Scuderia Coloni Abu Dhabi qualifying report

Scuderia Coloni press release

ABU DHABI, QUALIFYING: SCUDERIA COLONI IN THE TOP TEN WITH CECCON AND COLETTI

Scuderia Coloni started the Abu Dhabi weekend with a good result: Kevin Ceccon and Stefano Coletti posted respectively the 7th and 10th quickest laptime of today’s Qualifying for the Abu Dhabi GP2 Finale, meaning that they will start tomorrow’s race from fourth and fifth row.

The Qualifying outcome could have been even better for the Italian team, but a red flag with just 4 minutes to go had a massive influence on an already hard-fought session that in the end saw 18 drivers packed in just 1 second.

The stoppage affected both Coletti and Ceccon, who where forced to stop when they were improving their laptimes. Ceccon in particular was boasting some really staggering split times, a performance that would have been worth a front-row result if it wasn’t for the flag. Both drivers went out for a final try when the Race Direction gave the green again, but with 26 cars lapping at the same time traffic made any improvement just impossible.

Paolo Coloni: “Being so damaged by the red flag was a pity, but we aren’t too worried because the race will be long and both our drivers have a pace that is much better than what this qualifying session is telling.

Ceccon’s split times were particularly impressive, he even had the best third sector overall, so with a good race management tomorrow there’s no limit to what we could achieve. Besides this, we have to remember that this GP2 Finale is made of two races: our aim is to score more points than everybody else at the end of the weekend, and we will do our best to achieve that”.
