TRIDENT - FIA F2 Championship, Baku, Sprint Race

29.04.2019: The outcome of the Sprint Race held at Baku by Team Trident drivers Giuliano Alesi and Ralph Boschung has unfortunately been similar to the one of yesterday’s heat. Both drivers were involved in race contact that prevented them from seeing the finish.

The outcome of the Sprint Race held at Baku by Team Trident drivers Giuliano Alesi and Ralph Boschung has unfortunately been similar to the one of yesterday’s heat. Both drivers were involved in race contact that prevented them from seeing the finish.
 


The scenic Baku City Circuit hosted the second round of the FIA Formula 2 Championship, and entering today’s Sprint Race, the Team Trident drivers faced bumpy rides and couldn't see the checkered flag. Their fate was unfortunately similar to the one of the main race Saturday when they were involved in a multi-car accident at the first corner. Returning to the Sprint Race, both drivers started and passed the opening corner without any problem.


On lap 2 though, Ralph Boschung, who had gained a position at the start, was hit by the car of Tatiana Calderon and forced to stop in the escape route. Moving on to Giuliano Alesi, the 19-year-old Frenchman, part of the Ferrari Driver Academy, was pushing to gain a top-ten position. Unfortunately, a late braking manoeuvre while passing a contender led him against the external barriers. In the collision, the car was damaged enough to cause its retirement.



The race held on the shores of the Caspian Sea certainly did not bring luck to Team Trident, and the Italian squad is ready to be back on the right path from the next round of the season which will take place in Barcelona on the second weekend of May together with the Spanish Grand Prix.
 



Giacomo Ricci, Team Manager


 
“Unfortunately, as happened in the Feature Race, both of our cars did not finish race 2 due to crashes. For the second consecutive time, Boschung was totally free of any responsibility. He had everything he needed to drive a great race. Alesi was pushing to take a top-ten position but hit the barriers. Now we will work with the usual attention to reverse our fortunes in the next round at Montmelò ".
