The Team Trident drivers had mixed fortunes in the first race held at the British racetrack. Pedro Piquet scored a solid sixth place, while Niko Kari and Devlin Defrancesco ended up out of the points zone after being rear-ended.
 


The opening race at the iconic Silverstone circuit, home to the fourth round of the FIA Formula 3 Championship, saw the Team Trident and its drivers put up a good pace although only Pedro Piquet was able to wrap up a significant result.



The 21-year-old Brazilian, who took the fourth row on the starting grid, secured a great sixth place at the end of a convincing run, held in close contact with the leading pack. Piquet highlighted his excellent racecraft and good overtaking moves to provide himself and the team with valuable points. Fifth in the championship rankings, he will start from the second row in tomorrow's race, with a good chance of aiming for the first win of the season.
 


It was not a lucky race for Niko Kari and Devlin Defrancesco, although the latter set an impressive second fastest lap in the free practice session. The Toronto-based driver was hit by a contender in the first few kilometres of the race suffering tire damage. For this reason, he had to stop in the pit lane. This also explains his 27th place. Niko Kari followed a very similar fate to his teammate.



In a fierce competition, a rival hit the Finnish driver, who spun off with a broken tire and a damaged sidepod. Kari then managed to complete a recovery race in the eighteenth position. Now the goal Team Trident's drivers and technical staff is to prepare with determination and attention to detail for the second race of the weekend, set to take place tomorrow morning at 8:35 local time, or 9:35 am in Italy.
 




Giacomo Ricci, Team Manager



“We are satisfied with the level of performance of our cars in the opening race of the weekend in the UK. Unfortunately, we collected points only with the excellent Pedro Piquet. The Brazilian showed a very solid pace, especially in the final stages, and took a remarkable sixth place that allows him to aim high in tomorrow's run.



I am sorry for the contacts that involved the faultless Niko Kari and Devlin Defrancesco, who had to return to the pits with damaged cars and thus did not collect points which would have been pretty valuable. Their race pace, as demonstrated when they returned to the track, was very good".
