TRIDENT - FIA F3 Championship, Le Castellet, Race One review

The Team Trident drivers delivered a convincing performance at the iconic French venue. Pedro Piquet ended up with a remarkable third place. Niko Kari and Devlin DeFrancesco ended up in arrears having been hit from behind by some contenders.
 



Race 1 of the second round of the 2019 FIA Formula 3 Championship, held at the French Le Castellet circuit, saw Team Trident express very convincing levels of performance. 20-year-old Brazilian driver Pedro Piquet, who had secured an excellent second row on the starting grid at the end of the qualifying session, took a remarkable third place at the end of a high-level race that saw him constantly play a leading role.
 


In the final stages of the race, second place was in the frame of the Brazilian, who was particularly quick in the second half. Niko Kari had an equally convincing run coming from a podium in the previous round at Montmelò. The 19-year-old Finnish driver was largely in the top-ten when he was hit by a rival. Canadian Devlin DeFrancesco also expressed himself on excellent levels, impressing the team.



The Ontario-based driver fought as hard as he could to get into the points zone, but in the final stages of the race, he was hit by another car, which left him with a punctured tire. Now the drivers and their technical staff will analyze the feedback gathered in the first run in the usual work of preparation for Race Two, which will start tomorrow at 9:55 and will see Pedro Piquet take-off from the fifth position on the grid. A recovery strategy will be set for Niko Kari and Devlin Defrancesco's race.
 



Giacomo Ricci, Team Manager


"We are greatly satisfied with the excellent qualifying results and for the first main race, podium finish for Pedro Piquet, who gave the best interpretation of the tough French venue and its challenges. Great notes of merit must go to Niko Kari and to a brilliant Devlin DeFrancesco.



 Both were brilliant protagonists, but they did not score points in Race 1 due to rear-end collisions started by their contenders. A real shame, first and foremost for our drivers, but also the whole team. A pole position or a placing on the front rows of tomorrow's run would have allowed us to collect more points!"
 




Pedro Piquet, Team Trident, Le Castellet third-place finisher



"I'm satisfied to have scored a podium at the end of a very intense race. I started well, climbing to second place. Later I lost a few positions, but my car came back very competitive in the second half of the race. We managed to keep tire degradation under control. Now, we have to work with the team to improve ourselves.”
