BARCELLONA, DIFFICULT QUALIFYING FOR SCUDERIA COLONI DIFFICULT

The first qualifying session of the GP22010 season was not easy for Scuderia Coloni. The Italian team's cars posted respectively the 17th time with Alberto Valerio (1'29"271) and the 23rd time with Vladimir Arabadzhiev (1'29"912).

Actually, the brazilian driver was pretty fast in the first part of the session and he was pushing as hard as he could to improve. Unfortunately, his best lap was ruined by the cars of Marcus Ericsson and Fabio Leimer slowing down in the last chicane, something that costed Alberto some precious tenths.

Arabadzhiev was even more unlucky. Not only the Bulgarian driver was forced to lose half of the session for a "drive by wire" problem, but when he finally managed to complete his first outing, he was then halted in pit lane for the weighing operations, losing other vital minutes. The team managed to send him on track for a last try, but he had to slow down due to the yellow flags caused by Bianchi's spin.
