As teams and drivers crossed the line in Race 2 at Yas Marina, the 2013 GP2 Series season came to its completion.

For the teams, and and several of the drivers, the engines won’t stop with the running of a collective test session at Abu Dhabi. The 3-day test will feature many of the series’ stars plus some fresh new rookie racers aiming to make their GP2 breakthrough.

Nathanael Berthon – P13 “I had a bad start off the line and I struggled more a lot with the lack of traction from the rear tire. I started with the tires I used during the race yesterday and I had a tough time off the corners when driving on the following straights.

However, I fought with the other drivers but I saw some reckless behaviour that should have been punished. Chicane cuts, continuous blocking on the straight and other infraction. It didn’t feel right to jeopardize the team’s work and mine by making risky moves that would have broken the rules”.

Gianmarco Raimondo – P15 “I’m satisfied with the feedback from today’s race. I had the right pace to be in-line with my direct opponents, and managed to fight with them on equal terms. At the start I improved my position, but the first-lap melee made me lose the spots gained.

I’m happy because everything went well, we improved throughout the race and I got more experience which will be key in the future. The car isn’t easy to set-up, but the team definitely helped me with that”.
