Gimmi dominates Race 1

An absolutely perfect Gianmaria Bruni has dominantly obtained his second season victory for Trident Racing. Bruni was at the front practically from the pole position right to the end, except for some of the laps after the pit stop. Even with this extraordinary victory, the Roman driver was quite anxious due to a few small problems, which kept him from obtaining an easy victory, granting the German public a great fight on tenths of a second with Lewis Hamilton. But Bruni continued to control his opponent with coldness and great determination, bringing himself once again to the top of the championship classification. Andreas Zuber, due to a contact at the second curve where he found himself already in sixth position thanks to a great start, instead managed only 8 laps where he then was forced to retire from the race due to the consequences of the contact from the first lap. Tomorrow he will start from the twentyfourth position.

Gimmi Bruni # 26 -Winner
"Yesterday I said that it would be hard. In fact, it was, because in the beginning Piquet hit me damaging my exhaust. Then I had an electronic problem with the gearbox that unabled me to use the 6th gear. In the end, Premat was behind me for a few laps, while I was overlapping him. Hamilton was chasing me, so I was pretty busy holding on to the first position. But the car was good and I knew I could win regardless. I think I did a good job".

Alessandro Alunni Bravi - Team Principal
"Today Gimmi deserves a great hand shake for his splendid performance: this victory is entirely his. Gimmi did not make even the slightest mistake and pushed, driving the whole race as if he was trying for a fastest lap, even if the left part of the exhaust was broken, because of a contact with Piquet during the first lap and even without the sixth gear just after a few laps: an excellent race, above all after the pitstop, when he took advantage during overlapping while defending with experience the leadership. This victory brings Trident Racing at the top of the ranks in the championship classification, giving the team members a great motivation and trust for the final rush of the season. I would like to thank the entire team, from the engineers to the mechanics, for the way they have reacted after a few difficult races and for having continued to work hard for the victory".
