FIA F2 Championship, Budapest, Sprint Race
Sunday, July 29th 2018
 



The results of the Sprint Race held by the FIA Formula 2 Championship Hungaroring track did not reflect the eve's plans.


 
The final race of the FIA Formula 2 Championship weekend at Hungaroring did not reflect the early expectations of Team Trident. The Italian squad saw Arjun Maini take-off from the 12th spot of the grid for the Sprint Race, but,  after a promising beginning, he was not able to optimize his tires' thermal degradation, ending up in 14th place.



Because of the high temperatures, degradation has been particularly high and many drivers faced late struggles. The twenty-year-old from Bangalore also ran for the whole race with an off-center steering wheel due to an early contact.



Good luck certainly did not help rookie Alessio Lorandi who, after the promising result of yesterday's Feature Race, was pushed into the barriers by two contenders who collided during the opening lap.



 The nineteen-year-old Italian, whose main goal was to gain experience on the F2 car, was immediately forced to retire. Now the championship about to take a month-long break. The next round will be at the end of the month at the famed Spa-Francorchamps circuit.
 



Giacomo Ricci, Team Manager:

 
"It certainly wasn't a lucky race. Alessio Lorandi was pushed against the barriers during the opening lap in an unavoidable contact. He was prevented from gaining experience in the new category.


 Arjun Maini had good potential, but was slowed down by thermal degradation caused by the high temperatures".





FIA F2 Championship, Budapest, Feature Race
Saturday, July 28th 2018



The track conditions, which dried up following a downpour, affected the outcome of the Feature Race for Team Trident. Arjun Maini did not find the right chemistry in the early stages and ended up on the verge of the top-ten. Alessio Lorandi delivered a promising debut.

The changing conditions of the Budapest track, which progressively dried up following an early downpour, provided a tricky test for the Team Trident all-rookie driver pairing. After a convincing eighth fastest time in qualifying, Arjun Maini put together an excellent start and posted some good overtaking maneuvers in the early stages of the race.



On a wet track, the Indian racer did not find the right chemistry and lost several positions. After switching to slick tires, he really impressed though with a solid race pace. Alongside Maini, Team Trident lined-up 19-year-old Italian Alessio Lorandi.



The guy from Brescia did not make mistakes in the early stages of the Feature Race and showed a growing pace that allowed him to score the fourth fastest lap time. Now the two young drivers have the goal to prepare well, together with their technical staff, for the Sprint Race that will start tomorrow morning at 11:20 am.




Giacomo Ricci, Team Manager:

"We could not collect results in line with our potential in today's race. Arjun Maini once again starred in qualifying, but struggled in the early stages of the wet race, before finding a good pace in the latest stages.


 I'm satisfied with Alessio Lorandi's Formula 2 debut. He did not make mistakes and improved lap by lap."
