ricci, Team Manager
"We raced in a surreal mood today following yesterday's tragic crash that claimed the life of young Frenchman Anthoine Hubert. Team Trident stands close to the family of the unlucky racer in these terrible moments. Of course, there is no desire to celebrate at the end of a weekend that handed us an impressive race 1 win with Pedro Piquet. We just want to leave this tough weekend behind and prepare for our home race scheduled for the next weekend at Monza."
