The drivers of Team Trident faced hard fortunes in the final race of the FIA Formula 2 Championship in Styria. Roy Nissany collided with another driver, while Marino Sato was stopped by an engine problem.
In the Sprint Race held at the Spielberg circuit, which wrapped up the second round of the FIA Formula 2 Championship at the venue, the drivers of Team Trident had no luck. Roy Nissany, who started from P15 on the grid, came into contact with a rival in the early stages. After returning to the pit lane for checks, and having changed the tires, the Tel Aviv-born driver returned to the track on a very good pace but finished at the bottom of the pack. Japanese racer Marino Sato was forced to retire when his car stopped in the first few meters of the race due to a technical problem related to the engine manufacturer. The driver from Yokohama was prevented from confirming the promising levels of performance showed in qualifying. The calendar of the series offers no breathers: the FIA Formula 2 Championship will be back next weekend at the Hungaroring with the third round of the season. The technical staff and the drivers of Team Trident will soon get to work to prepare for the trip to Hungary,

"We had the goal of returning from Styria with another positive result, in line with previous races. Unfortunately, Nissany was hit by a rival in the early stages of the race. After passing through the pit lane and changing tires, the Israeli returned to the track and put up a good pace. Marino Sato suffered from a technical problem related to engine manufacturer which forced him to retire prematurely".
