Trident Racing Bahrain GP2 race 2 review

19.04.2015: GP2 Series - 1st ROUND BAHRAIN - RACE 2 SAKHIR CIRCUIT The first weekend of the 2015 GP2 Series didn't provide Trident


The first weekend of the 2015 GP2 Series didn't provide Trident with the results that were awaited and expected before the beginning of the season. In today's sprint race, both drivers started from the back and a double comeback was expected.

Unfortunately though, the car driven by Binder was forced to retire in the opening lap due to a contact, while Marciello, who suffered from high tire degradation as well as some of his opponents, was called back to the pits with ten laps to go to switch to the Option Soft prime.

The pit-stop pushed Lello back in 20th place, but enabled him to evaluate the car's set-up on the softer tires, collecting a valuable feedback for the team in terms of the next few races. Both drivers and the whole Trident squad are looking forward to the next round of the series, scheduled in less than two weeks at Barcelona. The Spanish track will also host the opening event of the GP3 Series.


Following to yesterday's retirement, due to a race incident, Lello started from the 20th with Prime Medium tires. His start was really good and in just a few laps he had made up four position. At half distance though, the tires started to fade, especially at the rear, making the car tough to manage.

 As a consequence, Marciello had to go back to the pits for a change. With the new set, the pace was competitive once again and Marciello clocked the fastest lap of the day 1:44.715.

Final Position: P20
Starting Position: P20
Eventual additional Pit Stop and its reason: at the 18th lap for tyres degradation
Tyres compound on grid start: Medium
Team's strategy: Prime / Option



For Binder, the weekend in Bahrain ended after two laps of Race 2 following a contact with another car. Actually, the incident hasn't been a particularly relevant one, but damaged a front left suspension arm in a way that made the car unusable for the rest of the weekend.

Final Position: NC
Starting Position: P17
Tyres compound on grid start: Medium
Team's strategy: Option
Retired: at the 2nd lap for a contact that damaged his car
