Johnny Cecotto Jr. DNF

Adrian Zaugg ended up the first race of the 2010 GP2 Main Series in 16th for Trident Racing. The South African's run was conditioned by the bad starting spot, but in a tough race due to the lack of grip, he made it to the checkered flag without mistakes. He'll be starting tomorrow's Race 2 from the 8th row.

Johnny Cecotto experienced a short and even more disappointing race The Venezuelan climbed out two spots in the first corner, but was then hit by another car, and ended up spinning. Cecotto, who lost any chance to score points, will start Race 2 from the back of the pack. The race is set for tomorrow at 10:30 with live coverage from Italy's National TV on RAI2.

Johnny Cecotto Jr. “I feel really disappointed. The race started in a really promising way, and at the first corner I didn't want to take any risk, due to the huge crash out front. In the following turns I realized I had some potential, and I passed two cars. Then, on Turn 10, I heard a bump from behind. It was Razia, and at that point there was nothing much to do. The car spun, and the engine stalled. It feels really bad especially because of the final results, as many drivers I had behind me ended up in a podium spot.”

Adrian Zaugg. “It's been a really tough race. The start wasn't the best, but at the first corner I recovered the lost ground thanks to a good line amid the whole traffic chaos. Unfortunately, I couldnt get more spots back, as my race pace wasn't at the top. I look forward to work with the team on a better set-up”
