FIA F3 Championship, Spielberg, Round 2, Race Two Report

The Team Trident drivers confirmed their great form with another remarkable performance as all three cars ended race 2 at Red Bull Ring. David Beckmann took another great podium finish.
 
The second round of the FIA Formula 3 Championship on the Styrian circuit ended with another high-level performance for Team Trident. All three drivers ended up in the top-10 positions in the final race held at the Red Bull Ring. David Beckmann confirmed the third position taken in Race 1 at the end of a careful but aggressive race. The German driver rose to fourth place in the championship ranking. Excellent news also came from Olli Caldwell, who got a sixth-place after the top-5 position he got in Race 1, confirming his remarkable growth. Lirim Zendeli, who delivered an excellent second place in Race One, fought hard in the leading pack but lost time in some battles and did not go beyond a still positive 10th position. Overall, the three Team Trident drivers were extremely competitive. The valuable points they brought home allow the Italian squad to strengthen the second position in the team.  However, there is no time to celebrate, as the FIA Formula 3 Championship will be back next weekend for the third round of the season scheduled on the ups and downs of the Hungaroring, on the outskirts of Budapest. The drivers and the team's technical staff will soon get back to work to prepare for the demanding Hungarian event.
 
Giacomo Ricci, Team Manager
"I am pretty satisfied, we ended the Austrian doubleheader with another convincing run. We did not settle after the good result of Race 1 and we took another great podium finish with David Beckmann. Due to the reversal of the top ten positions on the grid, our drivers were called to a comeback race and lost time battling among the pack. This was especially the case for Zendeli, who had excellent potential. Caldwell took a remarkable sixth place which marks a very positive weekend for him. "
