The speed was there – not the points!
Excellent performance for Richelmi who, with a good time of 1'40"704, won the third row of the Race 1 grid
"It's a slightly disappointing start so we're not all that happy with the results," said François Sicard, DAMS general manager.
Thanks to the overthrow of the grid, DAMS team's Stéphane Richelmi will see the start of the "Sprint Race," on the second race of the GP2 weekend.
The overall results of the Spanish week were very beneficial for the team and its drivers.
Three days surely very good for the driver, ready for the 2013 season.
The GP2 Series teams will move to Barcelona next week for their final presason test days.
At the end of the day, the DAMS driver finished in 8th place with 28 laps further.
Richelmi is ready for the 2013 season with the experience gained in the GP2 past season and a great career in the most important formulas.
It's been a pretty unlucky weekend for Trident Racing, but there will be plenty of chances to recover.
Leal scores points, Richelmi taken out on lap 5.
