In the fourth round of the season in the second category, hosted at the famed Silverstone track, the drivers of Team Trident were not lucky. Roy Nissany was involved in a collision, while Marino Sato finished in twentieth place.
In the opening race of round 4 of the FIA Formula 2 Championship, running at the British track of Silverstone this weekend, the Team Trident driver pairing ran into a challenging day. Israeli driver Roy Nissany, who started from 19th position on the starting grid, was involved in a collision in the first few kilometres of the race and was involved in the surrender due to a bent suspension.
Marino Sato, who was 17th in qualifying, was delayed in the early stages of the race, after a positive start, due to an off-track on the grass. The 20th position under the checkered flag really tells a lot for the Japanese racer as he could not set an incisive race pace.
Now the technical staff will examine the data from the Feature Race together with the drivers, in the preliminary work for the Sprint Race which will take place tomorrow morning at 11:10 am.
Giacomo Ricci, Team Manager:
"We have to roll up our sleeves to end the first weekend at Silverstone tomorrow with improving performance. It was a lacklustre day. Nissany was involved in a contact, which bent a suspension. Sato ended at the back after struggling with race pace".
