The Trident Team on track for opening F2 2019 pre-season test at Jerez de la Frontera

FIA Formula 2 Championship, Pre-season test




Lining-up at the Andalusian track, traditionally hosting pre-season testing,  the Team Trident performed well by setting a convincing pace. The drivers carried out a great amount of valuable work and the team’s technical staff was thus able to set a good baseline set-up.




The FIA Formula 2 Championship cars went back on-track at the Jerez de la Frontera track in Andalusia, Spain, for the first round of pre-season testing. There was a lot of curiosity and attention around the championship, which is gaining more and more momentum and appreciation having promoted three of its stars to Formula 1 at the end of last.




It was a great debut for 19-year-old Frenchman Giuliano Alesi, who impressed right away at the Spanish venue. The Ferrari Driver Academy man, son of former Formula 1 driver Jean Alesi, delivered some good and constantly-improving runs and eventually ended the most representative sessions, the ones of the third day,  among the frontrunners.



Alesi concluded the morning session in seventh place as the main contenders went out for their top performances thanks to more favourable track conditions. In the afternoon, the French teenager completed the session, which was dedicated to long-runs and race simulations, in third place. While considering the relativity of lap times at this stage of the season, they are nonetheless really encouraging.



On the second Team Trident car, Ralph Boschung posted 34 laps in the first day, while in the second and third day, another Ferrari Driver Academy racer, Antonio Fuoco, went out on track to carry out some important fine-tuning work with different set-up solutions. He ended the final session, dedicated to race simulations, in second place, only four-thousandths of a second away from the lead.



Overall, it was an encouraging first step into the new season for the Team Trident Team. The technical staff will now analyze the data collected, to prepare the second round of the pre-season testing which will be on the Catalan track of Montmelò on March 5th to 7th.





Giacomo Ricci, Team Manager


"The balance of this first round of the pre-season testing is certainly positive. We tried different set-up solutions with encouraging results. The comparative work with differentiated downforce and balancing was successfully carried out by our drivers and allowed our technical staff to identify a good basic set-up.



Alesi completed an impressive amount of work together with Antonio Fuoco, who brought his experience to the team. Both of them focused mainly on the development of the car, sacrificing the search of quick lap times which will become a more important priority in the second round of the pre-season testing to be held next week in Barcelona.




I personally thank Fuoco for his work. He had a great time with Team Trident, ending up third in the GP3 Series in 2016. The team value him a lot and is very happy to have him on board again ".
