The 2010 GP2 Main Series season started today at Barcelona. The first qualifying practice of the year kicked off with the battle for Race 1's grid, as drivers hit the track to score the best possible spot.

Trident Racing ended up with a 14th place, thanks to the effort of Johnny Cecotto Jr., and a 21st place, with Adrian Zaugg. The session has been heavily conditioned by the track's conditions, which proved definitely better in the opening stages. The majority of the drivers running clocked their fastest lap on their first set of tires, to see laptimes grow consistently in the second half.

The GP2 weekend at Barcelona will continue tomorrow with 37-lap long Race 1, while Race 2 is set to start on Sunday at 10:35.

Johnny Cecotto Jr."I'm quite satified with my qualifying run. I'm sorry to have committed a slight but key mistake in the closing stages, when I had great splits in the first two sectors. I hoped to get closer to the top-10, but it ended up this way. All in all I'm happy , because I found a really well-balanced and consistent car. It makes me more confident for tomorrow."

Adrian Zaugg. "It's been a really tough session. With my first set of tires I made a mistake and then, with the second one, I got stuck in traffic on the two best laps available on new rubber. Any chance to improve vanished at that point. I was expecting a much better result, but now we must look forward to tomorrow's race, where I hope to find my way back towards the top."
